HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Dont Say Goodby (Peter Wrenn) continued his winning ways in Western New York as he made it three straight locally by capturing the $10,500 Open Pace at Buffalo Raceway Saturday night (Jan. 18).
Since arriving from Indiana in November, Dont Say Goodby ($4.20) has been a perfect three-for-three, all coming in the Open paces.
The 6-year-old gelding won two Opens at Batavia Downs in November and found his new surroundings at Buffalo Raceway to his liking as well. He registered an impressive 5-1/4 length victory in 1:56 over the pace-setting Sand Summerfield (Dan Rawlings) while Sand Savage (Ray Fisher Jr.) placed third in the field of seven.
Sand Summerfield put down fractions of 27.4, 56.4 and 1:27 over the fast track. But by the time he had reached the three-quarter pole, Dont Say Goodby was winging it on the outside and used a 29-second last quarter to easily pace away from the field.
Dont Say Goodby (Dontgetinmyway-Good By Albratross) is owned by Derek Menchhofer and is trained by Charles Stewart. It was his 14th career victory and moved his earnings to $170,987 lifetime.
Buffalo Raceway moves to a four-day schedule this week with racing Wednesday and Thursday nights at 5 p.m. while Friday and Saturday nights will have action getting underway at 6:40 p.m. The $5,000 Guaranteed Pick 4 will be Wednesday night starting in the fifth race.
