Master Of Desire pulls a giant upset
LEBANON, OH. - Heavy favorites had won the first two weekly $10,000 Open paces at Miami Valley's inaugural harness racing meet, establishing track records in each, but that certainly was not the case Saturday night as Master Of Desire pulled a giant upset and rewarded $2 backers with a $72.80 mutuel return.
 
The seven-year-old Illinois invader, racing for the Chupp Racing Stable of trainer Merv Chupp, sat fifth at the :27.1 quarter mile marker and :55.1 halfway point, then was guided by reinsman Josh Sutton into the outer flow. Still fourth at the 1:23.2 three-quarters and double-wide the son of Real Desire exploded with a final panel of :28 to stop the clock in 1:52, just one-fifth of a second off the track standard. I'm Feelin Good (Tony Hall) and Carmens Best (Pat Berry) were seven lengths back at the wire but earned the place and show checks.
 
Earlier on the card a $7000 conditioned pace produced a 1:53.2 winner as Fly Away (Berry) topped Justa Cowboy (Robert Smolin) and Spill The Beans (Kayne Kauffman). Sherif Cunmulaj trains the five-year-old son of All American Native for the Baron Racing Stable.
 
Racing resumes Sunday night at Miami Valley with a 6:30 p.m. post time.
