Hot N Sporty made it a perfect five for five in the opening event on Wednesday night (July 27), the third leg of the Perdition Series for Illinois Conceived and Foaled 2-Year-Old pacers at Hawthorne.
James and Donna Crebs own Hot N Sporty.
This talented son of, also trained by James Crebs, with Tony Morgan in the bike, grabbed the lead soon after the quarter and was never seriously challenged from that point on.
Getting the mile in 1.54, he lowered his best lifetime mark by four-fifths of a second.
We can, hopefully expect to see Hot N Sporty on Friday, August 5, in the Final of the Perdition Series, with an estimated purse of $100,000.
Unfortunately, another top 2-Year-Old, Pujols who demolished the track record here in his last outing, will apparently be racing at the Meadowlands on the same evening.
When they met once before, Pujols went off as the even-money favourite but it was Hot N Sporty that came away with the victory.
In the second division of the Perdition Series My Boy David, owned by Shirley Le Vin and David Riff and trained by Homer Hochstetler and driven by Pat Berry came on late to score a ¾ length victory.
My Boy David’s final time for the mile was 1.54 and was the maiden victory of his career. That win was also enough to earn him a spot in the Perdition Series Final on August 5.
Free, owned by Robert Le Roy Enterprises Inc., trained by Stanley Miller, and driven by Ron Marsh scored the first win of her career and earned a trip to the Finals in the first division of the Sleazebisquit Series on Wednesday night.
She had displayed a pretty good late move in the past but this was the first time that she was able to pull it all together.
With the Finals, worth an estimated $100,000, coming up quickly, she might be getting good at the right time.
She got the mile in 1.55.2 and paid $24.00 for the win.
eine Bubbles made it two in a row and became the top money winner, to this point, in the Sleazebisquit Series when she scored a 1 ¾ length victory in her division.
The Final for the Sleazebisquit Series, for 2-Year-Old Filly Pacers, Conceived and Foaled in Illinois, will also be contested on August 5, Hawthorne’s inaugural Night of Champions and will also carry a purse estimated at $100,000.
This Robin Schadt-trained filly, owned by Mark Turchik and Odds n Racing, was driven to victory by Tim Tetrick.
