August 26, 2013 – Sally Hinckley dominated for the week in HANA Harness’ 2013 Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by the Hambletonian Society, Chicago Harness, IHHA, Meadowlands, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs.  Hinckley’s $186 profit for the week was $129 ahead of the second place finisher Mark McKelvie.  Also on the plus side of the ledger was Rusty Nash who eked out a $16.50 profit.  Despite a negative finish for the week, Richard Scott retains the overall lead by a margin of $786.    

Hinckley can attribute her coming out on top for the week thanks to hitting a $5 Trifecta key in the first division of the Kentuckiana for 2yo filly trotters at Hoosier Park which added $248 to her gross profit.
