HARRINGTON, Del. - John Dayton's Just A Jolt ($3.80, Victor Kirby) reset the track record for 4-year-old pacing geldings Monday with a 1:50.3 triumph in the $17,000 Open Pace at Harrington Raceway.

The 4-year-old Village Jolt gelding was sent for the lead approaching the quarter-mile after being released by last week's winner Rock On Moe to an opening quarter of 27. With a parked Delaware Hanover on the outside for the entire mile, Just A Jolt marched on to the half mile in 55.1 and three-quarters in 1:23.3. Rock On Moe was unable to reel in Just A Jolt through a 27-second final panel with the latter prevailing by a length. Ez Noah, who was there-wide after the half-mile was a game third.

Trained by Jim King Jr., it was the eighth win of the year for Just A Jolt, and fourth already in five starts this year at Harrington. Just A Jolt broke his own 4-year-old track record, which was co-held by Western Ace (1:51.1).

Ross Wolfenden recorded a driving triple. A host of drivers had driving doubles including Kirby, Bret Brittingham, Montrell Teague, Allan Davis and Anthony Morgan.
