Jazmin Arnold won the CKG Billings leg at Northfield Park

Northfield, OH ---The ladies of the sulky made an extraordinary showing in the CKG Billings trot at Northfield Park on Sunday night (Nov 6) finishing first and second ,but it was Jazmin "the Little Flower" Arnold who shone brightest when she guided Buddy Hally to a gate-to-wire 1:56.4 victory over eight others, one of whom was Better Call Saul who was driven by accomplished Billings participant, Michelle "the Belle" Ruvola, making it a rarity when the ladies finished one-two in a CKG Billings harness racing event.

Sent off as second choice in the race, the talented and up-and-coming Arnold took no prisoners when she sent the 9-year-old altered son of Angus Hall to the lead and made every pole a winning one en route to an easy 2-1/2 length triumph over Better Call Saul. And to add to the tenuity in that contest is that third place finisher Tartufo Lindy, was driven by Ruvola's dad, Chicago George" Bonomo.

The race winner, Buddy Hally, is owned by Joseph Varga and is trained by Herman Hagerman. He paid $5.80.

It was the second seasonal Billings victory for Arnold who has been competing at the county fairs and now sports impressive stats of 18 wins, eight seconds and five thirds in 49 starts which equates to a very impressive .492 UDR
