A jump up in class didn't seem to bother Low And Right, a five-year old Pro Bono Best offspring, out of the Kassa Branca mare Hosel Rocket, as he won the $10,000 Open Pace in 1:57, for owners Ted W. Cupp and Robert J Pawlak, here at Buffalo Raceway Saturday night (April 2). It was the first win this harness racing season for Low And Right, who had finished second in his last five races.

Low And Right ($15.00), leaving from post four in the field of eight, and driven by reinsman Ray Fisher, Jr., settled in fifth as Oh Gee Whiz (John Cummings, Jr.) and Crystal Guy (Jamie Dunlap) cut the early fractions. Oh Gee Whiz hit the quarter in :29.1, while Crystal Guy had the lead at the half in :59.2. Positioned first over on the outside, Low And Right made a strong backside brush, and took the lead at the three-quarters in 1:28.3. A sharp :28.2 last quarter-mile put the winner one length in front of second place finisher Spode To Be Black (Jim McNeight) at the finish line. Spender Hanover (Chris Page) came in the show spot.

Trained by Jim Graham, the $5,000 share of the winning purse put Low And Right’s seasons bankroll at $13,671, and $64,954 lifetime.

Driver Kevin Cummings was the hot driver on this cool night, steering home four winners. Cummings winners were Folding Money ($8.60), Cheyenne James ($4.10) Adelia’s Prince ($5.50), and Dontgetnsamsonsway ($18.60)

Racing will resume on Wednesday April 6, with first post scheduled for 6:40 pm.
