Columbus, MN - The Tuesday night (Aug. 28) harness racing program at Running Aces played host to the $14,000 Minnesota-Sired 2 Year Old Trot event, and it would feature another impressive performance from MD Magic, who posted his fifth consecutive win in this division.

The gelded son of Braggart has now won six of his seven career starts while bankrolling $42,300 for is owners Set The Pace Racing and trainer Nick Roland.

This week, MD Magic ($2.40) floated away from the gate in fifth from post five, as a host of others fired out for the front. Driver Dean Magee got MD Magic out and moving near the half mile pole, and he continued to advance, dropping into the pocket behind Dewey's Machine (Steve Wiseman) around the final turn and powering by the leader in the stretch to draw clear for a two length tally in 2:01.1.

The $11,000 Mares Open Pace went to Kiss On The Lips (Dean Magee) in another gutsy front-running performance for two in a row. Kiss On The Lips fired fast from her outside six post and was quickly in command, Bettor Lady (Steve Wiseman) mounted a strong first-over attack through the final half mile but Kiss On The Lips remained resilient and battled right down to the wire, keeping a head in front to stop the clock in 1:54.4 for her seventh win of the year.

Kiss On The Lips ($6.40) is an 8 year old daughter of Dontgetinmyway, and she is having the best season of her career, with 22 top-3 performances in 33 starts and $62,944 in the bank for owner Peg Hoffman and trainer Gerald Longo.

Burning Blaze (Steve Wiseman) delivered another impressive performance in the $8,500 Minnesota-Sired 2 Year Old Colts & Geldings pace with a 2 ½ length tally in 1:56.2 for his fifth win in seven starts for trainer Justin Anfinson, and Windmeupnwatchmego (Dean Magee) also dominated once again in the $8,500 filly division with a gate-to-wire score off of soft fractions in 1:59 for her fifth win in seven career starts for trainer Gordon Graham.

Dean Magee dominated the card with 6 wins, for his sixth consecutive Tuesday program with at least 4 wins. Steve Wiseman and James Yoder each completed driving doubles as well.

Live Racing continues 3 nights per week at Running Aces, with first post at 6:00 pm CDT on both Saturdays and Sundays, and first post at 7:00 pm CDT on Tuesdays. The program on Saturday, September 1 will feature a carryover of $29,853.38 in the 20 cent Jackpot Pick-5 wager.
