Market Share wore down the leading Maven to win the $200,000 American National Aged Trot in a new track record time of 1:52.1 with Tim Tetrick in the sulky. Linda Toscano trains the 4-year-old Revenue S horse, who last won his $600,000 Breeders Crown test at Pocono Downs.

It was the 20th career victory for Market Share and gave Tetrick two American National crowns on the evening’s program.

Uncle Peter (David Miller) had taken the lead to the :28 first quarter before yielding to the speedy Mr Herbie (Brian Sears). Maven (Yannick Gingras) then came flying first up, taking control of the race at the :56.3 half. She continued to lead through the final turn a sMarket Share and Tetrick drew even with her. These two continued to battled through the stretch and Market Share then drew off in the final eighth of the mile to win by a length over the gutsy Maven. Mister Herbie finished third.

“He’s a nice little horse and he’s agreat money maker so you can’t beat that,” Tetrick said. “I took a chance coming out but it worked out. My horse is real handy, and Maven is a great filly and she’s not easy to get by, but myhorse is just awesome. I think he’s peaking at the right time.”

Market Share added the winner’s shareof $96,000 to his already hefty bankroll of $2,763,011.
