Pompano Beach, FL...June 24, 2015...My Revenuer and Mach Me Not scored impressive harness racing wins their respective "Winners Over" feature events at Pompano Park on Wednesday night (June 24).
 
My Revenuer kicked off the mid-week festivities by scoring a minor upset for Tom Sells in the $9,000 Winners Over event for the trotters, upsetting the 1 to 5 tote-board favorite, Dominum Deo in 1:55.4. Tug River Dylan, last in the quintet turning for home, rallied for third for Wally Ross, Jr. while Lugar and pacesetting Illusionsndreams completed the parade through the wire.
 
It was Illusionsndreams who took charge, carding panels of :28.3 and :58.2 before things began heating up on the backside.
 
With Dominum Deo on the move from the back of the pack, driver Sells was forced into a first-over journey from My Revenuer with that one pulling on even terms with Illusionsndreams through an official :28.2 third quarter--his about :27.4.
 
Turning for home, My Revenuer began edging clear and easily held off Dominum Deo in the final stages, scoring by 1 1/4 lengths.
 
In a post race interview, driver Sells said, "Ya know, when this trotter feels like it, he can turn on the engines pretty good...and he sure did tonight. He was very determined."
 
Owned and trained by Tom Petri, My Revenuer, a seven year-old son of Revenue S, won for the third time in 20 starts this year, good for $33,817 in bounty. Lifetime, he has 21 career wins and $167,592 in earnings to go along with a mark of 1:53.4 at Vernon Downs last season.
 
Third choice in the betting, My Revenuer paid $12.40 to his faithful.
 
The companion event for pacing wares was kind of a carbon copy of last weeks event as Mach Me Not, driven by Bruce Ranger, scored a repeat win--this time in 1:53.4 over stablemate Artful Impulse, again handled by Andy Santeramo. As in last week's event, Goldstar Rockette finished third. Keystone Christa and Lady Ideal completed that event.
 
When the Hummer's wings folded, Artful Impulse and Mach Me Not got into a bit of a fray around turn one with the latter taking charge right at the opening marker in :27.1.
 
Mach Me Not, a nine year-old daughter of Mach Three, continued to lead the parade through panels of :56.4 and 1:26.1 with Artful Impulse in the garden spot.
 
Turning for home, as she did last week, Mach Me Not began drifting wide allowing Artful Impulse plenty of real estate to close to her inside...but Mach Me Not was just too strong--her final panel of :27.3 good enough for a victory measuring just short of a length.
 
After the race, Ranger joked, "Well, we proved one thing...this mare care pace as fast going sideways as she can going forward! She's a game thing, that's for sure!"
 
Owned by the S S G Stables and trainer by Jim Mc Donald, Mach Me Not won for the third consecutive week--35th lifetime win--to send he seasonal earnings to $49,024. She's banked $345,046 career-wise to go along with her mark of 1:51.1 mark at Hoosier Park.
 
Mach Me Not, heavily favored at 2 to 5, paid $2.80 to win.
 
Another noteworthy performer on the Wednesday card was Gold Savage in the "Winners Over 2" trot.
 
This five year-old son of Keystone Savage, trained by Mark Friedman for the Polo Stables, got a picture perfect journey from Mickey Mc Nichol to score in a lifetime best 1:54.3.
 
With Pilgrims All In setting up a quick pace through panels of :27.1 and :56, Gold Savage nestled in second from his outside post, left the coziness of his pocket around the final turn and went on to score a win measuring almost six lengths over favored On The Tab (Bruce Ranger) with Skyway Pippen next. Pilgrims All In did hold on for fourth while American Superman, suffering a miscue prior to the start, picked up the minor award in the sextet.
 
As second choice in the betting at 3 to 2, Gold Savage paid $5.00 to win.
 
Racing continues on Saturday night with the season's final program of 10 races.
 
Post time is 7:30p.m.
