Numeric Hanover won the record $358,175 Jugette 3-Year-Old Filly Pace by disqualification on Wednesday (September 17) at the Delaware, Ohio County Fairgrounds.

Odds On Charmaine, who finished first by a length, was disqualified and placed

ifth for interference with Remember When at the top of the stretch.

“It didn’t take any of the lustre off the victory,” said driver Dave Palone.

“The check won’t say she was placed the winner.”

As the gate unfolded Animated Art and driver Michel Lachance gained the early lead and led the field past the quarter in 28 seconds.

Just past the quarter Animated Art broke stride handing the lead to Numeric Hanover who set the pace through the remaining fractions of 58.2 and 1.26.3.

Remember When came first over before the half boxing Odds On Charmaine on the rail.

Coming off the final turn, Odds On Charmaine, driven by Tim Tetrick, forced her way out causing Remember When to check sideways.

Odds On Charmaine crossed the finish line in 1.53.4 with Numeric Hanover finishing second and Gorey Daze third.

Numeric Hanover ($5.60) is owned by John Deters and Harold Shelton Junior’s

Titans Racing Stable of Detroit, MI.

The Real Artist filly, purchased for $8000 has 11 wins in 25 starts and career earnings of $385,442.

Gorey Daze won a three-filly photo in the first elimination holding off long-shot Trust Me Ashley by a neck and post-time favourite Remember When by a ½ length in 1.54.

The winner, driven by Luc Ouellette and trained by Bill Robinson, grabbed the lead from post one and set all of the pace.

“We pushed off the gate. I saw that two (Remember When) and eight (Kissed By A Fool) took back and my filly was able to hold them,” said Ouellette, who drove the Robinson-trained Million Dollar Cam, to victory in the 2002 Little Brown Jug.

The Presidential Ball filly ($9.20) picked up her seventh win of the season in 23 starts.

The place filly, Trust Me Ashley paid a Jugette record $22.20. (However, 20 minutes later Heather’s Western finished second in the second elimination and paid a new place record of $22.40).

Numeric Hanover ($7.40), another Robinson-trained filly driven by Dave Palone, sprinted to the early lead to win the second elimination in 1.54.2 by one length over Heather’s Western and another length over Nells Bells.

“When Gordon’s Jin Ms took back at the start it set up the race for me,” said Palone, who was injured in a race accident on September 8 at the Red Mile In Lexington, Ky.

The Real Artist filly won last week’s $210,000 Nadia Lobell and has four straight victories.

Animated Art ($3) set a national season’s record of 1.53 to win the third elimination by 4¼ lengths over Jennie Fanetta and was another ½ length

head of Odds On Charmaine.

Like the first two elimination winners, Animated Art led from gate to wire for Michel Lachance.

“I had the best spot, the rail. We had soft fractions to the half and she was real strong at the end,” said Lachance, who drove Animated Art for trainer Noel Daley.

“She was very relaxed today. She has been nervous her last few starts.”
