Count On Cody crossed the finish line as the fastest sophomore trotting colt ever at Northfield Park when he won the $6,200 Summit County Fair Stakes in 1:55.2 on Saturday (July 28).

The former 1:55.3 three year-old trotting record was held by Buckeye Boss (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) from 2017.

Acadia Farms of Canfield, Ohio and G&B Racing of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania own Count On Cody. Ohio Harness Racing Hall of Famer Marty Wollam is his conditioner and Kurt Sugg was in the sulky for the winning drive.

Count On Cody (Full Count-Caviar Forthe Lady-S J's Caviar) started from post five. He left from the gate sat the pocket through :27.2 and :57 opening fractions. Just past the half Count On Cody came to the outside, took the lead and never looked back. He rolled through final fractions of 1:26.1 and 1:55.2, besting his competition by 1 ¼-lengths.

Count On Cody now has two wins in three starts this year. Saturday's victory represents his fourth career score and bolstered his bankroll to $136,570. He was heavily favored and returned $5.80 to win.
