Man About Town - a 9-year-old Self Possessed gelding

Daniel Poliseno's Man About Town ($11.80, Tony Morgan) scored a mild upset in the $20,000 Open Trot at Harrington Raceway in 1:55.2. Trained by Tony Poliseno, the 9-year-old gelding was the recipient of a pocket trip behind harness racing favorite Allmar Surprise throughout fractions of 28, 57.1 and 1:26.2.

In the stretch, Man About Town edged clear of the favorite to win by a half-length. Cash On Delivery was third. Allmar Surprise had won her last two races.

The son of Self Possessed notched his 22nd career win and boosted his lifetime bankroll to more than $821,000.

Driver Tony Morgan continued to have the hot hand with four more wins, giving him 16 over the last three days. Harrington’s leading driver, Ross Wolfenden had three wins.

George Dennis and Victor Kirby each won two races.
