Safe From Terror scored her second straight win in Miami Valley's Friday (March 11) $20,000 harness racing mares Open, besting bridesmaid Native Dream (John DeLong) for the second straight week with Aqua Artist (Trace Tetrick) holding on for third after showing the way to the first quarter pole in a quick :26.3.

Driver Chris Page elected to move the winner from fourth to the lead during the second quarter, with the half reached in :55.2. Never seriously challenged in the payoff half-mile, Safe From Terror tacked on :28.1 and :28.4 closing panels to complete her mission.

It was the 15th career win for the four-year-old daughter of Western Terror, who has banked $513,862 in her first forty starts. Jim Arledge Jr. trains the triumphant lass for Winchester Baye Acres.

Earlier on the card, a pair of first leg divisions of the Herb Coven Jr. Memorial Series were contested for distaffers who were non-winners of four races or $30,000 lifetime. Jackie's Rocket (Brady Galliers) copped the first split by beating Powered By Pink (Ken Holliday) and ER Lila (LeWayne Miller) in 1:54.1. Swinging Cami (Jeremy Smith) sped to a 1:53.2 victory in the second division, topping Gray Shadow (Kyle Ater) and Miss Princess Leah (Chris Page).
