Five Towns, a five-year-old gelding by Andover Hall captured the $17,500 Open Trot at Scioto Downs Friday.

The gelding is partially owned and trained by Kelly Goodwin of Fowlerville,Michigan with Deborah Spike-Pierce of Kentucky.

Ronnie Wrenn Jr.had the assignment, starting from post four. Wrenn and Five Towns took control early and set the fractions, to make it his race to win or lose. After an easy half of 58.2, it was catch me if you can for the rest of the field.

Five Towns held off a first over charge from Victory Is Coming and the pocket sitter, Baby Blaze.

Victory Is Coming was a steady closing second and Baby Blaze got the show spot. Only 2 and 1/2 lengths separated the entire field. Five Towns won by a half length in 1:55.3.

The excitement then carried over to the ninth race. Randy Tharps and Scootie Best Lou blew up the tote board. The five-year old mare trained by Ben Davis paid $97.40 to win. In turn getting a $690.56 return for the $.10 super high five.
 
That gave Ronnie Wrenn Jr. a hat trick on the Friday night card.
