Peter Venturini and Peter Venturini III and harness racing trainer Brian Malone's Smart Rokker ($9, Tony Morgan) was a 1:52 winner in the $16,000 Open Pace Monday at Harrington Raceway.

Bandolito (Daryl Bier) battled Bad Boy Matt for the early lead before the former made the lead in 27.1 under pressure from Vapour N (Pat Berry), who eventually cleared at the half-mile in an action packed 54.2. Special T Rocks (Ross Wolfenden) mounted a first-over attack with Smart Rokker (Rocknroll Hanover) perched perfectly second-over before tipping three-wide and prevailing in 1:52. Special T Rocks held second gamely while Sparky Mark, whose three-race win streak was snapped, finished third.

George and Tina Dennis' Allstar Preview (George Dennis, $31.20) sprang an upset in 1:54.2 in the sub-featured $12,500 Open. Trained by his co-owner/driver, it was his second straight win.

Morgan had four winners on the program, while Dennis had three. Victor Kirby and Allan Davis had a double.
