Kurt Sugg has won over 4000 races in his career

Painesville, OH- Harness racing action kicked off at the Lake County Fair in Painesville, Ohio Tuesday with nine races, five of which were won by driver Kurt Sugg.

His wins included the $3,500 Forest "Pappy" Cone Memorial, a Signature Series Trot, and the richest event of the day, the $10,100 three-year-old filly trot. Earlier this month, Sugg went over the 4,000 career win mark.

In the Cone Memorial, Sugg steered his trainee Star Chip, owned by Rebecca Sugg, to an easy 2:02 win, her eighth of the year. The eight-year-old gelded son of Chip Chip Hooray- Star Sneakers has now banked just under $340,000 in his career. It was his second Signature Series win of the year. Riverdancing Diva was second and Rockinthepines finished third.

In the sophomore filly trot, trainer Marty Wollam called on Sugg to drive Ladycallstheshots, a daughter of Uncle Peter from the SJ's Caviar mare Caviar For The Lady. She cruised to a 2:04.2 win, her first this year. She is owned and was bred by Acadia Farms of Canfield, Ohio. D J Miracle finished second, with And Up We Go taking home show money.

Sugg also easily took the opener for two-year-old pacing fillies with Pat Holden's Miss Tressa, who was an impressive 2:01.3 winner for trainer Wollam. He also won the second division of the freshman filly pace, this time piloting Don Hoovler, Jeery Sommers and Mike Medors' Yankee Cruiser filly Medoland Carmen to a 2:04.3 win. To wrap things up, in the nightcap, Sugg won the maiden trot in 2:07with two-year-old trotting gelding K J Chuck. Scott Woogen owns the winner who is trained by Steve Cross.
