There might have been some concern about Miss Marie Lavoux navigating Hawthorne’s one-mile track prior to Wednesday’s (August 17) 10th race, but she dispelled any doubts with what turned out to be an easy victory.
She shipped in here riding a three-race win streak, all at Maywood, and easily extended that streak to four.
Relatively ignored early in the wagering, ALL the late money came in on Miss Marie Lavoux and she responded with a sharp victory. She provided driver Tony Morgan with his fourth victory of the evening.
Leased by Jill and Vincent Affrunti and trained by Vincent Affrunti, Miss Marie Lavoux paced the mile in 1.55, with splits of 27.4 seconds, 57.2s, and 1.27.1, leading from the middle of the backstretch.
She paid $4.60 for the win.
Not to be overlooked in the Berwyn Pacing Final next week, however, is Andy Miller Stable Inc’s Lady’s Future.
Trained by Julie Miller with Andy in the bike, this mare might have had to settle for second place in this race but she was chasing a fairly lackluster pace.
She had been victorious in a division of the Berwyn Pacing Series last week.
With the likelihood of a quicker, and probably more hotly contested pace in the final, she just might be able to turn the tables in the final.
