HARRINGTON, Del. - Keith Pippi's Traverse Seelster ($3.40,
The 5-year-old gelding assumed command early from leader Awsome Valley, who was bidding for his fourth straight win, to an opening quarter mile of 28 seconds. "Traverse" strolled through fractions of 57.1 and 1:26.4 and opened up three lengths in the stretch for his seventh win of the year. Awsome Valley held second while Skyway Priss closed ground late for third. Trained by Gary Green, the winner pushed his seasonal bankroll to nearly $110,000.
Traverse Seelster set the all-aged track record for trotters earlier this year at Harrington with a dazzling 1:54.1 win on June 26.
Traverse Seelster's win Wednesday was one of three driving wins on the program for Wolfenden.
