Veteran driver Steve Wiseman, who missed the first 5 nights of the season at Running Aces with a back injury, has been razor sharp since his return to the sulky, winning his first start back with his only drive on May 29th, then picking up at least one win every night since, including a double on June 4th, and now a very impressive four-bagger on the Tuesday night harness racing card.

The Tuesday night feature at running Aces Casino & Racetrack was the $11,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap pace, and Party Hangover Two came in to the race looking for her 4th straight win overall, and second straight locally. Sent off as the even money choice from post 8, Trainer-Driver Steve Wiseman sent her straight to the lead, then yielded to let Windsun T Bird (Tim Maier) take over past the 28.2 quarter, brushed 1st over quickly to retake past the 3/8 pole, and lead every step of the mile from there (through fractions of 57.4 and 1:26.1) including the last step to just hold off a late charge from the resilient Windsun T Bird, and a charging Flick A Fly (Rick Magee). It was her 6th win in 7 starts this year, and the white-hot 5 year old mare by Party At Artsplace paid $4.20 to win. She is owned by Kathy Plested, Barbara and Donald Arnstine and Stephen Chambers.

The 3 year old pacing filly Polar Vortex, by Rocknroll Hanover posted her first lifetime win, in just her 3rd lifetime start, pacing to a 1:58.2 win with driver Ryan Lems in the sulky for trainer Robert Lems and owners Alan & Cheryl Sandbulte, of Iowa.

Completing the four-bagger for Wiseman were wins with his trainees Gram Rules ($6.00) in 1:55.1, and Summons ($4.20) in 1:55.0 and Hot on The Pace ($9.20) in 1:56.4 for trainer Alexia Kehl.

The next card of live Harness Racing at Running Aces Casino & Racetrack will go to post on Saturday, June 11th at 6:00 pm CDT, with a carryover in the .50 cent Jackpot Pick-6 wager of $5,261.60
