Monticello, NY - Monticello Raceway has just concluded its second week of harness racing after an extended COVID shutdown. It seems that everyone is getting their groove back together as driver Bruce Aldrich Jr. won the first 3 races on the card with Lucky Leonard (1:59.1 - $14.00) Noble Woody (1:57.3 - $4.90) and with Zone Blitz (1:56.3 - $2.90).

It started to look like a banner day for Aldrich but Mcgwire Sowers then went on a tear for his own driving triple with Ideal Candidate (1:57.1 $2.80) My Last Chance (1:55.4 - $5.40) and Coach Zuzek (1:57 - $2.60) in the last race of the day. Greg Merton also drove 2 winners on the afternoon.

With 2 weeks under their belt since the reopening Mcgwire Sowers has had 10 trips to the winner's circle with Bruce Aldrich right behind him with 7 wins in the 2 week span. Aldrich sits atop the leader board for the most wins for the year with 67, with Brandon Parker in second with 49 wins. Bo Sowers is leading dash winning trainers with 39 winners.

On the training side of the board this afternoon Bo Sowers enjoyed a training triple and Laura Perino had a training double
