LEBANON, OH. - Sweet Mr Pinetucky (Trace Tetrick) returned to the harness racing winner's circle for the second time in three weeks on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 21) at Miami Valley Raceway, winning the $25,000 Open Handicap Trot in 1:53.3 over Walter White (Jeremy Smith) and Trumpets (Ed Greeno Jr.).

The quick clocking, on a frigid 27 degree afternoon, equaled the winner's lifetime best and raised the 6-year-old's lifetime earnings over $230,000. He is owned by trainer Lester Raber in partnership with his breeder Floyd Raber.

Finalists were also determined in a pair of Claim To Fame series, each carrying $22,500 purses in their championship finals next Tuesday.

M E Radar Girl swept both preliminary legs to emerge as the money earning leader among the $12,500 claiming mares group. The remaining top nine earners were Smash, Don't Mach Mia, Galyns Gift, Crazy Bad K, Grant Me This, Sweet Western, Keystone Nikki and Grimalkin.

Blacklist Z Tam topped the earnings list among $8000 claiming horses and geldings, who competed in seven preliminary divisions to determine the final field. Others who secured spots are N Expense, Legal Transfer, Double Impact, Putnams Attack, Colossal, Totally Kissed, New Patrol and Beachboy Desire.
