HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Wheels A Turning was the lone harness racing mare in Buffalo Raceway's $12,000 Open Trot on Wednesday night (March 20) and she was way too much for the boys to handle as she scored a 1-1/4 length victory over Southern Palms in 1:57.4 over the fast track.
 
The win was the third straight in as many tries for Wheels A Turning ($5.40) since arriving from The Meadows in late February.
 
Drafting behind the fraction setting Southern Palms (Jim Morrill Jr.) who went splits of :28.3, :59.1 and 1:28.4, Wheels A Turning (Shawn Gray) kicked her into high gear down the stretch and had no issues to cruising to the finish line in front. Southern Palms held on for second place with Are You In (Kevin Cummings) taking third.
 
Co-owned by the Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, it was the third win in six appearances for Wheels A Turning (Mr Cantab-Free Wheeling). The 5-year-old mare, trained by James Clouser Jr., has now earned $14,190 in 2019 and $169,592 lifetime.
 
You Mach Me Crazy (Gray) won the battle and then the war in the $10,500 Class A Open Handicap Pace for the filly and mares in a seasonal best 1:55.4.
 
In the tussle for early command, You Mach Me Crazy managed to subdue the leave attempts by Little Joke and HP Sissy. Showing the way on the front end with a :58.4 opening half, You Mach Me Crazy ($4.20) pulled away down the stretch thanks to a :28.2 last frame to post the 2-1/4 length win. Little Joke (Shawn McDonough) was the runner up while Kaitlyn Rae (Drew Monti) arrived in time for the show position.
 
William Emmons is the owner You Mach Me Crazy (Mach Three-Lady Terror). The 6-year-old mare, trained by Clouser Jr., has now registered five wins in nine appearance, boosting her bankroll to $28,195 this year and $326,675 lifetime.
 
Making her Buffalo Raceway debut, Majestic Kat (Billy Davis Jr.) went from last to first to take the upset win in the $10,000 Class A-AA Handicap Trot in 1:59.0.
 
With Time Will Tell All showing the way until the three-quarter marker, Majestic Kat ($18.20) started her slow and steady climb towards the top and eventually exploded past the field in the lane. Empire Earl N (Ray Fisher Jr.) and Call My Broker (Cummings) finished in a dead heat for second, a length behind Majestic Kat.
 
Co-owned by the Vogel & Wags Nags Stable, Jack Rice and Pine Hill Racing, Majestic Kat (Majestic Son-Order By Matilda) is a 5-year-old mare who is trained by Maria Rice. The victory jacked her seasonal winnings to $17,460 and to $179,051 in her career.
 
Cummings and Gray finished the evening with four winners each in the bike while Fisher Jr. had a double. Clouser had three training wins with Misty Carey getting two.
 
Racing will continue on Saturday evening at 6 p.m. with a 13-race card set.
