The feature on the Tuesday night (Aug. 22) harness racing card at Running Aces was the $11,000 Open Handicap Trot, and the 4 Year old mare CW Raisinette picked up her fifth consecutive win in her first try at the top Open level.

Trainer/Driver Steve Wiseman got her away alertly from the rail position in the 8 horse field and secured the early pocket, then brushed to the lead at the 3/8 marker. From there CW Raisinette ($3.40) looked comfortable at every call, and benefitted from a breaking horse late in the stretch to hold on for the victory by a half-length in 1:57.4 to keep her win streak alive.

The sharp trotter is trained by part owner Kathie Plested-Wiseman who shares ownership with A Piece of The Action, LLC.

In the $13,000 2 Year old Minnesota-Sired Pace, Watchmeneighneigh ($3.60) scored his first lifetime win in 1:57.3 with Driver James Yoder aboard for trainer Robert Lems and owner Richard Davelaar. The impressive gelding is by Voracious Hanover.

Driver Steve Wiseman led on Tuesday night with another Hat-Trick, placing him 4 wins ahead of Nick Roland currently in the top driver standings.

The .20 cent Pick 5 Jackpot has now grown to $47,257.01 for this coming Saturday Night (Aug. 26).
