Columbus, MN - Hoo Nien A (Jacob Cutting) rallied from off the pace to take the $8,500 harness racing feature at Running Aces on Saturday afternoon (September 12).
Stuckey Dote (Darrell Wright) and Heza Real Diamond battled up front through a torrid opening half mile (:25.3, :54.4) while Jacob Cutting bided his time at the back of the pack with Hoo Nien A.
Parklane Jet (Dean Magee) launched a first-over attack down the backside and Cutting picked up the cover before rolling three-wide around the final turn with Hoo Nien A ($7.00) who surged to the front and drew away late to win by 4-1/2 lengths in 1:51.3.
Heza Real Diamond held second and Stuckey Dote was third.
The winner is an 8 year old gelding by Always A Virgin. He now has 22 career wins and $167,548 in the bank. Chris Scicluna is the winning owner/trainer.
The $11,500 Minnesota-Sired sophomore filly pace went to It's Pacific Time (Rick Magee, $2.10) who dominated in gate-to-wire fashion from post eight with a 1:56.4 mile for her ninth win of the season for owner John Hendricks and trainer Joel Mc Danel.
Huftalookatdatfany (Nick Roland) was second and Catchmeinadream (Jacob Cutting) was third.
The $6,900 sophomore colts & geldings pace went to Bunkerhill Phil (Braxten Boyd) in 1:58 for four wins in a row. The winner is a gelding by Vlos, owned and trained by Gene Miller.
Driver Jacob Cutting led the Saturday program with three winners - scoring a natural Hat-Trick in races 5,6 and 7. Rick Magee posted a double.
Live Racing continues at Running Aces through October 4, with action four days a week at 1:00 pm (CDT).
