Leading driver, John MacDonald wins four on the Saturday night. Oh My Joepa (MacDonald) goes gate-to-wire and barely hangs on to take Vernon Downs harness racing feature on (July 15).

Owned, trained, and driven by John MacDonald, Oh My Joepa (Rock N Roll Heaven) would put up the fractions :26.0, :55.0, 1:23.1, 1:52.0. Oh My Joepa ($3.40) won for the third straight time but it wasn't easy as Golden Gun (Ed Waishes) came flying late but finished second by a neck. Apollo Seelster (Truman Gale) was third.

John MacDonald, who has 58 wins on the season first won with 2 year-old Manverick (American Ideal-Desirable Cindy). Manverick ($5.40) won in his first career start. MacDonald also won with Coopers Beach ($4.40) and Ring Leda ($5.70).

Vernon Downs returns to live action on Thursday starting at 6:45 p.m.
