HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Weekend Atnannies made a step up in class at Buffalo Raceway but that didn't bother him one bit as he registered a solid 3/4 length win over Allstar Energy in the featured Class A-AA Handicapped Pace on Saturday night (March 6).
The move up the ladder was warranted as Weekend Atnannies won on February 13 by taking a Class B event by a neck in 1:56.3 in his last outing.
After relinquishing the lead for a brief moment early stage of the race to Allstar Energy, Weekend Atnannies (Kevin Cummings) retook the lead before the opening stanza and never looked back from there.
Setting splits of :28.2, :58.4 and 1:28.3 over the fast track, Weekend Atnannies didn't face any pressure down the stretch and easily strolled to the victory in 1:57. Allstar Energy (Ron Beback Jr.) settled for second while Falcon's Luke (Shawn McDonough) took the show position.
Owned by Rocco Stebbins and trained by Joe Skowyra, Weekend Atnannies (Western Paradise-Lacoste Gal) is a 6-year-old gelding that has now won two of three starts this season. The win upped his seasonal earnings to $8,572 and $113,611 lifetime.
Drew Monti finished the evening with three driving wins while Cummings and Shawn McDonough had two apiece. Gerry Sarama had a training double.
Racing will resume on Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. with 11 races on tap. There will be a $4,000 guaranteed pool in the Pick 5 starting in the second race.
