CUMBERLAND, ME - Throughout a harness racing career that has spanned nearly five decades, Scott Ehrlich finds himself back where it all started: behind the microphone calling the action in Southern Maine at First Tracks Cumberland. Tapped as the new voice of First Tracks Cumberland, the self-taught handicapper and racing enthusiast said, "Things are 'looking up' when I am looking down from high atop the grandstand. It's where I have always loved to be." Somewhat of a familiar tone around the state of Maine, Ehrlich has been the back-up announcer at the popular Fryeburg Fair for the last ten years. But Ehrlich is no stranger to the announcer's booth having been the primary race caller over the years at Cal Expo, Balmoral and Maywood. "Much of my early success I owe to Phil Langley, who advocated for me with Billy Johnston and got me into his tracks to announce full time," Ehrlich remembers fondly. "I grew up in Chicago so it was a great honor work at these prestigious raceways." He has also provided backup at tracks throughout the Northeast and Midwest. It was at Quad City Downs where he got his first big break, calling those races from the late 80s to the mid-90s. The knowledgeable and affable Ehrlich will also provide live pre-race analysis as well as racing recap publicity for this new era in Maine harness competition. While Scott is looking forward to his role as the on-air handicapper, he exclaims that he is no 'average Joe,' "I like to provide insight that you won't see in the program...trip notes, time adjustments, etc." "From me, you won't see the generic stuff. Not only will you get my picks, but you get why." Ehrlich calls upon his wide range of experiences when working in the industry. Not only are his tip-sheets sought after, but in some instances he has outfitted the horses that he picks! "I realized that a niche needed to be filled so I started and now am proud to be in my fifth year as owner/operator of Expo Tack shop, serving horsemen and women with horse equipment on the backstretch of Cal Expo," stated Ehrlich. n addition, he also owns a few horses. Scott says that, "Since I watch/called what seems like a million races, you get to know what each horse likes/dislikes. Additionally, you become well aware of the trainers and their abilities, not to mention the drivers, as well as little things like current race-bikes, to not so current." "And when a horse I see might be racing for a low percentage trainer, and/or driver, and perhaps on a smaller track that doesn't fit their style, that's when I'll buy or claim a horse, who almost assuredly is a closer. You'll never see me acquire a horse from a top stable that uses a high percentage driver. What advantage is that? I've always tried to buy them fairly cheap, and turn them into something good. I'm lucky that it has happened a few times." So what else does a guy do that wears several hats in an industry that is spread out from coast-to-coast? "Time with family of course," Ehrlich adds. "When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wife Lisa of 25 years, my three children and two grandchildren."

Doubleontherocks and Its Pointless, leaders in their respective harness racing divisions, look to add to their impressive resumes in a pair of California Sire Stakes that headline the Sunday night menu at Cal Expo. There will be 12 races presented under the Watch and Wager LLC banner and the program will get underway at 4:55 p.m. The Sire Stakes for the 4-year-old colts and geldings will be decided as a non-betting race prior to the regular card. Doubleontherocks has accounted for two of three Sire Stakes held for the sophomore pacing fillies with Rockin The Dragon prevailing in the other. The former is a Lettherockbegin homebred who carries the banner of Nikki Hudson with husband Luke Plano reining and training, while Rock The Dragon is owned and was bred by Mark Anderson with Gordie Graham training and will once again have Jake Cutting doing the honors. Doubleontherocks has been able to work out pocket journeys in her February 20 and March 20 stakes scores, on both occasions coming away at the end from Rockin The Dragon. In the March 6 stakes gathering, it was Rockin The Dragon and Cutting who got the two-hole trip, and she streaked away in the late stages to prevail over her arch-rival by four lengths that night. Rounding out the cast are a pair of Bob Johnson trainees in Cookiesncream and Shewentthataway and the Marcos Rios-conditioned Witch Hunter. Meanwhile, Its Pointless has been untouchable when doing his work versus his 4-year-old peers in the two big-money get-togethers for that group. The Kent's On Nuke homebred races for Mark Anderson, hails from the Gordie Graham barn and will again have Tony Kerwood giving directions. Taking him on are White Knuckle Ride, Good To Be Glad and Itsonlymakebelieve. Surprisingly Sweet, Part Time on to new pastures Owner Scott Ehrlich has given us an update on two of his popular performers, as Surprisingly Sweet is about to have her first baby and Part Time has retired to Minnesota to live out his days in comfort. Surprisingly Sweet, who captured some big races over this layout, is due to drop a filly or colt by Wind Me Up any day now, and Scott has names for either scenario. "If it's a filly, I have already had her name approved by the USTA and it would be Secreharriet, named after my mom. "If it turns out to be a boy, he'll be named Farrington after my harness hero and mentor Bob Farrington." As for Part Time, who is best remembered around these parts for capturing an Open Pace over current kingpin Allmyx'sliventexas, he had a 2020 that would make for a great soap opera storyline. "It started last July at Running Aces when he overheated badly during a race," Ehrlich recalled. "And he was pulled up near the wire while wanting to fall down. Thanks to the combined heroics of outrider Tyler Wiseman, his driver Mooney Svendsen, the starter John Betts and his wife Sandy, they were able to get him safely to the paddock." It was just 10 days later that Part Time was unable to swallow his feed and was having trouble breathing, which sent him to the clinic and an emergency tracheotomy. Part Time was eventually returned to California to prepare for this Cal Expo meet, but was unable to recreate his previous success here. "After talking to his trainer Kathie Plested, as well as his drivers Gerry Longo and Mooney Svendsen who both said he had no kick and East Coast vet John Kokinos," Ehrich explained. "I made the decision to retire him to his forever home in Minnesota." Part Time was claimed for $4,000 at Pompano Park and banked nearly $45,000 for Ehrlich while going through his paces for Plested and the late Steve Wiseman. "He deserves the retirement," Scott added.

California Rock, a winner of five of his seven starts at the harness racing meet, looms the overwhelming favorite in Friday night's featured $9,700 Robert Gordon Pace at Cal Expo Harness. The main event is named for the noted driver/trainer and track executive who passed away at the age of 65 in 2006. A 13-race card is on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post set for 5:50 p.m. There will also be an Open Pace featuring a full field and a mile and one-half Open Trot headed by Its a Horse. California Rock is a now 4-year-old son of Rockin Image who competes for Schwartz, Wilkinson, Axelrod and O'Neill with Junior Wilkinson the conditioner and Luke Plano at the controls. In last week's Robert Gordon Prep, he proved a punctual 4-5 favorite over the track labelled "good" as he was used to the lead past the quarter and took control of things from that point, reporting to the wire with four lengths to spare. Taking him on Friday are Rue Hanover with Chip Lackey; Lickcreek Speedway, James Kennedy; Cenalta Dragster, Mooney Svendsen; Explainotcomplain with Nick Roland; and Platinum Time, who leaves from the outside slot with Steve Wiseman at the helm. There are two wagers offered each night with a reduced 16 percent takeout rate - the 20-cent Pick 5 and the 20-cent Pick 4. The Pick 4 will now feature a $40,000-guaranteed gross pool on Saturdays and a $30,000 guarantee on Fridays. Part Time turns into overtime Part Time came from left field both literally and figuratively when he flew home with veteran Gerry Longo to post a $45 upset in last week's Open Pace. He goes about his business for owner Scott Ehrlich and trainer Kathie Plested. "Back in 2015, I would always watch the races from one of my old stomping grounds, Balmoral Park, and every week, Part Time would be closing fastest of all," Ehrlich noted. "So, I put him in my virtual stable so I could follow him, which included Hawthorne, where he would also close well. Since I love to own closers, I wanted to have him for myself, but he was never in a claiming race. "When I did check into purchasing him privately, I was told the owner, who was also the breeder, wouldn't sell. As a result, the horse would be forced to move up in class, which resulted in his being overmatched a good amount of the time." Fast forward to early January of 2019, where Part Time shows up in a $4,000 claimer at Pompano. "Okay, why, after all these years, is he in the lowest claimer he can be?" Scott mused. "He finished third, and the next week he's in for a $5,000 tag, so we didn't claim him. The following week, he's back in for $4,000, and we did." In May the decision was made to send him from Hoosier Park to Running Aces, into the Kathie Plested/Steve Wiseman stable. After a well-deserved rest and a change of scenery, he became the closer that had caught Ehrlich's eye a few years earlier, included three wins where he dramatically came from last over that five-eighths mile oval with a stretch that isn't that long "With Cal Expo on the horizon, Steve suggested I not race him the last three weeks of Running Aces, for two reasons," Scott explained. "First, we heard he was going to get claimed and second, Steve wanted me to not only see this horse on the mile track where we all knew he'd excel, but he also wanted me to get to know him, as Part Time is a very sweet animal. "And now, I'm lucky enough have a horse who has won the Open. I can't be thankful enough to Kathie, Steve, and their solid crew of dedicated hard workers." By Mark Ratzky, for Cal Expo Harness  

Shark Festival has rattled off back-to-back impressive harness racing victories here at Cal Expo for Medinah Racing and Scott Ehrlich, with Kathie Plested and Steve Wiseman taking care of business on the training and driving end. "Medinah Racing is the partnership of George McChrystal and Mark Kremen," related Ehrlich. "We're all Chicago born and raised guys who met up at the Chicago harness tracks. For me and George, it was in the early 80s, which also included Fairmount Park." After a couple of needed efforts to start off the meet, Shark Festival has been all Jaws as she has done the stalk-and-pounce to perfection for Wiseman while working her way closer to the $100,000 mark in career earnings. "George and I watch races from everywhere in hopes of finding a diamond in the rough," Scott explained. "One of the tracks George was watching was Century Downs in Alberta. What caught his eye was her breeding, her 'look of a real horse', her spurts of talent and that she was using an older race bike. "He called me one day asking me to watch the replays of her most recent races. After I did, we felt if he we could obtain her and get her into the Wiseman stable and their program, that between Steve and Kathie and their fine crew, that would be a good fit. "Since we've gotten her, especially here at Cal Expo, she's gained quite a bit of weight and really looks the part. And from that has come two straight wins. We know she gets her toughest test stepping up to the filly and mare Open this week, but she did win the filly and mare Open at Century over some quality mares and did it handily in first-over fashion." Ehrlich added, "We have high hopes for her." So far, so good. Open Trot brings out Silverlode, Flameon A $5,500 Open Trot that finds Silverlode and Flameon continuing their rivalry and a $6,000 Filly and Mare Open Pace that has lured some very sharp distaffers headline Saturday night's program at Cal Expo. There will be 12 races on the Watch and Wager LLC card with first post set for 6:10 p.m. In addition to the two Opens, there will be an elimination heat for next week's final of the Robert Staats Series. The Open Trot will go as the third race on the evening with Silverlode doing his work from the assigned outside post in the field of five, while arch-rival Flameon departs from just to his inside. Zoraze, Windsun Galaxe and Winsom Kelly complete the cast. Silverlode and Flameon have met three times at this meeting, with the former capturing the first and third meetings which were contested over off tracks, while Flameon prevailed in between those two races on a fast track. Silverlode is a 7-year-old homebred daughter of British Sterling and the Website mare Charlotte's Web who is owned by Desomer Stables, takes her lessons from Vickie Desomer and will have Steve Wiseman giving directions after Luke Plano did the honors in the first three outings at this session. Flameon is 6-year-old son of Angus Hall who carries the banner of Mark Anderson with Gordie Graham the conditioner and Chip Lackey handling the lines. He is looking for his 11th win on the year from 21 trips to the post and will be drawn inside Silverlode for the first time at the meeting. The Filly and Mare Open brings out a solid field of eight with Strings, Shark Festival, Directing Traffic and Stable Eyes among the major players in what shapes up as a very interesting contest.

When this most recent weekend of two nights of harness racing  at Cal Expo was completed, horses owned all or in part by Scott Ehrlich had wrapped up their second triple in less than a month. Back on December 12 and 13, the Steve Wiseman trained charges from the Ehrlich stable that were victorious were Northern Stormont (Scott owns a third), Surprisingly Sweet (owned by Scott and wife Lisa), and Put To The Test. This past weekend, add Ideal Smile (Scott and Lisa) to the list, and take out the unlucky Put To The Test, who arguably most likely would have won had he not been blocked until late, then flew to be second. Shining most recently from their small stable is the smallest of them all, Surprisingly Sweet, or Sweet, as she is affectionately known. The 8-year-old mare comes off a romping first-over five-length victory in 1:52 4/5 versus all boys in the Open lll this past Saturday. How Scott acquired her, and what he has done to keep her, have made for a nice love story that extends not only to humans, but to other equines. In the fall of 2013, my family and I made our annual trip to New England, noted Scott. Mike Eaton and his wife, Belinda, who I met when through a mutual friend when they visited Cal Expo in 2011, invited us to his farm to jog some horses. I got to jog Ideal Smile, and expressed to Mike my fondness for him, which I acquired when I saw him race at Cal Expo for Mike in 2012. Fast-forward about a month later when the mutual friend calls me and tells me Mike likes a horse (Surprisingly Sweet) he has in at Plainridge Racecourse, but only if he can get some pace in the race because she drew post eight. I download the program and determine theres no pace in the race, so I didnt bet. Of course she wins, while three-wide most of the last half, circling the field at 11-1. Fast forward another month when Mike calls me. The other owner (Bob Mc Hugh) of Smile didnt want to pay the cost of wintering him during the five month off time, so Mike wanted to know if I was interested, which I was. He also mentioned he had this mare named Surprisingly Sweet, also co-owned by Mc Hugh, that he didnt want to winter. I had completely forgotten about her, and told Mike Id review her races on video, and call him the next day. When I saw the race where she circled the field, the light bulb went off on who she was and how great she closed. Combine that race with very similar closes in races before that, along with the fact that I love closers, plus shed now be on the mile track at Cal Expo, and it was a no-brainer to include her, thus we agreed to throw her in to the deal. The move by the Ehrlichs has certainly paid off as their little girl has raced 65 of her next 70 starts for them, recording 17 wins, 16 seconds, and 5 thirds, with earning in excess of $50,000. This past summer, however, something happened that they didnt expect. She got claimed, Scott related. Shes an Indiana bred, and I sent her to Hoosier Park with Rick Plano, who did well with her, and also, given the racing style at Hoosier, changed her (and Put To The Test) from being a one-move closer into a two-move closer. When they announced she was being claimed, my heart sank. Not so much because of my feelings for her, but because Kathie Wiseman and Sweet have a love affair with each other. Perry Smith claimed her and put her right back in for the same $5,000 tag. There was another claim on her that night, but we won the shake. In her next race, which was the same class, I put her in for $6,000 instead of $5,000. Sure enough, she got claimed again. I figured for sure Id never have her again. As luck would have it, she was now being trained by Walter Haynes Jr. Junior and I have good history with each other, as he drove and won with horses I had at Balmoral, The Red Mile, and Thunder Ridge. I called him and told him how much she meant to my family, and my trainers wife, Kathie, and that Id be very interested to buy her back after a series at Hoosier. He suggested I call one of the owners, Brian Carsey. I did, and explained to Brian how much she meant to us. Brian immediately said we could buy her back after the series was over. I cant tell you how grateful I was that Brian was so accommodating. He showed a lot of class, especially about how much she meant to my family, and that means a ton to me. As mentioned earlier, Sweet has two love affairs going. Kathie Wiseman and Sweet are crazy about each other, Ehrlich noted. Theres no doubt about two things. One, that Steve Wiseman knows exactly what Sweet needs, training wise. And two, care and love wise, theres no doubt that Kathie makes Sweet a very happy girl. But theres also another cog to this wheel, his name is Jimmy Shin, a 12-year-old trotter also trained by Wiseman. Steve calls me one day in early April of 2014 and asks me to call Mike Eaton to ask how Sweet and Jimmy got along. Steve had just claimed Jimmy, who at one time was also trained by Eaton. I asked why. He informed me that when he turned out Jimmy in their paddock ring, that hed just stand right in front of her stall, as they stared at each other, while Sweet went crazy, squealing and nickering. Then when he put her in the ring, shed stare at him and Jimmy would go just as crazy from his stall. I called Eaton and barely got out the words when you had Sweet and Jimmy, and he interrupts and say, they were totally crazy about each other, inseparable. Now think about this! Theyre 3,000 miles away from where they met, plus they havent seen one another for roughly six months. Yet they instantly knew each other! It should come as no surprise when they shipped to and from Running Aces, that Kathie Wiseman, to keep them busy, had them next to each other on the transporting, not to mention side by side in their stalls at the two tracks. Words cant express how grateful we are of the fantastic job Steve, Kathie and their daughter Tyler, and their crew do with the horses they take care of. Were very lucky, finished Scott. This has turned out to be a sweet story all the way around. Party Hangover Two, Secret Alibi do battle Party Hangover Two, who finished up 2015 with nine wins from her 15 trips to the post; and Secret Alibi, who has the conditioning edge over her main rival, get the marquee treatment in Saturday nights featured $5,000 Open II Pace for fillies and mares. The main event will go as the fifth on the 13-race Watch and Wager LLC card with a first post of 6:10 p.m. The trotting and pacing action will continue with a Sunday evening program. Party Hangover Two is a 5-year-old daughter of Party At Artsplace who is owned by Kathleen Plested and is reined and trained by Steve Wiseman. She comes into her 2016 debut with $110,000 in her account and a 1:52 4/5 mark that was established over this layout last season. The bay mare was last seen in evening action on December 12, digging in when it counted for Wiseman to post a half-length decision under Open I Distaff conditions. She should be right there no matter how things shake out early in this affair while leaving from the assigned outside slot in the field of six. Secret Alibi is a 7-year-old daughter of The Panderosa who is owned by Heather Matthews with Luke Plano doing the driving and training. She accounted for an Open III filly-mare event on December 26 and was third versus males in her most recent trip to the post. Secret Alibi is looking to add to a $129,000 bankroll and has a 1:52 2/5 career mark that she set as a sophomore. She figures to be up-close-and-personal from the outset for Plano with this group. Completing the field are Part Time Lady, who gives the Wiseman barn two looks at the outcome; Place at the Beach for Gerry Longo; La Madawna De Rosa from the Leon Smith shedrow; and the Junior Wilkinson-trained Ladys Art, who leaves from the cozy rail with Chip Lackey giving directions.

Ideal Smile is one of the hottest horses on the grounds, having rattled off three straight 1:54 and change victories for owners Scott and Lisa Ehrlich and driver/trainer Steve Wiseman. Two of those decisions have come from a stalking position, while last week’s tally was accomplished in coast-to-coast fashion without an anxious moment as the son of American Ideal made 6-5 look like a belated Xmas gift. He’s back in action Saturday night with a second-tier starting position. Scott Ehrlich related, “Ideal Smile caught my eye in the early part of last year here  when he showed very good speed on the front-end for Mike Eaton, carrying it well most of the time. This impressed me because I feel that the bias at Cal Expo almost always favors closers.  “Fast-forward to last October when Mike invited my family to his farm to jog some horses when we made a trip to New England. By luck, I got to jog Smile and I liked the way he went.  Mike said he as for sale, but that was about the end of it, or so I thought.  “About a month later, Mike called me and said he was for sale as part of a package deal with Surprisingly Sweet.  By pure luck, I had watched a race of hers and loved the way she closed.  Then after watching more of her previous races, she fit the type of horse I love and we made the deal. “Since getting them, both of them have required some time to get built up to where they should be physically/weight wise, especially Smile. Steve and Kathie Wiseman, and their fine crew, including Smile’s great Caretaker, Mike Fowler, have done an outstanding job of getting them to where we want them to be.  And while they're much closer, they aren't there yet, which would lead you to hopefully believe that better things are yet to come.”  SATURDAY NIGHT WILL FEATURE FREE ADMISSION AFTER 4 P.M. WITH $1 BEER, COFFEE, HOT DOGS AND SODA. HANDICAPPER DAVE BROWER WILL ALSO BE LIVE ON SITE BOTH FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, SO BE SURE TO STOP BY THE SIMULCAST CENTER AND SAY HELLO. Race honors memory of Dr. Robert Goodbary Saturday’s night’s 11th race at Cal Expo is named for Dr. Robert Franklin Goodbary, DVM, who passed away on December 28, at his ranch in Clements, California.  In his final days he was surrounded by family and friends at home, where he candidly would say he was “Just chuggin’ along”.  Known to everyone as Doc, he was born August 3, 1934 in Chandler, Oklahoma to Omer “Snip” and Olga Mae Goodbary. His father worked as a ferrier, moving his family from Oklahoma to Yuba City, California in the 1940’s.  His mother was a homemaker.  Doc Goodbary graduated from Yuba City High School in 1952.  While in high school, he worked as the only paperboy who delivered the San Francisco Examiner and San Francisco Chronicle to Yuba City and Marysville.  He also worked for Dr. Sam Fisher as a kennel boy, and later worked with larger animals, primarily cows.  After graduating from high school, he attended college at Michigan State and graduated in 1958 with a Doctorate in Veterinarian Medicine.  This is where he met Noel Lassen, whom he married and they had two sons, David and Richard Goodbary. During his summers off from college, he came back home to work at the Del Monte Cannery as the Floor Foreman, overseeing about 35 employees.    After graduating from college, Doc moved back to California, where he began his career as a Professor at the University of California-Davis, then opened a small animal Veterinarian Clinic. He also owned and operated the Buena Mora Ranch in Pleasanton and later a ranch in Clements. Doc Goodbary worked as the Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse Race Track Veterinarian in Northern and Southern California racetracks, operating on and treating many a racehorse in his day. In Northern California, he worked many years at Bay Meadows, Golden Gate Fields and Tanforan racetracks, as well as the Northern California Fairground circuit that included Cal Expo, Stockton, Pleasanton, Santa Rosa and Fresno.  In Southern California, he worked many years at the Los Alamitos and Santa Anita racetracks.  Doc Goodbary enjoyed watching football, gardening (at home and even at the racetrack), playing cards and winning, loved dancing and making his annual treks to Sayulita, Mexico to vacation with family and friends. He liked being in charge and doing it his way, the right way.  No one was ever a stranger to him. He was greatly respected, loved and adored by family, friends and colleagues who knew him. They all were considered family. Doc Goodbary  is survived by his wife, Jeannette Goodbary of Clements; his son, David Goodbary of St. Louis, Missouri; his brother and sister-in-law, George and Ginger Goodbary of Marysville, California; and grandchildren, Elizabeth, Connor, Dylan, Brooke, Ryan, Amanda, Alex and Anthony; and many nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, “Snip” and Olga Mae Goodbary; his two sisters, Mary Ann Yerzy and Donna Sue Prevatt; his son, Richard Goodbary; and special friend, Dorothy Stringer, who was his mother-in-law.

Since no one correctly selected all five winners in the Thursday night (January 17)harness racing Pick-5, a carryover of $9,279.30 will be added into the Friday night (January 18) pool.

His "mark" is 1:50 and on this night, Split Ticket reminded everyone why. Closing night conditioned pacers, racing for a purse of $6,000, were featured at Cal Expo on a HOT Saturday night (June 16), on which Split Ticket won for the 39th time in his harness racing career.

His harness racing owners had to be deliriously happy when their beloved Los Angeles Kings met up with Lord Stanley on Monday night (June 11), so why not end the week with their Putoneonnetformom having his "Cup" runneth over as well.

He started five slots away from his closest rival, then had to fight Mother-Nature, but Albion was still able to get back on the winning track. Winners-Over pacers, racing for a purse of $6,800, were featured at Cal Expo on very windy Saturday night (June 9), on which Albion recorded his 12th win of the year thus putting him in a second-place tie nationally for most wins for all harness racing horses on the season.

Getting the lead in easier fashion than his last three harness racing outings easily was the key to Putoneonnetformom winning for the 23rd time in his career.

Her post-position advantage turned out to make the difference, but no matter how you look at it, Haggin Oaks is one tough harness racing cookie. Winners-Over pacers, racing for a purse of $6,800, were featured at Cal Expo on Saturday night (June 2), on which Haggin Oaks, the lone lady in the race, won for the 25th time in her fine career.

It is said that trotters get better with age, which is backed by the 11 year-old Alpine Hawk who now has 10 wins on the year and 50 in his harness racing career.

Harness racing three year-olds, on both the trot & pace, were featured at Cal Expo on Saturday night in two $12,000 California Sires Stakes, on which Rite After Disbeer & Ra Ra Steven were the best again.

Harness racing sophomore fillies, on both gaits, were featured at Cal Expo on Friday night (May 25) in a pair of season ending $12,000 California Sires Stakes, on which Diva Las Vegas & Silverlode left no doubt.

Facing much easier in his second start off a 4-1/2 month layoff, combined with a style of harness racing he likes, saw Doc's Zilla upset. Conditioned pacers, racing for a purse of $5,000, were co-featured at Cal Expo on Saturday night (May 19) in the Dennis Giles Memorial, on which Doc's Zilla made every call a winning one.
