Victor Kirby and Matthew Ivory’s Allmar Surprise ($7, Kirby) picked up her third straight win and ninth of the year Wednesday at Harrington Raceway with a 1:56 win in the $21,700 Junior Open Trot.
Trained by Kirby, the 4-year-old Angus Hall exhibited her usual awareness from the gate and was sent for the lead. She set all the fractions and held off a late charge from LT’s Best for the win.
