Michael Casalino's Tough Mac ($3.80, Jon Roberts) was victorious in the $16,000 Open Trot Wednesday at Harrington Raceway in 1:55.3.
The Dylan Davis-trainee was sent immediately for the lead from post position three and assumed command from rail-riding Pocket Trip approaching the opening quarter-mile. Pocket trip soon faltered and went off stride, giving Six Gun Hall a pocket journey as Tough Mac strolled through the mile on top and held off a late charge from Powerful Charger for the win. Six Gun Hall finished third.
It was the seventh win of the year for Tough Mac, whose seasonal earnings surpassed $84,000. Roberts and Ross Wolfenden each had a driving double.
