Rich Lombardo, David Kryway, Eric Good and Josh Green’s Jack’s Legend N ($4.60, Pat Berry) notched his 18th career win Monday in the featured $20,000 Open Pace at Harrington Raceway.
The 7-year-old Bettor’s Delight gelding grinded away in first-over position at pacesetter Goldberg and gained the lead at the top of the stretch before holding off JJ Flynn, who closed gamely in the passing lane, for a narrow win. Penzance Hanover was third. The winner was trained by co-owner Green, who had 3 wins on the card, including Machaholic and ($54.80) and American Admiral ($6.20).
It was the second start of the season for Jack’s Legend N, who banked $101,528 in an abbreviated 2020 campaign (16 starts). It was one of three wins on the card for Pat Berry, who joined Tony Morgan and Art Stafford Jr. with a driving triple.
Peter Paul Venturini’s Beach Blanket Book ($2.10, Morgan) was a popular winner in achieving his 3rd win in his last 4 starts and improved to 2-for-2 over the track with a dominant 1:52.3 win for trainer Brian Malone.
Live racing continues on a Monday through Wednesday schedule.
