Quiksilvr Bluechip ($3.60, Victor Kirby) was a 1:55.3 winner in the $20,000 Open Trot Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.
The 6-year-old Credit Winner gelding settled in third to the opening quarter behind early leader Keystone Cecilia. Remarkable De Vie made a quarter-pole brush to the front shortly thereafter, while Quiksilvr Bluechip sat 4th to the half-mile. Secret Jet pulled first-over to the three-quarters with Quiksilver Bluechip following that move and eventually surging three-wide on the final turn and blowing by the leaders for an open length win. Lizzy Lauxmont picked up the chase to finish second at 42-to-1, while Remarkable De Vie held third. Trained by co-owner Kirby, it was the 2nd win of the year for Quiksilvr Bluechip, who is also owned by Tyler Raymer, Stephen Moss and Brian Hoffecker.
Earlier on the card, owner/trainer/driver Jim Atkinson earned his first career pari-mutuel driving win with trotter Freedom Express ($8) in 1:58.3.
Allan Davis, Montrell Teague and Pat Berry each had 3 wins on the card.
