Outside Posts Rule Wednesday

09/07/2022 5:37 PM -

The outside posts usually don’t produce a high winning percentage on a half-mile racetrack, however, 4 horses from post 8 prevailed Wednesday at Harrington Raceway. 

 The tone was set early on the card as the first 4 races were won by horses starting from the outside posts, 3 of them from post 8 as A Royal Blast ($15.40, Jason Thompson), Always B Wayne ($3.20, Ross Wolfenden), Hiro Knockout ($5.80, Montrell Teague) and Ginger Tree Skyr ($9.80, Corey Callahan) all prevailed despite the undesirable starting location. 

 The 7th race saw another outside starter prevail when Rapid Pulse ($20, Allan Davis) scored a win from post 8.

In the overnight feature, Howard Taylor's  Swan In Motion ($6.80, Art Stafford Jr.) won his 2nd straight race over the track in the $20,000 Open Trot in 1:57. The Dylan Davis-trainee left the gate in strong fashion from post five and controlled the tempo throughout with a 3-length win over Pass Key and Hatikvah. It was the 8th win of the year for the 5-year-old Swan For All stallion. 

Teague had a driving triple. Allan Davis and Stafford Jr. each had driving doubles.
