Louis Tomczak Jr.'s Proper One ($55.40, Cody Poliseno) has a good record on opening night at Harrington Raceway.
The 9-year-old Proper Respect gelding won for the second straight year on the track's opening night, with a 1:55.1 triumph to kick off Harrington's 77th season of live harness racing in the 1st of 14 races on the program. The Carlo Poliseno-trainee started the season in similar fashion last year when he was victorious as an even bigger long shot and paid $148 to win. A winner of nearly $500,000 lifetime, Proper Respect utilized a second-over trip to outkick his rivals late for a narrow win over fellow long shot Silver Fox J and Win Not Lou.
In the $17,000 Junior Open feature, George and Tina Dennis' Wager On Me ($10.80, Mike Cole) was a 1:53.3 winner over Got The Mojo and Bodega Bay. The Joe Columbo-trainee uncorked a 27.1 second last quarter to pass tiring rivals late for his 4th win of the year.
Montrell Teague had 4 winners on the card, including a pair each for Clyde Francis and Chuck Crissman Jr.
Pat Berry and Corey Callahan each had a driving double.
Live racing will continue on a Monday through Wednesday schedule. Post time is 4:30 p.m.
