Dead heat in Open, Wolfenden and Cole win four apiece

08/16/2010 8:06 PM -
In what is believed to be the fastest dead heat in track history, Baron Racing and Green Racing’s Mystique Cruiser ($2.40, Victor Kirby) and Foulk Stables and Lauren Allen’s Sniper Hall ($2.40, Mike Cole) could not be separated at the wire in a 1:53 win in the $20,000 featured Open Pace.
 Sniper Hall, a 7-year-old Blissful Hall ridgling got away third and found room up the inside late to grab the lead before a late charge by the 4-year-old Yankee Cruiser gelding, Mystique Cruiser, rallied sharply and gobbled up ground in the final strides.
 Mystique Cruiser was trained by co-owner Josh Green, while Sniper Hall was trained also by his co-owner Allen.
 Drivers Ross Wolfenden and Mike Cole each had four winners on the program.
