Bandolito dazzles in 1:51

04/20/2015 6:02 PM -
Daryl Bier’s Bandolito ($3, Bier) won the opening day feature at Harrington Raceway Monday with a season’s best time on a half-mile track of 1:51.
 The fastest horse so far in North America in 2015, Bandolito, notched his fifth win of the year. Trainer/driver/owner Bier left alertly from his rail post position and was a decisive winner over Jebswesternshake and Believe This Bob.
 Bandolito, a 5-year-old Ponder stallion, became the sport’s fastest horse this year with a dazzling 1:48.1 win at Dover Downs on March 26.
 Despite having limited activity over the half-mile racetrack over the past few months, Harrington’s track seemed to be in mid-season form as five races were timed in 1:53 or less.
 Drivers George Dennis and Jon Roberts each had three winners on the card.
