GREAT VINTAGE WINS SATURDAY NIGHT 44G OPEN HANDICAP PACE
Using his usual gate speed, Great Vintag-from post position No. 5-threw down intervals of 27.1, 56.4, 1:24.2 and 1:52.2. He held off a first-up McErlean by a head, with 3-2 favorite Always at My Place (George Brennan) a second-over third.
Pacing Major N (Austin Siegelman) and Doctor Butch (Jason Bartlett) came away with the minors, while logical would-be favorite Evenin'of Pleasure was scratched-sick.
For third choice Great Vintage, a 10-year-old son of American Ideal owned by Christina Takter, John Fielding, Goran Anderberg & Goran Falk and trained by Jimmy Takter, it was his fifth win in 13 seasonal starts (career 45-for-161, earnings over $1.26 million). The exacta paid $102.50, the triple returned $402 and the superfecta paid $636.
It was one of MacDonald's four wins during the 11-race card.
