OBRIGADO WINS SUNDAY 44G OPEN HANDICAP TROT
The weekly trotting feature went at the flat mile,the 11th of 12 races and well after the four added-distance "French" races.
Generously assigned post position No. 2, Obrigado worked around polester Dewycolorintheline (Ray Schnittker) as outside number In Secret (George Brennan)hurdled his six foes and made the lead.
After early intervals of 27.1 and 56.1, Such an Angel (Brent Holland) tried it first-up from fourth. The bid was both brief and poor with In Secret finding a 1:24.3 three-quarters.
He took a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, but Obrigado was lurking. That one edged out and edged away, prevailing by three-quarters of a length in 1:55. Charmed Life (Steve Smith) overcame a weak tow to grab second, with In Secret, Andy Ray (Jason Bartlett) and Dewycolorintheline rounding out the payees.
