The third round of the Fall Sprint proved racing is not cut and dry Saturday, Sept 25, at Derby Lane. Although beaten in round three Cal Holland Kennel’s Jack’s Shortfuse (Flying Stanley-Leta’s Shadow) tops the leader board for trainer Justin Holland with 34 points as she eyes the semifinal round on Wednesday. Also upset was the stakes favorite Flying Coal City, who is just behind Shortfuse with 33 points for the Barbara McAllister-trained male.
Before the night card the tri super was taken down in the matinee. The wager is placed in race five where one must pick the trifecta. A winning ticket gets you in to race seven where one selects the superfecta. One person picked correctly and won. The tri-super paid $51,492 for the 8-5-7 in race 5’s first half and the 6-2-3-1 combination in race 7.
