“TRADER BUD” TAKES BILLINGS MID-WEST FINAL
When all was said and done it was “Trader Bud” Hatfield and Just A Lad living up to their 6-5 favoritism with an easy 1 ˝ length victory in 2:01.0.
Handled with supreme confidence by Mr. Hatfield, Just A Lad was a patient sixth in the early going as Dale Zahn and Zorgwijk Fatal buzzed through opening splits of 30.3 & 59.2.
Moving around the final turn Bob Troyer had Rubicella out and rolling, which provided live cover for Hatfield and Just A Lad. These two quickly zipped right by a tiring Zorgwijk Fatal as the field reached the three-quarter-mile station in 1:30.1.
In the $5,000 Billings Consolation George Bonomo guided Spit Happens to victory in 2:00. JJ Hergert was second for David Ehrenberg II while My Victory Song and David Carter finished third.
