Speakrightomyheart and driver Tyler Buter put up a national season's mark of 1:55.2 while taking the first division of the Bingo Johnnie Stake on Sunday night at Balmoral Park.
The Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old stakes action continued on Sunday night as a total of 13 pacing colts squared off in a pair of $5,000 divisions of the Bingo Johnnie Stake.

In the first division, the Darcy Pletcher trained Speakrightomyheart turned in a game performance as he battled tooth and nail for a three-quarter-length decision in a national season's best of 1:55.2.

Sent right to the top by driver Tyler Buter, this son of Cole Muffler-Winbak Pam set splits of 30.0, 1:00.2 and 1:28.0. Despite being headed briefly at the top of the lane by a first over Wheresmeluckycharms (Todd Warren), Speakrightomyheart showed he had plenty of heart as he flew home in 27.2 to get his first victory.

Charlie Beans (Dave Magee) turned a pocket sitting journey into the place check while Just Call My Name (Mike Oosting) rallied to finish third.

Fort Hamilton
Josh Sutton had Fort Hamilton on cruise control as the captured Sunday's second division of the Bingo Johnnie Stake in 1:57.1.
In the second division, Iris Horowitz’s Fort Hamilton uncorked a big final quarter to rally for a 1 ˝ length triumph in 1:57.1.

Using a pylon-skimming trip to perfection as Commercial Grade (Todd Warren) strolled through splits of 29.2, 1:00.4 and 1:30.1, driver Josh Sutton secured room in the late going for Fort Hamilton. This long-striding son of Sportsmaster-Bensonhurst did the rest as he ripped off a 26.4 final quarter to get his first win in career start number two.

Apache Renegade (Brian Carpenter) was a game second while Tarr (Dave Magee) came on late to finish third.
