YOUNGSTERS IMPRESS IN BINGO JOHNNIE SPLITS
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.
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.
