LEAVEITONTHETRACK TAKES ISOBA STAKE

Leavitonthetrack
Driver Robert Smolin guided Leaveitonthetrack to a career best of 1:56 while taking Wednesday's $14,720 ISOBA Stake at Balmoral Park.
Sophomore trotting colts were the center of attention on Wednesday night at Balmoral Park as a compact field of six diagonally gaited state-breds was sent postward in a $14,720 Illinois Standardbred Owners and Breeders Association Stake.

Once again trainer Jerald Viviani’s charges dominated the action, but this week it was Leaveitonthetrack who bested stablemate Showmeyourstuff by 3 ½ lengths in a career best of 1:56.0.

Content to sit in the pocket as Showmeyourstuff (Marcus Miller) led the way through splits of 29.1, 59.0 and 1:28.2, driver Robert Smolin had the son of Tsunami Ranger-Get Groovin perfectly positioned as the field turned for home.

As a tiring Showmeyourstuff began to drift away from the pylons in the final eighth of a mile, Smolin asked his charge for trot and the bay gelding responded beautifully as he trotted home in 27.2 to pick up his second win in five starts this season. Showmeyourstuff was second while Muscatine (Dale Hiteman) finished third, 4 ¾ lengths behind the winner who is owned in partnership by Sue Phillips and Jerald and Donna Viviani.
