POWERFUL POSITION ROLLS IN ISOBA SALE STAKE

Powerful Position
Powerful Position and driver Brian Carpenter made it look easy while taking Wednesday's $12,605 ISOBA Super Sale Stake at Balmoral Park.
Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old trotting colts were front and center on Wednesday night at Balmoral Park, as a compact field of six youngsters squared off in a $12,605 ISOBA Super Sale Stake.

As expected the Pam Coleman-trained Powerful Position took advantage of the absence of many of the top trotters in the division as he had absolutely no trouble disposing of his rivals, posting a 1 length victory in 2:00.1.

Perfectly handled by driver Brian Carpenter, the gelded son of Powerful Emotion sat right on the back on his main rival, Anthonyskywalker (Todd Warren), as that gelding led the way through splits of 29.2 and 1:01.1.

With Fox Valley Arrow (Dale Hiteman) pulling from third as the field moved midway around the final turn, Carpenter maneuvered his charge out of the pocket and quickly overtook the pace-setting Anthonyskywalker as the field reached the three-quarter-mile mark in 1:31.3.

On cruise control the rest of the way, the 6-5 favorite of the betting public was never in danger as he rolled under the wire with his fourth win in 15 starts this season. Fox Valley Arrow rallied to finish second while Itz Alive (Art Gregory Jr.) finished third.

With the victory Powerful Position now boasts more than $48,000 in earnings for the partnership of Coleman, Jerry Graham and Bart Seales.
