Indiana invader Our Lucky Chip trounced nine rivals to win the $260,000 American National 3-Year-Old Colt Pace in 1:52.3 on Saturday night, Nov. 10 at Balmoral Park.

Harnessed by co-owner Jason Miller, the son of Art’s Chip-Lady Moira pushed his seasonal bankroll to $393,862 and his career earnings to $399,187 with the win, the 19th of his career and his 17th this year.

“We came from way back to win this one,” said winning driver Trace Tetrick. “I knew I had good cover and we were third-over around the last turn, and he was looking to chase some horses down, and I was pretty confident at the head of the lane that he’d be able to do just that.”

The victory was the tenth consecutive win for Our Lucky Chip, who brushed his final panel in :28.

“It’s been a matter of keeping this horse sound and teaching him manners,” said Miller, who co-owns the bay colt in partnership with R Bradley Roller of Indiana. “We have a few hours to think about putting him in the Windy City Pace for next week, but so far he’s done nothing short of just amazing us week after week.”

Dynamic Youth (Andy McCarthy) got up for second, four lengths behind the winner, while Easy Again (Montrell Teague) finished third.
