Joan Dalphon and Elanor Laws' Don't Ya Know ($16.60, Allan Davis) won his second straight race Monday with a 7-to-1 upset in the $17,000 Open Pace on opening day Monday at Harrington Raceway in 1:52.1.
The 4-year-old Western Ideal gelding followed Feel Like A Fool into second-over position on the outside and hit his best stride in the stretch to pass tiring pacesetter Manhattan Rusty N and outkick a bottled up Lollipop Kid, who shook loose late for second, for a one-length win. Feel Like A Fool was third. Trained by Jason Skinner, it was the fourth win of the year for the winner. It was one of five wins on the program for driver Davis.
Any doubt as to the track condition for opening day was quickly removed as the fastest race on the program occurred in the fourth race when John Dayton's Just a Jolt ($2.60, Victor Kirby) cruised to a 1:51.3 triumph. Trained by Jim King Jr., it was Just A Jolt's fifth win of a thus far stellar 2014 campaign. The winning clocking was just two-fifths of a second off the 4-year-old gelding track record, held by Western Ace.
Ross Wolfenden had three winners on the program. (Harrington)
