« Return to News
Top young driver Jeff Nisonger made three trips to the Scioto Downs winner\'s circle on Thursday night, including two behind freshman pacing fillies.
Nisonger scored with the fillies Save My Shark (Four Starzzz Shark) in 1:58.3 by 3 3/4 lengths and with Walk Softly (Allamerican Native), a 5 1/4-length winner in 1:59.4. Nisonger also drove the 9-year-old Life Sign gelding Studley Lamont to victory in 1:57.1.
Two horses shared honors as the night\'s fastest winner at 1:55.3. The 3-year-old Volo paced an impressive last half mile to win by four lengths for driver David Myers and owner-trainer Dan Conkright. Good Connections came from well off the pace to win in an identical time for Kyle Ater, driving the 6 year old for injured trainer Darin Mouser and owner Phillip New of Waverly, Ohio. (Scioto Downs)
