Austin Siegelman has always danced to a different beat. Thursday (Feb. 22) was no different. Taking advantage of the absence of leading drivers James DeVaux and Bruce Aldrich Jr., the 25-year-old Siegelman reeled off four winners on the afternoon nine-race card at Monticello.
The first winner of the day came midway in the card in race four aboard Musical Romance ($6.30) from post three, scoring for trainer Robert Lounsbury in 2:02. Siegelman then won the next two races in succession with Cundalini from the rail in 2:01.3 and Sheer Action (PP6) in 2:01.1.
The fourth win of the card came in the last race with the favorite Oneisalonleynumber in 2:00.4 for trainer James Siegelman, who enjoyed a training double.
With the four wins, it gives Siegelman a seasonal tally of 31 victories, which is within striking distance of overtaking Bruce Aldrich Jr., who is currently in second place with 32 wins. (Monticello)
