The favorite, Mr. Big Wig (Mr. Wiggles-Miss Muffet) finished a neck back in second and Keepmywiglegametyt (Mr Wiggles-Airtight) got up for the show.
Part two of the double was the showdown between last week’s winners and the win went to Chillaxin Away (Roddy’s Bags Again-Shake Away) in a new lifetime record of 1:51.2 for the meet’s leading driver, Tim Tetrick and trainer Jim King Jr. and his wife, owner, Jo Ann Looney-King.
