Cindy's Party Boy (Howard Parker) captured the featured pace ($7,000) at Vernon Downs on Saturday (June 29).
The big favorite Sgt Papa Daddy (John MacDonald) went to the front and went to the first quarter in :27.1. Cindy's Party Boy ($9.10) went first-over and took the lead before hitting the half in :55.2. As they went around the final turn he would still control the pace hitting three-quarters in 1:22.3 with Sgt Papa Daddy still following in the pocket.
Cindy's Party Boy, who is owned by the Scarlett Stables and trained by Patti Harmon, led into the stretch and cruised to a win in a lifetime best of 1:49.4. Sgt Papa Daddy held for second with Electrofire (Jennifer Lappe) getting third money.
Cindy's Party Boy is an 8-year-old gelding by Amercian Ideal. It was his third win this season and his eighth career victory.
Howard Parker had two more driving wins on the evening. He once again teamed up with Harmon and the Scarlett Stables for a win with Beach Bum ($9.70). His third win came with Golden Brit ($7.10).

Huckabone Miller is the son of driver Claude Huckabone III and Casey Miller. It was great sight and the first of many wins for the future star. (Vernon)
