Make it five straight wins for Vapor In The Wind ($5.40) at the Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park Saturday as the top pacer won the $16,000 Open Handicap for driver Kevin Wallis, hitting the wire in 1:52.1.


Starting from post eight in the sixth race feature, Wallis wasted little time sending Vapor In The Wind after early pacesetter, Armbro Dynamic (Wally Hennessey), taking the lead away at the opening quarter mile in :27.


After the half mile in :55.2 it was Cape Karuna and driver Anthony Napolitano who started up first-over after Vapor In The Wind and pressed the leader to the three-quarter mile marker in 1:23.4. Then around the final turn and down the stretch Cape Karuna gave it his all but could not catch Vapor In The Wind who won by a head. Cape Karuna was a game second with Armbro Dynamic third in the photo finish.


It was the first start this year for Vapor In The Wind, a five-year-old gelded son of Cole Muffler. Dick Macomber trains Vapor In The Wind for the Tanah Merah Farms of Springfield, IL.(Pompano)
