Insomniac, with 20-year-old Brady Galliers at the controls, upset a talented field of trotters on Monday afternoon at Hollywood Dayton Raceway, copping the weekly $15,000 featured Open event in 1:54.4. The 4-year-old son of Crazed left alertly and dropped into the two-hole behind Revenue Agent (Peter Wrenn) through early panels of :27 and :55.4.
Eased out down the backstretch, Insomniac stuck a nose in front at the 1:24.3 three-quarters, then pulled away from his adversaries in deep stretch to garner his second local win in four tries. Dispatched at odds of 9-1, the winner returned $20.00 for a $2 ticket. Revenue Agent held for second at 11-1 odds and fellow 14-1 longshot Atlas Peak (Sandy Beatty) benefitted from a ground-saving trip to secure the show spot.
Owned by Galliers Racing LLC, Insomniac eased past the $75,000 seasonal earnings plateau with the victory, and now sports a $216,729 career bankroll. (Hollywood Dayton)
