Kiss Me Onthebeach, enjoying her second straight $100,000-plus earnings season, topped Hollywood Dayton Raceway’s finest distaffers on Friday night winning the $18,500 featured race in 1:51.2.
The 4-year-old Somebeachsomewhere lass left the gate enthusiastically for driver Chris Page reaching the quarter-mile marker in :27.1. With her eight talented adversaries seated along the pylons most of the second quarter, Kiss Me Onthebeach reached the midway point of the mile in :55.2, then accelerated through the third panel in 1:22.4 before closing with a :28.3 final quarter to close the deal by about two lengths.
Jerseylicious attempted a first-over bid to reach Kiss Me Onthebeach’s wheel during the middle half, but had too much ground to make up from her assigned outside post position. Town Temptress (Kyle Ater) launched a three-wide attack at the three-quarter station, but could do no better than second at the finish. My Tweed Heart (Josh Sutton) used a ground-saving trip to salvage the show dough.
The win was the seventh on the season for Kiss Me Onthebeach, and 12th of her 46-race career. Owned by the Willow Oak Ranch, the Danny Collins trainee has now surpassed $300,000 in lifetime earnings.
