Although he was hung three wide through the first quarter before reaching the top in :26.4, K Ryan Bluechip held off all subsequent challenges and persevered to win the $18,500 Open Pace in 1:51.2 on Saturday at Hollywood Dayton Raceway.

The even money favorite, a 5-year-old son of Art Major driven by Dan Noble, held off a hard-charging Whataboy (Chris Page) and Doctor Carter (Mike Micallef) to cop his 11th seasonal victory and 23rd of his career.  Lucky Lime (Kyle Ater), who endured a grueling first-over journey, finished a respectable fourth, while My Buddy Ninkster (Tyler Smith) picked up the fifth and final check in the talented nine-horse field.

The winner’s share pushed the Virgil Morgan Jr. trainees lifetime bounty over the $300,000 plateau.  K Ryan Bluechip is owned by Carl Howard, Bruce and Trish Soulsby, and Alan Weisenberg.
