Krystal C continued an impressive 2018 campaign on Wednesday night (March 28) as she won her fourth consecutive race with a come from behind nose victory overAritziaHanover in Buffalo Raceway's featured $7,700 pace for the mares.
The 5-year-old Krystal C (Ray Fisher Jr.) has now hit the board in all nine starts this season and toured the Hamburg half-mile oval in a career-best 1:56.2 over the fast track. Her stellar record was overlooked however by the betting public as she returned a healthy $16.20 for the victory.
Things didn't look good for Krystal C with a quarter mile to pace as she was shuffled back to fourth and looked helplessly boxed in. But in the stretch, Krystal C was masterfully maneuvered to the outside and powered to the wire with a :28.4 last split to nose outAritziaHanover (Billy Davis Jr.). Cut And Paste (ShawnMcDonough) took third.
Owned and trained by SabrinaClevenger, Krystal C (Sportswriter-Kayla's Raider) now has five victories in nine starts. The win bumped her seasonal earnings to $20,046 and $44,626 lifetime.
Call Me Maybe lit up the tote board in the tenth race as Shawn McDonough steered the mare to a $126.00 upset victory.
Fisher Jr. completed the evening with four victories in the bike while John Cummings Jr. and Shawn McDonough had doubles. Trainer Ryan Swift conditioned a pair of winners.
Racing will resume on Saturday evening at 6 p.m. with a 12-race card slated. (Buffalo)
