Lindy’s Crazy Hall cruises in Plainridge feature
« Return to News
It’s been 20 days since Lindy’s Crazy Hall scored a convincing gate-to-wire victory at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono in a $30,000 Pennsylvania Sires Stake event. But the time off did nothing but make him sharper as he ran away with the $10,000 featured trot for 5-year-olds and under at Plainridge Park on Friday afternoon.
Lindy’s Crazy Hall (Drew Monti) blasted off the gate from post eight and found himself on the point by five lengths in an extremely peppy :26.3. Monti reined in the colt in the second panel but gave him his head again in the third as he went three-quarters in 1:26. Still gapping the competition, Lindy’s Crazy Hall rounded the last turn already wrapped up, and trotted home in :29.4 to stop the clock in 1:55.4 in the 3 ½-length victory.
It was the fourth straight win for the 1-9 Lindy’s Crazy Hall ($2.10) who has now banked $40,000 in five 2019 starts. The 3-year-old colt by Cantab Hall-Lindy’s Gone Crazy is owned by Greathorse of Massachusetts.
Mitchell Cushing led all driver for wins on Friday, scoring a Hat Trick on the card. Those wins vaulted him back into the driving led for the meet now with 89 wins, one ahead of Shawn Gray who had the lead going into the day. (Standardbred Owners Of Mass.)
