On Monday the mares did their thing  in Monticello Raceway’s name Your Claiming Price Series and on Wednesday, February 6 three divisions of  horses and geldings did battle in their divisions with Sams Fortune, Thomas John N and Haroun Hanover each emerging victorious in their respective divisions.

The first of the three to be victorious was the Ed Hall-owned  Sams Fortune in the second race  when the 5 year old Cams Fortune  gelding, who was six lengths back at the three quarters, rallied to a one length triumph over  11-1 shot Eyesbold ( Peter Lutman III) in a 1:59.3 clocking for driver Jimmy Marohn, Jr.

Trained by Danny Gill  Sams Fortune paid $2.80 for win.

The Gill-Marohn connection clicked again in the 11th race when  Jimmy, Jr. guided the Ed and James Hall–owned Bettor’s Choice gelding Haroun Hanover to a 1:58.1 triumph over No Free Parking handled by Bruce Aldrich, Jr. The winner paid $3.00 for win.

The other Name Your Claiming Price Series winner was Thomas John N driven by Mike Simons. They used the front-end route and held on by a nose over the Pat Beeler-driven  Nutmeg’s Taxi in a time of 1:59.2.

The 11 year old  New Zealand-bred  gelding is owned and trained  by Gail Wrubel. The altered son of Live Or Die paid $6.60 for win.

The pacers in each of the three events were in for a $4000 tag. Next Wednesday owners will have a option to race back for that price or move up to a $5000 claiming tag. Of course, if any do they’ll draw outside the $4,000 claiming entries.
