Sevruga continued his dominant 2012 season with an easy win in the $50,000 Open Trot on Sunday night.
Sevruga, who came in on a three-race winning streak, left from post position fourin a field of nine as the 1-2 favorite and sat the pocket at the quarter behind early leader Windsun Galaxie. The 4-year-old gelding trained by Julie Miller was then urged to the outside by driver Miller and took over the lead shy of the three-eighths-mile marker, a lead he wouldn't relinquish.
He never got a serious threat from the rest of his foes and won by 3 1/2 lengths in 1:52.3. Anders Bluestone finished second while Rose Run Hooligan picked up the show.
Sevruga, the offspring of SJ's Caviar and Stunning Lindsey, won for the seventh time in nine starts this year. Owned by KDM Stables Corp., he now has 14 lifetime victories and career earnings of $256,991. (Pocono)
