Pacer does Trigger impersonation at Monticello

One of Zeke Parker’s six wins on Wednesday at Monticello Raceway was with Cynthia Lynn Massari’s 3-year-old Artiscape gelding Takemewithyou. Parker guided the pacer to a 1:58.2 wire–to-wire triumph over Texas Treasure much to the pleasure of Cynthia and her husband Peter who went to the winner's circle for a photo after their colt’s victory.
But the lightly-raced Takemewithyou had other ideas when he reached the place where the photo was to be snapped. Parker quickly sensed what the pacer had in mind and alertly stepped off the sulky while Takemewithyou decided to put on a show.
Unflappable, Parker turned to the Massari’s and the photographer, Geri Schwarz, and said with a smile, “He’s doing his Trigger impersonation."
The pacer returned to all fours, stood for a picture and Parker jumped back on the bike and the two went back to the paddock. (Monticello)
