Speed Of Shogun carried out the favorite’s role to perfection in capturing Friday night’s $15,000 Open Handicap Trot in 1:58 at Vernon Downs.

Jim Meittinis, who chalked up three wins during Friday’s 12-race program, urged Speed Of Shogun to the front from the outside six post in the evening’s 10th contest and the two were never headed en route to a 1-3/4 length triumph over the pocket-sitting Theater Production. Cross Creek Whiz closed for third.

The season’s personal-best effort by Speed Of Shogun resulted in his fourth victory of 2006 and the winner’s share of the purse bumped his lifetime earnings to more than $233,000. Earl Cruise conditions the 10-year-old son of Shogun Lobell for the Jesmeral Stable.
