Red-hot Josh Sutton, Miami Valley's leading driver and ranked seventh in the country in 2015 wins, racked up another most impressive night over the southwest Ohio five-eighths mile oval. The 32-year-old reinsman visited the winner's circle six times during the 14-race card to become the first Miami Valley driver to pass the 100 win plateau already this season and the seventh driver in North America to reach that level. Sutton started the evening with 95 wins at Miami Valley to go with a .312 UDRS and $536,833 in purses earned for owners of horses he has handled.
Only two of Sutton's winners were favorites. His parade of winners started in the third with Sand Shark (1:55.3, $9.40 to win), followed by Gypsy Colors (1:54.2, $8.80), trotter Vacation Angel (1:59.2, $17), Settlement Request (1:56.2, $6.40), Sir Howie's Z Tam (1:54.4, $3.40), and trotter Claim Jumper (1:57.3, $41).
Driver Chris Page scored a triple on the Wednesday program; while Randy Tharps doubled. (Miami Valley)
