Treviso, Overdraft Volo take PASS 3FT
« Return to News
The Yankee Glide filly Overdraft Volo is now two-for-two in the Sire Stakes and for 2017 after overcoming a first-over journey and lowering her mark to 1:54.3 in the other section. Last year's PA divisional champion Fine Tuned Lady made a threatening rally but came up a half-length shy behind the winner of $202,340, who is owned by the Pinske Stables and Kentuckiana Racing Stables and is backed by Team Orange Crush – driver Andy Miller and trainer/wife Julie.
In a $25,000 winners-over handicap trot, Homicide Hunter, returning to the track where he trotted the second-fastest mile over a 5/8-mile oval, 1:50.1, last year, caught favored Tuonoblu Rex to post a 1:52 victory. Tuonoblu Rex tried to steal with the race with a 26.4 third quarter that got him to the third pole in 1:22.2, but Homicide Hunter, stalking him from the pocket, had enough to go by late for driver George Napolitano Jr., trainer Chris Oakes, and Crawford Farms Racing.
