Jenson posted a natural hat trick in races four, five and six on the program which began with a sharp gate-to-wire steer on race favorite Fox River Luke (1:58.1, $4.20) for trainer Amos Hines in a $7,100 conditioned trot.

Next, Jenson piloted his own pacer Sneaky Hill ($6.20) to his fourth straight win in a career best 1:53.3 to take an $11,800 conditioned event.

He then posted an impressive effort aboard Lovin On You in the featured $19,800 Minnesota-sired sophomore ‘A’ pace for owner Jay De Long and trainer Justin Anfinson. It was the second win of the season and a new mark of 1:54.1 for the son of Easy Again.

Jenson topped off his big night by sweeping the daily double in the final two contests on the card, posting a big closing effort with Lickcreek Speedway ($15.00) in 1:55.1 in a $12,000 conditioned pace for trainer Emilio Cisneros and then going gate-to-wire from post nine as the favorite with Sweetshadyshark ($4.20) in a $7,200 event for trainer Angie Coleman.

I’m A Skoldier (Wind Me Up, $3.00) and driver Mooney Svendsen made it five in a row to take the $16,500 freshman male pace in 1:56.1 over Polar Storm (Chip Lackey) and King Of Aces (Luke Plano). The winner is owned by Van Otterloo Stables and trained by Bob Lems.

Wavzeka (Art’s Chip, $44.60) and driver Rick Magee posted an impressive gate-to-wire score from post seven in the $16,500 freshman filly pace in a career best 1:59.2 for owner Jay De Long and trainer Justin Anfinson. Quite The Flirt (Plano) was home second and Stevies Girl (Svendsen) checked in third.
