Drama Act now has 14 wins in 22 starts this year.  Saturday’s victory represents her 22nd career score and bolstered her lifetime bankroll to $421,312.  She was heavily favored and returned $2.80 to win.

The record-breaking performance was just the highlight of the big evening for driver Ronnie Wrenn Jr., who scored seven wins on the Saturday program.
