Harrington, DE – Elizabeth Brittingham and Bret Brittingham’s Itsrockandroll A ($5.20, Allan Davis) scored his sixth straight win Monday (Sept. 18) at Harrington Raceway in 1:52.2 in the featured $20,000 Open.
The 8-year-old A Rocknroll Dance gelding continued his dominance over the circuit in the top overnight event by overcoming post position eight to win in wire-to-wire fashion over Sir Charles Of Sky and Virgo. It was his ninth win of the year for trainer Don Brittingham. The win streak for Itsrockandroll A has remained intact despite starting from outside posts on the regular, with each victory during that time coming from post six or worse.
Freshman pacer Hundred Dollar Man ($2.10, Montrell Teague) had an impressive local debut with a 1:54.1 score in a $10,000 conditioned pace. The Clyde Francis-trainee had been racing on the Ohio Sire Stakes circuit for owner Brenda Teague, where he had earned $93,400 already this season prior to Monday’s win. The Lather Up gelding has won 3 of 7 starts this year and sports the fastest mark by a freshman pacer over the Harrington half-mile the past 2 years.
Trainer Chuck Crissman Jr. had three victories on the card.
Montrell Teague, Ross Wolfenden and Tony Morgan each had a driving double.
