Dayton, OH — A full field of 10 went behind the gate for the $25,000 Open Handicap Trot on Wednesday (Nov. 9) at Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, and Kings County didn’t disappoint his backers as the even money favorite.
Brett Miller eased the 6-year-old son of Muscle Hill to the top. Although two-wide through the :27.3 opening quarter, Kings County gained control of the field soon thereafter without hesitation, posting middle fractions of :55.4 and 1:24.1 before stopping the clock in 1:53.1. Lockbox (Tony Hall) was second with Rose Run Valor (Kayne Kauffman) finishing third.
The victory marked the 10th seasonal win for Kings County. With lifetime earnings just south of $429,000, the horse has hit the board 19 of 30 starts this year. Stacey Van Huizen conditions Kings County for Thestable Kings County group.
Live racing at Dayton Raceway will resume Thursday (Nov. 10) with first post at 4 p.m. Free programs are always available online. For more information on the facility and live racing season, visit the Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway website.
