Smith rolls a seven at Dayton

Dayton, OH — Ohio’s 28-degree weather may be cold, but driver Jeremy Smith was red-hot on Thursday (Nov. 17) at Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, winning half of the 14-race card.

The 42-year-old’s most impressive win of the evening came aboard 32-1 long shot Heerz Howie Roll in race nine. The gelded son of Racing Hill left conservatively off the gate. Gapping to sixth at the half-mile marker, Smith and Heerz Howie Roll were seemingly buried. Despite sitting eighth at the top of the stretch, Smith shot down the open stretch and crossed the finish line first in 1:55.4. Trained by Robert Brooks, Heerz Howie Roll paid a whopping $66.40 to win.

With 75 victories so far this meet, Smith is the leading dash-winning driver at Dayton Raceway. Just last month, Smith surpassed 3,000 career victories and has now earned over $2.5 million in purses in 2022.
