Steve Wiseman final atop Cal Expo bill

Sacramento, CA — Unfiltered, a winner of five of his seven appearances at this meet, heads the cast for Sunday night’s (Feb. 5) $15,500 Steve Wiseman final for the pacers at Cal Expo.

Watch and Wager LLC will present 12 races with first post set for 4:55 p.m..

The co-feature on the evening is the DHA Filly and Mare Free-For-All Pace, with the Wiseman going as the sixth race and the FFA set as the seventh contest on the evening.

Unfiltered is a 5-year-old son of Always A Virgin out of the Dontgetinmyway mare Miss Millie who goes about his business for Qks Racing, is conditioned by Quentin Schneider and will have Mooney Svendsen in the sulky. He comes into this weekend’s assignment having posed for pictures following 17 of his 34 trips to the post and sports a 1:52.1 career standard established here in his first start at this meet back in mid-November.

Unfiltered followed that huge mile with three more victories, then had to settle for a third and a fourth-place finish in his next two outings while carving out the fractions on both occasions.

The Schneider trainee returned to his winning ways in last week’s tour, making every pole a winning one with James Kennedy while going off as the co-favorite with Quarantini, who checked in third in that affair.

Set to face him are Down It for Elson Miller; Firenado with Brad Irvine; Quarantini, Chip Lackey; and Cartiere with Shawn Thayer guiding from the outside post.

Divine Art puts 15-race streak on the line

Divine Art, who has rattled off 15 wins in a row, looks to continue her winning ways as she heads the marquee in Sunday night’s $12,500 DHA Filly and Mare Free-For-All Pace.

Divine Art is a 4-year-old daughter of Outrageious Art who is owned, trained and driven by Gerry Longo and recorded the first 12 victories of her streak in her native Canada, the most recent in mid-December at Century Mile.

She was then purchased privately by Longo and has been equally impressive in a trio of outings since arriving at Cal Expo while steadily climbing up the class ladder, beginning with conditioned scores before moving up to the Distaff Open for her last appearance two weeks ago.

Sent off the 1-2 choice in that affair, Divine Art was sent to the top by Longo, then was covered up past the quarter and played the role of stalker to the stretch. When room developed along the rail, she had the needed response and went on to a three-quarter length tally.

Taking her on Sunday are Prom Queen, Blue Star Mystic, Senga Nightmare, Park With Me Nancy, Give Me This Dance and Pure Addition.

Next week will find the trotters and pacers in action on Friday and Saturday night, with no racing on Super Bowl Sunday.
