Longshot Win And Dream Cops Open Trot

February 29, 2024


Making his first foray in the Open ranks, the 17- 1 Win And Dream enjoyed a perfect 2 hole journey throughout as Chip Chip Conway cut the mile, he was able to find room along the rail to scoot home a winner to hold off Chip Chip Conway (J. Taggart) with Hot Summer Knight finishing third (G. Merton) in 2:02 – $36.00 on a sloppy track.  It was his second straight win for the Steve Ray trainee, the 6 YO son of Winning Fireworks, a youngster for Steve Ray who has much success with aged campaigners.

Greg Merton and Kyle Dibenedetto each had driving double and trainer Jody Dunning also had a duce on the day. After 4 consecutive second places performances, Vel What A Dream (M. Sowers) notched her first win on the year for trainer Steve Moore in 2:01.3 – $3.50.
