Cotolo’s Harness-Weekend Review, 4-11-11
Spring Pacing Championship Final at Woodbine but he got second. This past weekend the tables turned in a $45,000 Open pace as Lisagain, trained by Jeff Gillis, got up out of the 2-hole to win in 1:50. Both horses made two moves, proving that they are to be reckoned with in the older pacer division this season.
We are following older trotters with star status, so here is the latest on two monsters. Arch Madness returned to the race in a $35,000 Open Handicap trot Chester and won in the slop. He was not the choice. Favorite status belonged to Lucky Jim, making his 2011 debut. At 2-5, he made a break in the stretch while attempting a come-from-behind rally.
“Arch,” a Trond Smedshammer student, has another trotter, Likeabatoutahell, doing great so far this season at Pocono Downs. With John Campbell up, “Like” won for the second time in three tries this season; his lifetime earnings are now over $722,000.
