After a three-win campaign in 2021, Phone In has definitely settled into his new surroundings. The eight-year-old appears on his way to a career best campaign after his fifth straight tally on Saturday (June 4) at Hiawatha Horse Park.
A $7,000 claim by owner-trainer George Robinson of Windsor, Ont. last October, Phone In hasn't tasted defeat since mid-April. Garrett Rooney was at the controls for today's score, angling Phone In our from third down the backside to pounce on a tired pacesetter Brightside Melvin (Scott Wray). As the leader hit the wall around the final turn, Phone In ($6.40) cleared to the lead and then held off the late bid of Santanna Tony (Tyler Borth) to win by a head in 1:57.3. Smart Thinking (Jonathan Hahn) rallied for show.
Phone In (Vintage Master - Smart Dialing) notched career victory no. 23 and pushed his bankroll to $126,209.
