Harrington, DE – Victor Kirby’s Jammin Jack ($3, Kirby) won his third straight race as he marched to a 1:56.2 triumph in the $18,000 Open Trot Wednesday (May 8) at Harrington Raceway.
Majestic Mistress took the early lead from post eight and led the field of six through fractions of 28.1, 57.4 and 1:27.2 while favorite Jammin Jack started his first over grind.
“Jack” began to wear down the leaders near the three-quarters and drew away from the field as Majestic Mistress went off stride. Jammin Jack opened up multiple lengths on the field and hit the wire 1-1/2 lengths ahead of Battle Mage, who was second. Five Towns held third.
Jammin Jack has already eclipsed his 3-year-old earnings with more than $60,000 banked in 2019. The 4-year-old Angus Hall gelding has won 11 of 32 lifetime starts.
Driver Mike Cole had three wins on the program. Art Stafford Jr. and Kirby each had a double.
