DAYTON, OH. - Kiss Of Terror (Trace Tetrick) extended his harness racing win streak to seven by winning the $16,700 Open Pace at Hollywood Dayton Raceway on Saturday (Nov. 28).
The streak started with three wins versus $30,000 claiming company at Scioto Downs and has been followed up with twin triumphs at both Oak Grove and Dayton.
Owner-trainer Adam Short's prize possession is nearing $100,000 in seasonal earnings and $400,000 in career bounty with the latest score.
Tetrick was content to sit third in the early going, watching favored GD Western Joe (Chris Page) on the lead and polesitter Braley Hanover (Brady Galliers) getting a pocket ride. After early fractions of :27 and :55.3, Tetrick decided to vacate the pylons and begin a long grueling journey in first-over position. Third after passing the 1:23.3 third station, the 8-year-old Western Terror gelding persevered the entire :27.2 closing quarter to just nip the pacesetters in 1:51.
Braley Hanover, who found room late, was just a head back at the wire; while GD Western Joe tired in the final strides and finished third a half-length behind.
