Credit List scored his third straight Monticello Raceway harness racing Open Trot with a dramatic late stretch surge.
Driver and trainer Justin Huckabone dropped the gelding back to fifth through a :29.1 first quarter and moved him second-over before the half in :59.1. The horse advanced on the cover of Watkins (Cory Stratton) until the latter begin to back up at three-quarters in 1:28.2.
Huckabone tipped Credit List three-wide turning for home, but they remained about six lengths back at the head of the stretch. Kabang (Michael Merton) led as they sprinted for the line, Arch Credit (Kyle Dibenedetto) ducked to the rail, and Cinnamon Stick (Bruce Aldrich Jr.) attacked from the three-path.
Credit List came home best though, turning on the jets in the final eighth to blow by them all and win by a head in 1:57.4. Cinnamon Stick got up for place, and Arch Credit held third.
Credit list is now 16-for-104 lifetime with just less than $155,000 earned. Jonathan Applebaum of Yorktown Heights owns the six-year-old Credit Winner gelding.
Monticello Raceway will return on Thursday, Apr. 15. Thirteen races are scheduled.
