The Big Muscle Flexes At Harrington

Bill Emmons' The Big Muscle ($37.80, Russell Foster) was an upset winner in the $12,000 Open Trot on Wednesday (July 15) at Harrington Raceway.

The eight-year-old Muscle Mass gelding notched his seventh win of the season for trainer Armand Bernard. The Big Muscle sat third much of the mile before getting clearance in the stretch and surging past Bluebird Jesse and Faithfulandtrue to win by a head in 1:56.4. It was his 20th career victory.

The featured win aboard The Big Muscle was one of four driving wins on the card for Foster. Allan Davis and Art Stafford Jr. had driving doubles.

Live racing will go on hiatus until Aug. 17, when racing will continue on a Monday and Tuesday schedule for the balance of the month before a Monday-through-Wednesday schedule takes over on Sept. 7.
