Little Joke ($4.00) showed the field in the $9,500 Open Pace for mares at Buffalo Raceway on Wednesday night (Jan. 24) that she wasn't going to fool around, as she was all business in wiring the field in 1:58.2.

Scoring from post four, Little Joke scooted right to the lead for driver Billy Davis, Jr. and posted fractions of :29, :59.2, and 1:29.4 over a fast track.

In the drive to the finish line it was a cavalry charge, but no one had the answer as Little Joke held her ground and handily posted a two-length win over Voltina (John Cummings, Jr.) and Hey Kobe (Shawn McDonough).

Co-owned by the Vogel & Wags Nags Stable and Jack Rice, the six-year-old Little Joke (Bettors Delight-Town Joke) is trained by Maria Rice. It was her 17th win in just 51 lifetime appearances, earning $164,475 along the way.

Quicksilvercandy A (Bad Bert-Forzett), a 14-year-old mare who tied for the most wins in the United States last year with 22, made it a perfect three-for-three in 2018 with a 1-1/4 length victory over Escada De Vie in 1:59. Owned by Larry Stalbaum and trained by Kimberly Asher, it was the 66th career win for Quicksilvercandy A, a winner of $113,694 last year and $687,728 lifetime.

Drew Monti and Shawn Gray each had driving triples on the night while Cummings had a pair. Trainer J.D. Perrin sent a trip to the winner's circle while Jim Clouser, Jr. doubled.

Racing on Friday night (Jan. 26) has been cancelled due to a lack of entries, but a 13-race program is set for Saturday evening (Jan. 27) at 6:00 p.m.
