Since shipping in from Charlottetown, PEI, Osprey Impact had been undefeated in three starts in Massachusetts and he extended that streak once again on Thursday afternoon by winning the $14,000 Open Handicap Trot at Plainridge Park.

Osprey Impact (Mike Stevenson) left and led every step of the way in race seven, setting fractions of :27.3, :56.2 and 1:24.3. He opened up around the final turn and stretched out to a four-length margin of victory timed in 1:53.4, which was only one-fifth second off the lifetime mark he just set last week.

It was the ninth win of the year for Osprey Impact ($3.40) who is owned by Paul Larrabee and trained by Robert Marston.

The $12,000 conditioned undercard trot produced a very similar race and result as A Nashty Business (Chris Long) left off the wings and dictated every step from there. He barrelled down to the half in :55.4 and trotted home handily with a gapped two-length lead to win in 1:53.3, which was a new lifetime mark by three seconds.

The win also completed a grand slam for A Nashty Business except that all the wins were at four different tracks: Grand River, Flamboro Downs, Yonkers Raceway and now Plainridge Park.

A Nashty Business ($8.00) is owned by William Sartin who just privately purchased the eight-year-old Armbro Nash gelding on September 15 and is trained by Joe De Carlo.

Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Friday with post time set at 2:30 p.m.
