Tookadiveoffdipper, the ultra-consistent five-year-old son of Always A Virgin, copped the $17,500 Open Pace at Hollywood Dayton Raceway on Saturday (Nov. 2) for his seventh win of the season.

Driver Brett Miller opted to take control early with Tookadiveoffdipper, speeding to the quarter pole in :26.4. Tookadiveoffdipper continued to a :55.1 half and three-quarters in 1:22.4 before sealing the deal in 1:50.4.

Pocket sitter Granite, the slight race favourite, tried to overtake the leader in the stretch but fell one length short. Former multiple Ohio Horse Of The Year honouree Dancin Yankee got loose late in the fray and closed for third.

Tookadiveoffdipper is owned by Jane Cross of Illinois and Mark Cross of Tennessee. The Virgil Morgan Jr. trainee surpassed the $100,000 seasonal earnings plateau with the victory.

The feature race win was one of four on the first dozen races for leading-driver Brett Miller. A race later he guided Rock Out to a 1:50.2 tally in a $20,000 claimer for trainer Morgan Jr. Earlier on the program Miller won a $15,000 claimer with Rush To Judgement, also from the Morgan Jr. barn, and lighted the toteboard with upset-winner Omega Cat for trainer Steve Brannan in a top-level condition pace.

Omega Cat's $85.40 payoff in the seventh race caused a $2,006 carryover in the track's 20-cent Hi-5 wager which prompts a $5,000 guaranteed Hi-5 pool when racing resumes at Hollywood Dayton on Monday afternoon, Nov. 4.
