While the weather was cold, wet and nasty Tuesday afternoon (Dec. 10) at Monticello Raceway, Bruce Aldrich Jr. was hot as he drove five winners on the 10-race card.

Bruce started the rally early in the first race with Tweedledtweedledum, the Bo Sower’s trainee starting from post 6 who scored in 2:02 and paid $8.20 to win. Aldrich went on a tear in Race 3 and won the next three races.

Scootin For Joy ($4.50) notched her fifth win of the season for trainer Jim Doherty Jr. when stopping the clock in 2:02.3. Next up was Zone Blitz ($10.60), the former Ron Burke trainee who won in 1:59.3. Carters Casper then won his eighth race of the season in 1:57.1 for trainer Al Annunziata, going the fastest mile of the day on a track rated "sloppy".

The fifth win of the afternoon came in the last race where he scored a wire-to-wire victory with Future Life in 2:02.4. The win also gave Jim Doherty Jr., sitting second on the training standings, a training double on the afternoon.

The five wins on the afternoon gives Aldrich 193 wins at Monticello Raceway this season which puts him in third place for leading dash winners behind Jim Taggart Jr. and Michael Merton.
