An incident passing the stands first time prompted the judges at The Raceway at Western Fair District to declare a “No Contest” midway through the sixth race on the 11-race card Wednesday night (Feb. 15).

Driver Travis Cullen recouped several lengths with Patrick Bissett trainee Hes Got The Money coming off the second turn and started to rev first over after pacesetter Coronaonthebeach coming to the half. But Hes Got The Money started to slip stride and eventually broke into a gallop, which then became a stumble that brought the horse and Travis Cullen down. The backfield easily averted Cullen and Hes Got The Money and the stewards horned for a No Contest as the field entered the third turn. Per reports from Western Fair District, Hes Got The Money was collared without incident and both he and driver Travis Cullen emerged unscathed.

The $9,000 featured pace on Wednesday night fell into the hands of odds-on Arizona, who protected her pylon position to lead pillar to post in 1:57.4. Mike Timpano trains the four-year-old Up The Credit mare for owners Wendy Warren-Timpano and Herman Bardoel. Tyler Borth engineered the front-stepping drive to give the mare her seventh win from 16 starts while pushing her bankroll to $50,160.
