Despite sub-freezing temperatures Lookinforadventure scorched the new Miami Valley five-eighths mile oval in 1:51.4 on Sunday night to capture the featured $10,000 Open-Preferred Pace and lower the track record.

Driver Ronnie Wrenn Jr. left alertly and opted to sit the pocket throughout most of the record-setting mile. Eventual runner-up Im Feeling Good (Tony Hall) posted front-end fractions of :26.4, :55.3 and 1:23.4 before yielding halfway down the stretch to finish one and a half lengths behind. Ardyne Ace (Jim Pantaleano) raced gamely from the outside post position in the field of nine to garner the show dough.

Green Acquisition Corporation owns Lookinforadventure, a six-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover out of the Jate Lobell daughter Student Driver. The winner was recently moved to the Virgil Morgan Jr. stable as he approaches the half-million dollar mark in career earnings.

Racing will resume at Miami Valley Raceway on Wednesday night with a 6:30 p.m. post time.
