My Revenuer, again handled by Brad Kramer, scored his second straight victory in Pompano Park's Open Trot, this one with an enhanced purse of $15,000.

The eight-year-old altered son of Revenue S used identical tactics as in last week's win, lolly-gagging at the back of the pack early before beginning his jaunt forward around turn two and grinding forward until the job was done-inside the sixteenth pole-stopping the timer in 1:54.

Royal Max, making his Pompano Park debut, finished second, three-parts-of-a-length away for George Napolitano, Jr., while Winding Hill finished third for John MacDonald, almost four lengths away.

At the outset, it was Uriel leaving with alacrity from the outside post to take command early with Shes All In settling in the garden spot and Royal Max third on the outside and gunning for the top spot and reaching the lead after an opening panel of :27.1. Royal Max continued to lead the way past the half in :56 and still enjoyed the top spot-although seeing pressure from Winding Hill-past the third station in 1:24.1.

Meanwhile, My Revenuer was following Winding Hill and, turning for home, was in full throttle as he collared the leaders in deep stretch.

"This was another dream trip for this horse,” said driver Brad Kramer. “He was very sharp in last week's win and maybe even a bit sharper this week as the half was a bit slower than last week but the mile a couple of ticks faster.”

Trained by Leopold Sawyers for owner Tom Petri, My Revenuer won for the 24th time in his career to send his lifetime bounty to $198,827.

In the $10,000 co-featured trot, Escuela, handled by Ed Hensley, returned to her form of late last season by circling up from far back halfway through the mile to score a photo finish win over favourite Sailer Eddie, driven by Kevin Wallis, in 1:55.3.

Lexis D J, prominent the entire route for Steve Condren, finished third while Diamond Dagger and Mckenzies Star earned the minors.

It was Sailer Eddie cutting the fractions of :27.4; :57.1 and 1:26.4 as Escuela dawdled back in seventh through the opening two panels before marching forward on the backside and tilting three wide around the final turn to get into contention turning for home.

From there, as Hensley put it, "she just kept grinding forward until she got it done."

He added, "She was good last week, too, but was going so fast she made a break turning for home. She was perfect tonight!"

Owned by the Hensleys-trainer Ashley and driver Ed-Escuela, a six-year-old daughter of ABC Garland, earned her first win of the year and 23rd lifetime to send her career earnings to $173,226. Escuela paid $13.60.

Other noteworthy trotting miles on Tuesday night were recorded by Lucid Thoughts and Lugar.

Lucid Thoughts pushed his lifetime bounty over the $250,000 with a 1:55.1 win for trainer-driver John MacDonald-the eight-year-old, owned by the J P Stables, winning for the 25th time during a career spanning 164 starts.

Gold Savage finished second for Mickey McNichol while Selena picked up the show honours for Kevin Wallis.

Lugar, trained by Mark Friedman for the Polo Stables, picked up career win number 29 with a very sharp win in 1:56 for driver Mickey McNichol.

Making a confident quarter move to the front, Lugar easily repelled Shawnee Magic (Tom Jackson) and Skyway Pippen (Dave Ingraham) to score by two lengths, sending his career bankroll to $227,466.
