It was just two weeks ago that Dontch Remember put in a winning performance over a 'sloppy' track at Buffalo Raceway. She didn't forget how to do it again, helping kick off a five-win night for driver Ray Fisher Jr.

Taking the lead just before the opening marker, Dontch Remember ($5.80) splish-splashed her way to the winner's circle with a convincing one and three-quarter length decision over Ding in the first race $7,400 pace for the mares on Wednesday night (Feb. 24).

Playing give-and-go with Ding, Dontch Remember and Fisher Jr. cut the fractions with splits of :31, 1:01.3 and 1:32.1. In the drive to the wire, no one had the answer for the front-running winner as Dontch Remember easily sailed home in 2:01.4 over the sloppy track. Ding (Ron Beback Jr.) held on for second with Kisses N Kicks (David McNeight III) finishing third.

Owned by Michael Torcello and trained by Gerry Sarama, Dontch Remember (Western Terror-Dreamside earned her second victory in five tries in 2016. The win moved her seasonal earnings to $7,000 and lifetime bankroll to $132,163.

Fisher Jr. led the way in the sulky on the soggy night with five victories while Jack Flanigen and Truman Gale each had two wins.

JD Perrin led the trainers with three victories while Ryan Swift and Jerry Nugent Jr. each produced a pair.
