Peenie found out if at first you don't first succeed, try, try again.

After starting three times off the rail in his last four starts, Peenie attempted to go wire-to-wire in each start but couldn't complete the task.

But Saturday night (March 21) in the featured $9,500 conditioned pace at Buffalo Raceway, driver Kevin Cummings gave Peenie another chance on the front end and he passed the test with a length victory over Giant Sculpture in 1:57 over the sloppy track.

Peter Pumpkineater briefly took the lead in the race to the opening quarter pole, but Peenie wasted no time in re-taking and reaching the half in a brisk :57.4. The closers were in perfect position to challenge in the stretch, but Peenie showed no quit and posted the win over Giant Sculpture (Shawn Gray). Mach Stockn Barrel (John Cummings Jr.) finished in third.

The victory was the first in eight tries this season for Peenie (Real Artist-Tre Cress) and the 50th of his career. Co-owned by Decker's Corner Stable and trainer John Mungillo, the 10-year-old gelding has now earned $12,470 in 2015. His lifetime earnings climbed to $654,128.

Racing will resume on Wednesday night with a 12-race card set for 5 p.m at Buffalo Raceway.
