Beachy Dream remained sharp as a tack on Saturday night (March 7), as he registered his third win in four tries with an exciting head decision over Tullow N in Buffalo Raceway's featured $11,000 'Class AA' pace in 1:57.2 raced over a 'good' track.

Sitting in the pocket behind pacesetter and eventual third-place finisher Iluvtomakemoney, driver Kevin Cummings pulled Beachy Dream off the pegs just past the half. In the lane Beachy Dream battled Iluvetomakemoney to the wire and were joined late as Tullow N came from the clouds to create the three-way photo. The picture showed Beachy Dream up by a head while Tullow N was second and Iluvtomakemoeny third.

Cummings said of the first-over move, "Ray Fisher's horse [Iluvtomakemoney] is hit or miss on the front so I just wanted to play it safe." When asked if he saw Tullow N charging at the end, Cummings said, "I sure did see him coming but knew I had it at the wire."

Owned by Mike Torcello and conditioned by Gerry Sarama, it was the third victory in six appearances this year for Beachy Dream (If I Can Dream-Beachy Girl), a nine-year-old gelding. The win moved his bankroll to $21,450 and $260,030 in his career. He paid $5.30 to win.

Catch The Wave rode "the wave" to the winner's circle when taking a surprising head victory over Jims Great in the $10,000 Class A pace.

Surfing the outer flow, Catch The Wave took command at the three-quarter marker and turned back the challenges of Jims Great and Daylight Rush in 1:57.3.

Jim McNeight trained Catch The Wave (Jennas Beach Boy-Hrubys N Emeralds) for owner Mike Ventura. The eight-year-old gelding has produced $15,120 in earnings this season and $178,504 lifetime. Jim McNeight Jr. drove the $16.00 winner.

There was no mistaking Casimir Oops in the $10,000 Class A-B Handicap Pace as he collected a one-and-three-quarter length score over Drunkonaplane in 1:56.3.

Sitting fourth and getting the first-over trip up the backstretch the final time, Casimir Oops powered past favoured Percys Z Tam, coasting to the win. Drunkonaplane rallied late and took the place position with Percys Z Tam hanging on for third.

Owned by Sandra Lee Cory and trained by Gregory Johnson, it was the first victory of the season for the eight-year-old Casimir Oops (Astronomical-Casimir Hugs). The win pushed his 2020 earnings to $10,124 and $48,868 in his career. Mike Baumeister sat in the sulky.

Davis Jr. had a four-bagger in the bike with Baumeister and Denny Bucceri getting two each. Maria Rice had a triple while Steve Andzel III and Ron Beback Jr. conditioned two winners apiece.

Racing will continue on Wednesday night (March 11) at 5 p.m. with a 13-race card slated.
