Howard Taylor's Swan In Motion ($12.60) used a fierce late stretch charge to prevail in the $30,405 Open Trot on Wednesday, April 10 at Harrington Raceway.

Manatlas, riding a three-race win streak, made the early lead from post seven in :28.1 and maintained the top position through a half-mile in :57.2. Race favourite That Ole Bar Stool promptly mounted a first-over charge and Swan In Motion followed for driver Victor Kirby second-over to three-quarters in 1:26.4. At that point, the outside horses gained momentum as That Ole Bar Stool cleared the lead with Manatlas retreating and Swan In Motion closed ground steadily and nipped That Ole Bar Stool at the wire in 1:55.1.

The seven-year-old Swan For All stallion trained by Dylan Davis earned his third win of the year from nine starts. Swan In Motion now has 34 career wins and more than $730,000 earned in his career.

Ross Wolfenden, Victor Kirby, Trae Porter and Art Stafford Jr. each had driving doubles on the program.

Live harness racing will continue on a Monday through Wednesday schedule.
