James Magno and Joseph Fonte's Incaseyoudidntknow ($2.40) was a 1:53.1 winner for driver Jim Morand in the featured $30,821 Fillies & Mares Free-for-All Handicap Pace on Tuesday, May 14 at Harrington Raceway.

The six-year-old Always B Miki mare settled in fourth off the early pace before gathering a first-over charge towards the half-mile in :56.1 in pursuit of leader Majorca N, who was looking for a third straight win. As three-quarters was reached in 1:24.4, Incaseyoudidntknow continued her forward momentum and edged clear of Majorca N at the top of the stretch, and held off Jody and Grandeur Seelster, who rounded out the trifecta.

Trained by Les Givens, Incaseyoudidntknow had won an opening leg division of the Bluechip Matchmaker Series at Yonkers Raceway mid-March and now has two wins from 11 seasonal starts. Coming off a close third-place finish in last week's Mares Open are Harrington, she earned her 32nd career win to lift her bankroll to $576,905.

The fastest winner on the card was Square Deal ($2.20), who blazed a 1:51.4 mile, a lifetime best, in a $19,863 conditioned event for female pacers with Montrell Teague in the sulky. Trained by Mike Hall, the four-year-old Heston Blue Chip mare has won half of her 10 seasonal starts.

Stephen Messick's Misty Coast ($2.10) won the sub-featured $21,918 Mares Winners Over in 1:53.1 for driver Art Stafford Jr. and trainer Givens.

Tony Morgan had four wins on the card, while Stafford Jr. had a driving triple.
