Ed Edwards’ Volo was a longshot winner for driver Allan Davis in Monday’s $18,000 Open at Harrington Raceway in 1:53.1.

It wasn’t long ago the seven-year-old Capital Request gelding was in $7,500 claiming races in 2010. Two years removed from bottom level claimers, Volo is following an $83,302 campaign with nearly $50,000 already in 2012 after his most recent win.

Trained by James Popo, Volo mounted his attack late after collapsing pacesetter Remus Blue Chip faltered as the outer flow began to take off. Volo hit his best gears late in deep stretch and held off a fast closing As Bad As Thunder for the win. Bad Rusty finished third.

It was the fourth win of the season for Volo and his first career win in Open company. He returned $61.40.
