In the $9,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace, Pembroke Primo, ($3.50) a six-year-old Ditch Em offspring, made every pole a winning one beating five rivals in 1:57.3, for her fourth win of the 2010 campaign, for owner Mark Jakubik, at Buffalo Raceway Friday night. The winning time was a season’s best for Pembroke Primo.

Capably driven by Kevin Cummings, Pembroke Primo, cut all the fractions in the race, :29.4, :59.3, and 1:28.2. Three lengths back in second were Southwind Prairie and driver Ron Beback, Jr., while 17-1 long shot Enticing Attack (Troy Boring) came in third.

“She’s been feeling pretty good lately, so I put her on the lead,” said Cummings. “It was a nice trip.”

Trained by John Cummings, Sr., the $4,500 share of the winning purse put Pembroke Primo’s season bankroll at $35,645, and $231,329 lifetime.

In Friday’s $9,000 Open Trot, Manfromnantucket ($4.30) received a perfect second over trip with cover for driver Jack Flanigen, then unleashed a :29.2 last quarter-mile to edge second place finisher Redneck Reindeer (Ken Holliday) by a neck to register his second win of the year for owner-trainer Allan P McCarty of Hamburg, New York.

“I got a nice trip with cover, and he raced really well,” said Flanigen. “This puts him over $100,000,” added McCarty.

Finishing second were last week's Open winner Redneck Reindeer and driver Ken Holliday, while Meadows invader Oatmeister (Ron Beback, Jr.) came in the show spot.

The $4,500 share of the winning purse put Manfromnantcuket’s season bankroll at $15,340, and $101,119 lifetime.
