Action Broadway Reaches Million Mark

Published: June 15, 2013 02:32 am EDT

Trotting mare Action Broadway closed out Friday night's harness racing card at The Meadows with a victory, which pushed her over the million-dollar earnings mark.

Sitting just $27 shy of the career milestone mark entering Friday's card, Action Broadway's victory in the $13,500 conditioned trot lifted her bankroll to $1,006,723.

Trained by Virgil Morgan Jr. for Ohio owner-breeder Kenneth Sommer, the six-year-old Broadway Hall-Photo With Molly mare picked up live cover from fifth before rallying three-wide into the stretch and kicking home in :28.4 to notch her 29th career triumph in 1:55.1. The 2-1 second choice, who was driven by Dave Palone, paid $6.60 to win by one and a half lengths over Dont Blink and favourite Greathallofchina.

The former U.S. Trotting Mare of the Year scored her biggest victories in the $349,000 Armbro Flight and $164,000 Muscle Hill Stakes during her 2011 award-winning campaign in which she banked over half of her total earnings.
