The Rohr Racing Stable and David Glazer made a wise investment when they claimed Betterlatethnnever for $30,000 on February 16 of this year because he has been paying them dividends ever since.

This ATM machine rewarded them again when he won the $16,000 Open Handicap pacing feature at Plainridge Park on Monday afternoon to notch his fourth consecutive victory.

Betterlatethnnever (Kevin Switzer, Jr.) left from post five, rambled right to the front in :26.1 and controlled the race from that point on. He led the short field of five to a :55.1 half and 1:22.3 three-quarters before turning on the jets to pull away by two at the top of the lane. From there under mild urging from Switzer, Betterlatethnnever stayed in command to win by an easy two-lengths in 1:50.4 - just one-fifth off his lifetime mark.

It was the ninth win of 2017 for Betterlatethnnever ($2.40) and seventh since his current connections claimed him. This eight-year-old gelded son of Western Terror is having a career year for trainer Heidi Rohr as he has now made $94,325 for his efforts.

In the co-featured $14,000 conditioned pace, Cherokee Hiflyzane (Eddie Davis, Jr.) overcame post seven and took the overland route to go from worst at the quarter to first at the wire in 1:53. It was the fourth win of the year for Cherokee Hiflyzane ($25.00) and owners Roger Farrar II and Barrie Farrar, who also trained the winner.

Kevin Switzer, Jr. had a driving triple and Eddie Davis, Jr. and Ron Cushing each doubled up. Trainer Heidi Rohr also sent two winners to visit the track photographer.

Racing resumes on Tuesday with post time at 4 p.m.
