Mr Web Page scored his second win in three starts in the month of June at Vernon Downs in the $10,000 feature race on Friday.

Both of Mr Web Page's wins have come at the Open I trotting level and both have come with trainer/driver Roman Lopez in the bike.

Lopez sent Mr Web Page right to the front at the start, but had to sit the pocket trip after War Hero (Howard Okusko Jr.) rolled up to take the lead before the field made it to the backstretch. War Hero then proceeded to dictate matters until the field made it to the stretch. At this point, he drifted away from the inside, which allowed Mr Web Page plenty of space to rally up for a victory by a head in 1:54.4. A Penny Earned (Chris Lems), who was sent off as the favourite in the race, followed Mr Web Page up the inside to claim third-place from Evil Urges (Jimmy Whittemore). Evil Urges actually attacked to the outside of War Hero after the half-mile mark, but his effort stalled and he had to settle for fourth.

The complete order of finish for the Friday feature was: Mr Web Page, War Hero, A Penny Earned, Evil Urges, Pollux Blue Chip, My Revenuer, Naughty Not Nice.

The fractions were :28.2 for the quarter, :58-seconds for the half and 1:26.1 for three-quarters.

Mr Web Page (Muscles Yankee-India Hall) is owned by Helping Hands Stables of Woodburn, Indiana.
