The four-year-old pacing stallion Linkjack Hanover was back to his old tricks on Sunday night (June 19) at Running Aces, as he set a new track record of 1:54 for his age, sex and gait.

As a three-year-old in 2015, he set a track record of 1:54.1, later lowering his own mark to 1:54 and then 1:53.2. The son of Allamerican Native is owned and trained by Jeff Ryan and has been driven by Rick Magee throughout most of his 31 career starts. Sunday's effort was Linkjack Hanover's 12th lifetime victory and pushed his career bankroll to $36,226.

The $7,500 Minnesota-Sired three-year-old filly trot went to Bombshell Betty (by SOS Lunar Eclipse), with Jim Marino aboard, in a 2:00.3 new life’s mark. She is trained by Justin Anfinson for owners Jesse DeLong and Tabatha Canarr. Bombshell Betty paid $5.40 to win.

The $7,500 Minnesota-Sired three-year-old colt and gelding trot went to The Winnin Dollar (by SOS Lunar Eclipse), who is now a perfect three-for-three in 2016. Driver Nick Roland left alertly from post six in the six-horse field and yielded early to let Margins Echo (Rick Magee) set all of the fractions. Roland sat patiently with his gelding and waited for room at the head of the stretch before powering by the front-runner late to win by a full length in 2:00.3, paying $4.60 to his backers.

The $11,000 Summit Preferred Trot went to Banker Volo (Nick Roland), for his third consecutive win here, trotting the mile tonight in 1:57.1 and paying just $2.40 as the overwhelming favourite. Ill Tell You What (Brian Detgen) was second, and Flashy Lady (Tim Maier) checked in third.

The $11,000 Summit Preferred Pace was a thrilling event, with Jazzmanian Devil (Lemoyne Svendsen) looking for his third straight win in the top pace. 'Moonie' sent Jazzmanian Devil right out of the gate from the outside post (six) to the front and set fractions of :27.3, :57.2 and 1:25, and was sharp in the lane as well, holding off a late charge from his pocket-sitting stablemate Ideal Art (Steve Wiseman) to win by a half a length in 1:52.4. The win was his 10th out of 20 starts this year. He paid just $2.80 at the betting windows.
