Modern Gesture and driver Jimmy Whittemore ($4.30) won the $7,500 Winners Over Pace featured at the Vernon Downs miracle mile on Saturday (June 24).

The seven-year-old gelding by Artiscape charged late in the stretch to overtake Oh My Joepa (John MacDonald).

Oh My Joepa had gone right to the front and set fractions of :27, :55.3, and 1:24.1. Modern Gesture, who is owned by Mark Jakubik and trained by Richard Dow, was second at the top of the stretch and wore down Oh My Joepa in the stretch to win by a half-length in 1:51.3. Big Game (Josh Kinney) finished more than six lengths back in third.

Justin Huckabone won four races at Vernon Downs on Saturday night.

Live racing returns to Vernon Downs on Thursday (June 29) with an eight-race card starting at 6:45 p.m.
