In the co-featured $9,000 Open Trot, reinsman Ray Fisher, Jr. made it to the winner’s circle for the second time on a beautiful spring night with a fast track, steering Cade Callihan, a seven-year-old chestnut gelding by Ilooklikemymom, to his second win of the season in 1:59.3, a new season’s best, for the Cadesway Stables here at Buffalo Raceway on Friday, June 5.

Leaving from Post 4 in the field of seven, Cade Callihan ($5.60) made every pole a winning one setting all the fractions in the race, :29.2, :59.3, and 1:29.4. A :29.4 last quarter-mile put the winner 3-1/2 lengths ahead of second place finisher, and last week’s Open winner, Speed Pilot (Tom Agosti). Craiger (Rich Mays) came in third.

Trained by Jim Graham, the $4,500 share of the winning purse put Cade Callihan’s 2009 bankroll at $21,680, and $141,482 lifetime.

In the $9,000 Filly and Mares Open Pace, Jezzabell Hotspur, a seven-year-old Anthony P bay mare, won for the eighth time this year, with regular driver Ken Holliday in the sulky. Owned by Betty Tauber, Jezzabell Hotspur ($3.20), covered the mile in 1:57.4

Setting all the fractions in the race, :29.3, :59.2, and 1:29.2, Jezzabell Hotspur and Holliday cruised to a two-length victory over second place finisher Pembroke Primo and driver Kevin Cummings. Spacie Jessie (Jim Dunn) came in the show spot.

Trained by Ken’s wife Sherri, the $4,500 share of the winning purse put Jezzabell Hotspur’s 2009 bankroll at $49,095, and $240,704 lifetime.
