Jenny Lake held off all challengers to win the $7,000 Open Trot at Vernon Downs on Saturday (June 5).

Lucky June Bug led to the first quarter in :26.3 and faced no pressure to a :56 half. Jenny Lake made her move first over from third as they went around the final turn. Lucky June still led to three-quarters in 1:24.3.

Jenny Lake battled with Lucky June Bug as they went down the stretch. She shook lose in deep stretch but had to brace for a late charge from second-place finisher Credit List and third-place finisher Majestic Fire. Jenny Lake hung on to win in a lifetime-best 1:53.4.

Jenny Lake is a five-year-old mare by RC Royalty. She is owned by Carol Namiotka and Ed Namiotka, Jr. while trained by Paul Minckler. She is two-for-two in 2021 and now has 19 victories overall. Leon Bailey sat in the bike.
