Trainer/driver Kelly Hoerdt put the pedal to the metal with Armycaptin Hanover in Tuesday’s $8,100 Open Pace at Century Downs, and the gelding never looked back en route to a second consecutive victory in the track’s top class.

Leaving from Post 1, Armycaptin Hanover rocketed out and carved out relatively easy, first-half fractions of :28.2 and :58. Icy Blue Scooter came after the leader on the way to the mid-way point, and they battled through a savage third quarter clocked in :26.4. The three-quarter marker flashed up in 1:24.4, and from there Hoerdt’s Armycaptin Hanover kicked home in :28 to win by a head over Icy Blue Scooter in 1:52.4. Third prize went to Tiempo Hanover.

Hoerdt shares ownership on the five-year-old son of Captaintreacherous-Allamerican Coed with Blair Corbeil of Beaumont, AB. It was the pacer’s fifth win of the year and the 17th of his career. He pushed his earnings over $90,000 with the triumph.

It was a memorable day at the office for driver Dustin Read who celebrated his first ever driving victory, and he did so in dramatic fashion.

Away eighth with pacer American Formula in Race 5, Read managed to rally the mare past seven foes in the final quarter of the contest en route to posting the 1:57.1 decision.

Read, of Edmonton, AB, also owns the seven-year-old daughter of Allamerican Native-Grecian Formula.
