Although Eddie Davis, Jr. hasn’t had as many starts at Plainridge Park this year as he’s had in the past, there’s no question he is still one of the craftiest reinsmen to regularly compete in the Commonwealth.

On Monday Davis illustrated that point when he scored a driving triple that included wins in both feature races.

In the $16,000 Winners-Over pace, Davis directed Bet You from post four and hit the pylons while One To Draw To (Shawn Gray) left hard in :26. But his passive attitude was short-lived as he rolled Bet You to the outside past the three-eighths and motored up towards the leader.

In a grinding fashion, Bet You inched his way towards One To Draw To and by the 1:22.3 three-quarters was dead even with him. The two shadowed each other around far turn but by the head of the stretch, Bet You had taken the lead and extended it to two lengths. He hit the wire by himself and stopped the clock in 1:51, which equalled his seasonal mark.

It was the fourth win of the year for Bet You ($3.00) who is owned by Scott Dillon and trained by Joe Nelson.

And in the $12,000 conditioned undercard pace, Davis took control at the start with Attention Please and never let go. Attention Please set fractions of :26.2, :55.2 and 1:22.3 while never letting anyone get closer than a length. Rounding the final bend and heading down the lane, Davis provided some moderate urging to keep him on task but Attention Please didn’t really need it as he cruised home an easy winner in 1:51.3, which was a new lifetime mark.

Attention Please ($15.40) also registered his fourth win of 2018 for owner Kathleen Brewer and trainer Timmie Griffith.

Davis’s also won with Rapid It Up Art (1:54, $5.20) who completed the hat trick.

Once again, no one hit the Wicked Hi-5 Pentafecta wager in the sixth race and as a result, there is a large carry over pool of $10,931 in the sixth race on Tuesday afternoon (July 17) when live racing resumes at Plainridge Park. Post time for the first race is 4 p.m.
