David and Misty Miller's Autumn Escapade ($13.00) took advantage of moderate fractions and minimal pressure to score a two-length victory in Friday afternoon's $32,000 Open Handicap Trot at Harrah's Chester.

Driven by owner David Miller, the five-year-old Victory Sam mare floated toward the front on the first turn, sitting two-wide behind a developing pace, moving forward only as favourite Looking Hanover (Yannick Gingras) cleared the front through a moderate :28.2 first quarter.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, Autumn Escapade cleared the lead, and it was no looking back from then on out. She controlled intermediate fractions of :56.1 and 1:24.3, and no rivals got any closer to her than the pocket-sitting Looking Hanover throughout. She proved a convincing two-length winner in 1:53.2 over Looking Hanover, while the first-over Stand Guard (George Napolitano) mustered a third-place effort.

Jonas Czernyson trains Autumn Escapade, who has two wins and four seconds on her eight-race 2010 record and $58,690 in earnings.
