Driver John MacDonald and Oh My Joepa ($7) won the Vernon Downs feature pace at the miracle mile, and MacDonald added four other wins to his Saturday night total.

During the $7,500 Winners Over feature, 2-1 favourite Golden Gun (W. Bart Dalious) took charge and put up fractions of :26.1, :56.2 and 1:25.1. Oh My Joepa sat in the pocket going around the oval at the miracle mile. It was Apollo Seelster (Andy Gardner) who made the first move going first-over to take a slight lead, but Oh My Joepa wore him down to get the narrow win in 1:52.3 during race nine. Golden Gun held on third.

MacDonald also took big longshot Dewey Take Credit ($71) to a victory in race six and he won race seven with Dragon Fever ($15). In race 11, he took Three Handbags ($5.20) to victory lane. In race 13, he charged late with Cooper Beach ($4) to get his fifth win.

Live racing resumes at Vernon Downs on Thursday night (July 13) with a nine-race card starting at 6:45 p.m.
