Fly Jesse Fly equalled Northfield Park’s track record for five-and-up trotting geldings when he won the $19,000 Open Trot in 1:53.2 on Sunday (September 2).

The mark was set by both Obrigado (Mark MacDonald) in 2016 and also equalled by Cimeronken (Aaron Merriman) in 2018.

Jim Otto of Jefferson, Ohio trains and co-owns the trotter with breeder Robert Sidley of Painesville, Ohio. Chris Lems was in the sulky for the winning drive.

Fly Jesse Fly (Jailhouse Jesse-Flying Rae-Pegasus Spur) started from post two. He left from the gate and led every call through fractions of :26.4, :55.3, 1:24 and 1:53.2, besting his competition by 2-1/4 lengths.

Fly Jesse Fly now has six wins in 21 starts this year. Sunday’s victory represents his 21st career score and bolstered his bankroll to $410,445. He returned $10 to win.
