Rock The Look ran her win streak to three capturing the $15,000 Fillies and Mares Open Pace at Hollywood Dayton Raceway on Friday night (September 23). The 1:51.1 clocking lowered the track record for older pacing mares at Dayton, knocking a tick off Sectionline Aqua’s previous 1:51.2 standard.

The four-year-old Rockin Image mare’s docket now includes five wins and a pair of runner-up finishes in her last seven starts for trainer Joe Putnam, who co-owns Rock The Look with the Suttons Bay Racing stable.

Driver Jason Brewer was content to race last in the compact field of six through opening panels of :26.1 and :55. Just past the midway station, the winner set sail and began steadily picking off opponents one at a time. By the 1:23 third split, Rock The Look had moved up to fourth behind a first-up Watch N Be Watched (Josh Sutton) with Igottafeelinfran (Dan Noble) also in hot pursuit. At the top of the lane, those three mares fanned out for the stretch drive with Rock The Look besting runner-up Igottafeelinfran and Watch N Be Watched, who got the show dough.

Sent off as the odds-on favourite based on her recent form, Rock The Look returned $3.00 to win, while the stone-cold exacta paid $11.00.

Racing resumes Saturday night at Hollywood Dayton with a powerful 14-race program on tap. Excitement is building at the five-eighths mile oval as Friday, September 30 approaches. That’s the night the Grand Circuit stops in Dayton featuring the $150,000 Dayton Pacing Derby and the $160,000 (est.) Dayton Trotting Derby. Many of the top-rated and richest horses in North America are expected to enter, including the No. 1 ranked Wiggle It Jiggleit.
