The featured dashes during Running Aces' Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 23) program were a pair of $11,500 races for juvenile trotters.

The colts and geldings division was won by the heavily-favoured Rush To The Bank (Nick Roland, $2.20), who was never in doubt while posting a two-length, gate-to-wire score over Oh Danny Boy and Ice Titan in 2:02.1. The victory made it five in a row for the clear leader in the division, who is also the likely favourite for the Minnesota Day of Champions program, which will take place on October 3.

Rush To The Bank is a gelded son of Banker Volo, is owned by Jeralene Roland and Vickie Rush, and is trained by Dan Roland.

The filly division was won by Coatofmanycolors ($27.40), who rallied from well back to get up for a one-length tally in 2:02.1. The victory was a maiden breaker for Coatofmanycolors, who was making just her second-ever start. Its So Fluffy was home second and The Royal Queen checked in third.

Coatofmanycolors is by Tymal Templar and is owned and trained by driver Jenni King.

Justlikehim (Jacob Cutting, $14.80) trotted to a new career mark of 1:54 in the $8,500 Open Handicap Trot. He converted a pocket trip into a three-quarter-length tally over Magic MVP and Pridecrest. Justlikehim is a five-year-old gelding by My MVP and is owned by Orlando Nevarez and trained by Edwin Quevedo. The 1:54 mile was just one-fifth of a second off of the track record.

Driver Steve Wiseman led the program with two winners and trainer Kathie Plested-Wiseman registered two winners, as well.

The Pick-5 Jackpot now stands at $14,916.02 for Saturday (Sept. 26).

Live racing will continue at Running Aces through October 4, with action four days a week at 1:00 p.m. (CDT).
