Pacers Sweet Deisel and Brookdale Bruiser captured Saturday’s $6,000 co-features at Vernon Downs.

Sweet Deisel ($12.40) flew home late for driver Dan Daley en route to grabbing the first $6,000 featured pace.

Golden Gun (Claude Huckabone, Jr.) took the lead just before hitting the first quarter in :26.1. He maintained the lead at the halfway mark in :55. Sometimes Said (John MacDonald) hit the three-quarter mark first in 1:23.1.

Sweet Deisel, who is trained by Dan Daley for owners Ann Mari Daley, James Crawford IV, and Crawford Farms Racing. was eighth at the half mile mark. He was seventh after three-quarters. The gelding weaved through the field in deep stretch and snuck by Golden Gun to win with a new lifetime best mile of 1:53. Golden Gun was second best with Golden Brit (Howard Parker) getting third money.

Sweet Deisel is a three-year-old gelding by Sweet Lou. It was his fifth win this season and ninth career victory.

Brookdale Bruiser ($13.60) popped the pocket in the stretch for driver John MacDonald en route to winning the second $6,000 featured pace.

Daliocity (Howard Parker) controlled all the early fractions of :27.2, :57.1 and 1:25.4, but Brookdale Bruiser, who is owned by the JP Stables and trained by MacDonald, followed until they reached the stretch. He looked like a rocket in deep stretch blowing by to win in 1:53.4. Daliocity had to settle for second. Poisonous (Jimmy Whittemore) finished third.

Brookdale Bruiser is a five-year-old gelding by Roll With Joe. It was his eighth win of 2019. He now owns 16 career victories.

MacDonald drove three winners on the night. He got his other wins with Jenny Lake ($18.20), and Lyons Johnny ($6.80).

Vernon Downs returns to live racing on Friday October 6 with a starting time of 6:10 p.m.
