Nanticoke Racing Inc, Barry Spedden and Joshua Parker’s Almighty Johnson N ($16, Art Stafford Jr.) was a 1:56.1 winner in the $17,000 Open Trot Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.
The New Zealand-import had a slow start to his domestic career, after finishing off the board in his first three starts. The 8-year-old Majestic Son gelding has quickly turned it around however, with two straight victories for co-owner/trainer Parker. He left the gate quickly from post position two and assumed command where he would set fractions of 28.1, 57.3 and 1:27.1. Jammin Jack challenged first over and battled gamely through the stretch, but would come up a head short to Almighty Johnson. Theresademoninme finished third.
Allan Davis had three winners on the card. Mike Cole and Tony Morgan each had a driving double.
Live racing on the Delaware circuit now goes on a hiatus until the traditional Governor’s Day program (special 7 p.m. post time) during the Delaware State Fair on July 25.
