Hamburg, NY---Baileys Magic, a five-year-old Kadabra gelding, out of the Berndt Hanover mare Lexus Bailey, won the $10,000 Open Trot in 1:59.3, for owner Super Mile LLC, here at Buffalo Raceway Friday night (June 8). It was his tenth win in nineteen attempts this year, in what was the closest race of the night.
Baileys Magic ($14.40) dismissed by the bettors at 6-1, and driven by reinsman Dan Noble, cut all the fraction in the race, :29.4, 1:00.1, and 1:30. A :29.3 last quarter-mile put the winner a neck in front of second place finisher A Hay Luva Paige (Shawn Gray) at the wire. Serious George (Jack Flanigen), who was moving up in class, and looking for his fourth win in a row, came in third, just a half length away.
Trained by John Mungillo, the $5,000 share of the winning purse put Baileys Magic’s season bankroll at $50,313 and $89,271 lifetime.
