Dead_Heat_with_Golden_Terror__Anglebrook.JPGHamburg, NY--- Golden Terror, a five-year old Western Terror gelding, and Anglebrook, an eleven-year-old Artsplace gelding, put on a show down the stretch at Buffalo Raceway Saturday night (March 17), and when the dust was settled and the photo taken, both noses were on the wire, for rare $10,000 Open Pace dead heat in 1:56.1 on a unseasonably warm night, in which the track was lightning fast.


Golden Terror is owned by Terri L. and David C. Esposito of Buffalo, NY, and Anglebrook’s owners are Ron Louis and Paul Viele, both of Batavia, NY.


Golden Terror (Dan Noble), the favorite in the race paid ($2.80), while 6-1 Anglebrook (Shawn Gray) paid ($4.80).


The race set up with eventual third place finisher Mark It On Ice (Ray Fisher, Jr.) leaving sharply from the five hole, and hitting the quarter-pole in :29. Anglebrook, leaving from the pylons, re-took the lead, just past the quarter-pole, and hit the half in :58.1, and the three-quarters in 1:27.1.


Golden Terror, who settled in the back of the pack, made a three-wide move just past the three-quarter pole, and was the widest of all in the stretch.


It was an epic battle between the top two reinsman on the circuit, Noble and Gray.


The victory was win number four this year for Golden Terror, who is trained by the meets leading trainer John Mungillo, and win number two for Anglebrook, who is trained by Alex Giuliani.
