HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Wild Bill Kelso ($6.90) was the fastest in the two $53,500 divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for the 2-year-old colt and gelding trotters at Buffalo Raceway on Wednesday afternoon (June 29) while Kennego ($9.30) was just a step slower in his winning performance.

Wild Bill Kelso rallied late to nip Sevecheetah by a nose in 2:01 2 while Kennebago won the battle of attrition in scoring a 1-1/2 length victory over Daley Rep in 2:01.3 over the fast track.
While the participants in the Sire Stakes didn't break any track records, Met Your Request ($4.50) did by snapping a long standing mark. In the $15,000 Excelsior A Series, Met Your Request (Andy Miller) covered the mile in 2:01.0, eclipsing the old standard for 2-year-old gelded trotters of 2:01.2 set way back in 2013 by The Lindy Treaty. He beat Southwind Bud (Drew Monti) by 2-3/4 lengths.
Met Your Request (Met's Hall-Quest Blue Chip) is trained by Julie Miller and co-owned by the Andy Miller Stable and Caroll D. Huffman.
Wild Bill Kelso needed every inch of the track to hunt down Sevecheetah in the second leg of the NYSS. With Sevecheetah (Trond Smedshammer) firing out and putting up splits of :29.3, 1:01.0 and 1:31.3, the pocket sitting Wild Bill Kelso (Scott Zeron) tipped to the outside to take up the chase.
In the stretch, Wild Bill Kelso went wide off the final turn and was drifting out in the stretch but was able to snatch the victory away from Sevecheetah in the photo finish. Hit Like Crazy (Dan Daley) was third.

Owned by Runthetable Stable and trained by Jim Campbell, Wild Bill Kelso (Crazy Wow- Broadway Ell) has now earned $27,235 after collecting his first win in two lifetime starts.
In the other bracket, Kennebago had the rail and avoided four breakers early to score the gate-to-wire victory.
With Maximum Express, At Worlds End, Unique Style and Heza Scoundrel all doing the dance early Kennebago (Smedshammer) inherited a huge and uncontested lead, never looking back in beating Useyourlovetonight (Aaron Byron) by a dialed down 1-1/2 lengths. Daley Rep (Dan Daley) took the show spot.
Owned by Michael Andrew and conditioned by Smedshammer, it was the first victory in the first asking for the gelded Kennebago (E L Titan-First Class Act).
Crazy Fool ($3.80) was able to hold off the late charge from Makes Me Charlie in the lone $6,500 Excelsior B race. Claude Huckabone Jr. toured the track with Crazy Fool in 2:02.2.
Racing returns on Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. with an 11-race program scheduled.
