Scott Price and “ Bo Knows To Win “ does just that
The first race on the card involved the amateur club, with the field of seven going postward, and with the starter in control, they headed towards the start of the race and the gate opened and off they went.
Immediately out of the # 2 hole, Wholeftthegateopen with Bill Krikorian went to the top followed by # 6 Goin Manstyle and Alex Richardson and in 3rdwas Winback Magic and Russell Lawson as they remained that way and stopped the teletimer at the ¼ in :28.1.
They headed by the clubhouse for the first time, with the leaders remaining in the same position and headed towards the half, as # 5 Bo Knows To Win with Scott Price pulled first over followed by # 6 Goin Manstyle and Alex Richardson in hot pursuit of him as they all headed to the half mile pole with Wholeftthegateopen still in command as they passed the half mile pole in :57.2.
They now headed down the backside and Bo Knows To Win, and driver Scott Price, tactfully moved up and was closing the gap over the new leader # 6 Goin Manstyle, who overtook Wholeftthegetopen and Bill Krikorian at the 5/8`s pole. It appeared that Bo Knows To Win was not going to fade away, as he continued to gain on the leader as they passed the ¾ pole in 1:25.4.
The question was could Goin Manstyle repeat for a second win in a row in the amateur race, we will have to wait and see how that plays out.
They now come charging around the far turn, with everybody trying to make a move down the stretch. Half way down the lane # 5 Bo Knows To Win
could not be denied as he finally was able to pass Goin Manstyle with a tremendous kick, that allowed him to win by almost 2 lengths,
with Tinys Million and Irving Bluestein, who came from way back to snag 3rd, with the winner stopping the timer at 1:56.1. The winning time is his fastest for the year, it`s also
Bo Knows To Win`s first win of the year, as he entered the winner`s circle. He was also the 2:5 favorite.
For Scott Price and Bo Knows To Win, it was truly the “ thrill of victory and not the agony of defeat,”
for the two of them this time. Scott Price of Wenham, MA owns and drives the horse with Steve Nason his trainer.
