Mike Simons sent Cheyenne Knight three wide down the backside to gain control of the field by three quarters in 1:22.3 but was towing In A Craze with him during every step. Down the stretch Meittinis angled In A Craze off of Simons helmet and paced by the leader in deep stretch to win in 1:52.2.
It was the sixth win in thirty seasonal starts for the 6-year old son of Astreos – U Drive Me Crazy for trainer Rob Harmon. The mile equaled the lifetime mark set earlier this year at Tioga Downs and with the win increased his seasonal earnings to more than $51,000. Cheyenne Knight (Mike Simons) hung on for second, while Diamond Star (Corey Braden) shook loose late for third.
