HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Zipnthruthehall showed plenty of 'zip' in the stretch and captured the $8,600 featured pace at Buffalo Raceway on Saturday night (March 25) by holding off Jolt Of Whiskey by a half length in 1:57.4.
Starting a first over journey at the half mile marker, Zipnthruthehall ($3.80) and driver Ray Fisher Jr. were able to finally grab the lead at the three-quarter pole. They managed to hold off the late charge of Jolt Of Whiskey (Shawn Gray) who came up just short while Babe's I Scoot (David McNeight III) was able to win the battle for third.
