Bolt The Duer Wins the Adios

Bolt The Duer used the lighting lane to win this year's edition of The Delvin Miller Adios in a world record 1:47.4 at the Meadows after getting a trip behind the leader A Rocknroll Dance who led the entire mile until the passing lane, though he couldn't be blamed for finishing second after going fractions of :25.1, :52.4, and 1:19.2 at the 3/4 pole.  Breakin The Law finished third.

As for Sweet Lou?  Not being able to get to the lead early in the race, it was all over for him as he was roughed up once he went to the outside to try to get the lead.  It was just a question of when he was going to start backing up as one thing we have seen about Sweet Lou  this year is the horse can't be roughed up.

So as the rest of the season has gone, there is no one dominant 3yo pacing colt or gelding this year in the big races and quite honestly, I like it this way.  It makes for exciting racing and good wagering opportunities for the fans harness racing does have.

Buckle your seat belts and get ready for an exciting second half of the stakes season.
