ATLANTA, ‘BILL’ GRADUATE AT BIG M

Friday, June 21, 2019

Driver Corey Callahan likely won the race during the initial quarter, extending Six Pack through an opening split of :27.4. “I was trying to make him work a little bit into that first turn,” said Callahan.
In mid-stretch, Callahan tipped the son of Swan For All-CR Dixie Chick out of the pocket with an eighth to go and wore down Six Pack to record his 18th lifetime win in 42 starts. 
“I thought we were going to get by,” said Callahan, who was fortunate to pick up this drive. “I really lucked out. He’s gone through a couple of drivers but I really didn’t have a horse for this class, so it worked out well for me.”
Fiftydallarbill paid $8.00 as the second choice in the wagering for trainer Katricia Adams. His final clocking of 1:50.2 equaled Greenshoe (May 31) and Atlanta (last Saturday) for the fastest trotting mile of the year in the spot.
A LITTLE MORE: Caviart Ally was no doubt glad to not have to face Shartin N (whom she went up against in each of her last three starts) and took it out on her foes in the third leg of the Rainbow Blue Series, stopping the clock in a lifetime-best equaling 1:48.3 while 1¾ lengths in front of Apple Bottom Jeans. The Brett Pelling trainee, who was driven by Andy McCarthy, returned $3.40 as the 3-5 favorite. … Speaking of favorites, eight visited victory lane during the course of the 13-race card. … One sharp player wagering into the Twin Spires hub had the only ticket to survive six legs of the 20-Cent Survivor Pick-10 and walked away with $8,960. … The fifth race 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five did not result in a single-ticket winner, bloating the carryover to $115,221. … All-source wagering totaled $2,337,789. … Racing resumes Saturday at 7:15 p.m.
