Friday Advance

Open Pace, Bill Conlin Prep highlight program

Friday night’s Cal Expo harness action will include an Open Pace, with a well-matched field set to face the starter, and the Bill Conlin Prep.

An 11-race program is on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post set for 6:10 p.m. The Open Pace goes as the third race, while the Conlin Prep will occupy the sixth-race slot on the evening.

Looking ahead to Saturday night, the Alan Horowitz Memorial Pace will hold the spotlight with last week’s Elimination winners Scary Harry and Brighten Your Life headlining that contest. Scary Harry has posted four straight impressive victories at this meet for owners Kenneth Seastrom and Chip Lackey, with Lackey doing the driving and training.

The bay performer was winless in 27 starts on the year when he arrived here in November, but has been on a tear ever since and has not come to closing in his four trips to the post. Despite having the demanding No. 9 slot in a division of last week’s Horowitz Eliminations, Scary Harry was sent off the 3-5 choice and made it look like a gift.

Parked to the lead at the half, he took complete control from that point and waltzed home with six and three-quarter lengths to spare in a 1:54 4/5 mile.

There will be no live racing here next week, with the trotters and pacers returning to action on Friday, December 28. There will be mandatory payoffs on all wagers Saturday night.
