Nuncio overcomes outside post in Matron 3-year-old male trot
Nuncio made it five wins in a row, grabbing the lead before the second turn and never yielding the position on his way to a three-quarter length victory over Harper Blue Chip in 1:54.1 over a “good” track in Thursday’s $200,350 Matron Stakes for 3-year-old male trotters at Dover Downs.

Hillustrious charged from near the rear of the field through the stretch to finish third. Father Patrick, the 1-2 favorite, went off stride soon after the start and was not a factor.

Starting from post eight, Nuncio was second to Harper Blue Chip in the opening quarter-mile, but took the lead as the horses passed the grandstand for the first time. Nuncio, driven by John Campbell, was the 6-5 second choice.

“I didn’t realize (Father Patrick made a break); I was concentrating on my horse and just keeping him to his task,” Campbell said.

Nuncio has won 11 of 16 races this year, including two jewels in the Trotting Triple Crown, the Kentucky Futurity and Yonkers Trot, and earned $1.39 million. He is owned by Stall TZ Inc. and trained by Jimmy Takter.

For his career, the son of Andover Hall-Nicole Isabelle has won 16 of 26 starts and never finished worse than second.

“He’s certainly one of the most consistent (horses) that I’ve been around,” Campbell said. “He just goes out and does his work. We had a little trouble last year sometimes rating him, but even when he was like that, he still was hard to beat.

“Jimmy worked with him, especially training down (this year) and made sure he came from behind all the time, and now he’s just turned into a professional where I can do whatever I want with him.”

Nuncio also won the 2013 Matron Stakes for 2-year-old male trotters.

“He gets around any sized track,” Campbell said. “When he’s come down here, he gets around it fine. He’s a horse that races good up near the front, and that works well here too.”
