Hot Shot Blue Chip became harness racing's newest millionaire after he won a stretch battle with Chapter Seven to take the $200,000 Credit Winner Trot in 1:51.2 on Friday night (Sept. 7) at Vernon Downs.
Owned by Thomas Dillon and trained by Jonas Czernyson, the six-year-old gelded son of Revenue S-Hustle N Muscle was driven to the victory by Corey Callahan. The win was the third in 14 season's starts and 19th lifetime for Hot Blue Chip, who has now banked more than $1.06 million in his career.
Mister Herbie and Jody Jamieson went to the front from the outside post four in this compact field, but yielded to Chapter Seven and Tim Tetrick past the opening quarter in :26.3, followed by Hot Shot Blue Chip in third and Arch Madness, driven by Trond Smedshammer, in fourth.
The 1-2 favourite then proceeded to post middle fractions of :55.3 and 1:24.4.
Callahan sent Hot Shot Blue Chip to the outside from third heading down the backstretch and was second on the rim as the field headed into the final turn.
From there Hot Shot Blue Chip shot to the front at the top of the lane and then held off a late rally from Chapter Seven to win in a photo finish in 1:51.2, just a fifth of a second off San Pail's all-age track mark of 1:51.1, set in last year's edition of the Credit Winner. Arch Madness finished third, while Mister Herbie settled for fourth.
Hot Shot Blue Chip paid $20 to win as the third choice.
"It's only a four-horse race and I knew I was going to get a shot at it at some point," said Callahan. "I left out of there a little bit [from the rail] just to get position and made Timmy go on to get to the lead, just to soften him up a little bit.
"I just wanted to sit as long as possible and as soon as I felt Trond kind of nudge off my back, I just went ahead and made my move and the horse did the rest. He's a super horse.
"This horse has a lot of trot to him. I mean you don't make a million dollars not being able to trot a quarter in :26. We were fresh when we came at them and we were ready to go."
