Obrigado Defends Crawford Title, 'Hannelore' Surpasses Million Mark
Obrigado successfully out-duelled Resolve to defend his title in the $193,000 Crawford Farms Open Trot while top trotting mare Hannelore Hanover surpassed the million-dollar mark in career earnings with a a strong victory in the co-featured $170,000 Muscle Hill on Friday night (August 26) at Vernon Downs.

Mark MacDonald drove Obrigado to a career-best 1:51.2 victory in the Crawford Farms Open Trot for trainer and co-owner Paul Kelley.

Musical Rhythm fired across the track from post nine to take the lead first before the turn into a :26 quarter, but his lead was short-lived as 1-4 favourite Resolve quickly swept to command. Obrigado was following hot on his heels and took over at the :55.1 half-mile mark. However, Resolve moved right back out with JL Cruze looming to his outside and regained a short lead as they raced past three-quarters in 1:23.4. Obrigado fought back around the final turn and the battle continued down the stretch with the defending Crawford champion ultimately persevering over Resolve by a quarter-length in 1:51.2. Flanagan Memory came flying late on the far outside to finish third over JL Cruze.

"It was really kind of almost a replay of last year's race in a lot of ways -- maybe a different cast of characters, but it was the same kind of battle," noted Kelley after the race. "My horse went almost an identical type of trip.

"I've been doing this too long and you never envision how it's going to go," he added. "We made a little subtle bridle change with him, but outside of that, you just never know how it's going to go."

The six-year-old Boy Band-Malimony gelding has earned top-three finishes in 11 of his 12 starts this year while banking over $535,000. He boasts stakes wins in the Maxie Lee, Charlie Hill, Cleveland Trotting Classic, and now Crawford Farms Open among his five seasonal victories. The $1.2 million career earner is owned by Paul Kelley Racing Stable, SRF Stable, Linwood Higgins, and Stable 45.

"He's a great horse. We're very, very luck to have him," said Kelley, noting the countless hours Obrigado's caretaker, second trainer and blacksmith spend with the talented trotter. "But the horse is just a great animal. He takes care of himself and if he gets beat one week, it doesn't matter -- he comes back, he shows up, he just always tries."

Kelley confirmed that Obrigado's next stakes assignment will be the Maple Leaf Trot at Mohawk Racetrack where he could face potential supplemental entry Hannelore Hanover.

"She's a great mare, she just put on a hell of a performance," said Kelley of Hannelore Hanover. "It's great for harness racing to see a great mare like that. So, you know, if we have to face her, that'll be great."
