Mykindachip scored his 55th career win Saturday, March 2 at Miami Valley Raceway. It was the second straight win of 2019 for the Indiana bred son of Art’s Chip, who is working on $1 million in career earnings.
Trained by Ron Burke, Mykindachip is now 10 years old and still going strong. His latest win was in the $20,000 Open Handicap where he moved to the lead at the top of the stretch and pulled away for the win in 1:50.4 with Chris Page in tow. The gelding increased his career bankroll to more than $869,000 in earnings with the win, which was recorded in his 200th career start.
Owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC, J & T Silva Stables LLC, Weaver Bruscemi, and Lawrence Karr, Mykindachip was bred by John R. Miller of Topeka, Ind. His career best time of 1:49.1 was taken as an eight-year-old at Hoosier Park.
Earlier in the card, Indiana bred Geraldo was a winner in a division of the George Williams Memorial Late Closer. The four-year-old son of Rockin Image took control at the head of the lane and cruised home a winner by five lengths in 1:51.3 for trainer-driver Kayne Kauffman. Mark Bogen owns Geraldo and Melanie Wrenn is the breeder.
