Tellmeaboutit and Michael Oosting got the last word in with their win in the $18,000 Open Pace Friday, June 10. The duo turned in the fastest time of the season at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, stopping the timer in 1:48.2.
Tellmeaboutit used his post two to his advantage early moving up to snag a seat third behind Brookview Bullet and John DeLong, the first leaders and Beaumond Hanover and Sam Widger, who were three wide at the quarter in :26.0 before crossing over to the lead. Beaumond Hanover led the way through the half in :53.1 and three-quarters in 1:20.4 before Tellmeaboutit moved to the outside to find more racetrack to utilize.
In the stretch, Tellmeaboutit hit another gear, inching up on Beaumond Hanover to score the win by a head. My House and Andy Shetler moved in for third.
