(NEW KENT, VA) — Indescribable won his second straight and had his fifth consecutive impressive outing in Saturday’s featured $4,250 conditioned pace at Colonial Downs.
Owner/trainer Gerald Longo, who had been in the sulky for all three of Indescribable’s Colonial starts, opted to have leading driver Cory Braden drive Saturday. The move paid off as the 6 year old Cole Muffler gelding wired the field in a new life mark of 1:50 3/5. Braden’s charge triggered quarter panels of :25 3/5, :54 2/5 and 1:23.0 before crossing 2 ¼ lengths ahead of runner up Sharp Shuttle. He earned his eighth win of the season and 17th lifetime victory.
A keen race in in the fall driver standings continued to develop between leader Corey Braden, Ronnie Wrenn Jr. and Chris Page, who did not compete at Colonial Saturday. Braden entered the weekend with 17 wins while Page had 15 and Wrenn was two back with 13.
Wrenn got to the winners circle four times Saturday while Braden scored a hat trick. Heading into Sunday’s card, Braden leads Wrenn 20 to 17. The unique aspect to the battle is that Wrenn only drives in Virginia on weekends so his win total has come from only five actual race programs.
