FORMER Australian pacer Shoobee Doo captured last night’s Featured Open Pace Monday at Harrington Raceway.
Driven by Corey Callahan, the son of Shoobee’s Place grinded away first-over at pacesetter Keep On Rocking and edged clear in the stretch for his eighth win of the year.
Keep On Rocking – also Australian-bred – held second, with Scuola Hanover gaining late for third.
Shoobee Doo covered the mile in 1:52.3.
It was the 25th win for Shoobee Doo, which was first-up for five weeks for trainer Dylan Davis, who co-owns the gelding with Michael Casalino.
It was a speedy night around the half-mile oval as two horses blazed to sub-1:52 miles on the undercard, including New Zealand-bred pacer Justasec.
With Pat Berry in the cart, Justasec stopped the clock in 1:51.4.
Art Stafford and Art Stafford juniors Calvin K was a 1:51.3 winner in an $11,000 conditioned event.
