MARTINSVILLE, Ill. —
The half-mile race track was a busy place Thursday at the Martinsville Agricultural Fair.
Nineteen heats of harness racing were run after rain wiped out Wednesday’s second day of racing. Great Midwest Trot and Pace races were included on the card.
Long Term, a 3-year-old driven by Mike Rogers, won the Great Midwest Pace for its sixth career win.
Fox Valley Cameo, another 3-year-old driven by Jamaica Patton, won the Great Midwest Trot., winning for the second time in 20 starts.
Freddie Patton Jr. was in the bike for Fox Valley Shiner and the 2-year-old filly pacer won for the seventh time in eight starts in the Tim Wilson Jr. Memorial race that was on Wednesday’s schedule.
Patton also was the driver for 2-year-old colt pace winner Tower Power, also winning for the seventh time in eight starts.
