Tetrick caps big night

Aqua Artist wins Invitational

ANDERSON, Ind. — The sound coming up behind driver Peter Wrenn might be human instead of equine.

Wrenn went into Thursday night’s action with a four-win lead in the Hoosier Park driver standings. After Friday’s card, Trace Tetrick had three wins to Wrenn’s one and that lead is down to two.

Tetrick did very well with fillies and mares on Friday. First he guided Don’t Flash Me to the winner’s circle in the $18,000 Open Pace. Then he capped his third win of the evening by piloting Aqua Artist to the wire in front in the $24,000 Invitational Pace.

In the Invitational, Aqua Artist left from post No. 7 and by the quarter pole had a short lead over Winning It, driven by Ed Hensley.

“I knew there was a lot of early speed inside,” said Tetrick. “I saw myself either in the lead or right off the lead.”

By the three-quarter pole, Aqua Artist was third as Ricky Macomber drove Gold Star Gidget to the front. At the top of the stretch yet another leader emerged. Betterluvnexttime got a head in front, and Wrenn was close to his first win of the night.

But Aqua Artist had another kick left, and she got in front of the field by a quarter length at the wire. The winning time was 1:54.1 and paid $14.20, $4 and $3. It was the 10th race of the season for the 6-year-old mare, and she has now won half of them. Aqua Artist is trained by Steve Bauder.

Betterluvnexttime was second and Continual Velocity, driven by Trent Stohler, was third.

The track was rated as fast despite several inches of rain dropped on the surface earlier this week.

“The track is in great shape,” said Tetrick. “They have done a great job with it. The wind is really tough out there. It is cold, but at least it’s not raining.”

Minutes later the snow and sleet pelted the area as Hoosier Park prepared to run its eighth and final race of the evening.

The race card was limited to eight races due to the concert by the Little River Band.

Today the Anderson track will have a 14-race card with the first post at 5:30 p.m. There are three races tonight with $24,000 purses apiece. One is an Open, and two are Invitationals.
