A force at Fairmount for several years now, trainer Scott Becker has found his stride on the northern circuit within the last year. He won the training title at Hawthorne last fall, and stands on the precipice of taking the spring title when the meet ends tomorrow.
Four weeks ago, his horses swept the exactas in both sprint stakes for older horses, the Robert S. Molaro Handicap and the Third Chance Handicap. This week, he had two horses in each of the stakes races, the Milwaukee Avenue Handicap and the Peach of It Handicap. Matching his banner day from last month would be a tough order…but came very close. Becker won both races, and claimed the exacta in one of them.
Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, catch up on the stakes racing from Hawthorne’s nighttime card, and see what the connections of the top horses had to say!
