GRANTVILLE, Pa.--Tim Kreiser began 2020 the same that that he has ended the last six consecutive years, as Leading Trainer.
And he started his lead in 2020 in a dramatic way, by winning three races in one night on Jan. 2.
Winning three in one night has happened a few times," said Kreiser. "Let's go wire to wire as trainer."
Kreiser won both the first and second races on Jan. 3, first saddling Robert A. Derr's My Only Sunshine to win a $14,400, 6 furlong race for $10,000 claimers by a nose, and then saddling Derr's Just do the Math to win a $10,800, 6 furlong race for $5,000 claimers by 2 1/2 lengths.
His third win came in the sixth race, again for Derr, and this time with Venus Ramey in an $18,100, 6 furlong race for $16,000 claimers by 2 lengths.
"That was really strange," said Kreiser. 'I claimed Venus Ramey for $5,000, and mine was the only claim in for her. Then I moved her up to a $16,000 claiming price, and she was claimed."
Trainer Brandon Kulp claimed Venus Ramey for Cynthia Powers.
