Wynnfield Flash proves you can go home again.
Wynnfield Flash made his first pari-mutuel start for his old and new trainer Charlene Polk at Rosecroft on Saturday night a winning one scoring in a nights fastest 1:54.4. Justin Brenneman worked out a great trip in a lively outer flow and pounced on a hard used Anything But Plain and was next seen in the winner’s circle after blow out victory.
Owner-trainer Charlene Polk had Wynnfield Flash as a youngster and had good success with him winning six of twelve starts and almost $30,000 before privately selling him. One hundred and twenty one starts and over $300,000 in earnings later, Polk saw him in a cheaper claimer at Dover Downs and re-purchased Wynnfield. After giving him about four months off, she qualified him on April 7 at Rosecroft and dropped him into the 8 year old and older handicap race. Wynnfield must have enjoyed returning to the scene of some of his early career success as he was the easiest of winner in a solid time.
Driver Donnie Russell had a driving double on the evening winning with Lyons Frank in the opener via a two hole trip and then returned to the winner’s circle with K J Hannah who relentlessly ran down the leader Art’s Chic and then held off a late charge from favored Angel’s Dragon.
