Hillexotic got involved early and he certainly got involved late en route to posting a blowout victory in the $60,000
Yannick Gingras hustled Hillexotic to the early lead, and after posting the :27.1 opening quarter he took a backseat to Amigo Volo in the backstretch. Amigo Volo went on to knife out middle intervals of :55 and 1:23.2 before being confronted by the pocket-popping Hillexotic.
Gingras went into attack mode with Hillexotic in the lane, and together they sprinted away from the others in a dazzling clocking of 1:50.3. Storm Is Raging was a well-beaten runner-up, while race favourite Amigo Volo weakened late and wound up third.
The five-year-old son of Muscle Hill-Exotic Destination hangs his harness bag in the barn of trainer Ron Burke. The gelding has manufactured a 4-5-1 record from 13 trips to the track this season for the partnership of Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura. The 14-time winner now boasts a bankroll that stands at $475,115.
