|Fox Valley Norman lowered his mark on Saturday|
With the action continuing to heat up on the backstretch, Oosting maneuvered his charge to the outside where they began to carve into the advantage of Fox Valley Action (Todd Warren) as that sophomore put up middle splits of :55.1 and 1:23.4.
Through the stretch a determined Fox Valley Norman eventually wore down the pacesetter, sealing the deal with a :27.2 final quarter-mile to post his third win in 19 starts this season. Silver Devil (Casey Leonard) rallied late to finish second while Fox Valley Action held on for third.
Sent off at 8-1 by the betting public, Fox Valley Norman returned $18.20, $5.40 and $3.40 while upping his career bankroll to $74,708.
