Lookinforadventure lowered the Miami Valley track record to 1:51.4.

Driver Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. left alertly and opted to sit the pocket throughout most of the record-setting mile. Eventual runner-up I'm Feeling Good (Tony Hall) posted front-end fractions of :26.4, :55.3 and 1:23.4 before yielding halfway down the stretch to finish 1-1/2 lengths behind. Ardyne Ace (Jim Pantaleano) raced gamely from the outside post position in the field of nine to garner the show dough.

Green Acquisition Corporation owns Lookinforadventure, a 6-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover out of the Jate Lobell daughter Student Driver. The winner was recently moved to the Virgil Morgan, Jr. stable as he approaches the half-million dollar in career earnings plateau.

Racing will resume at Miami Valley Raceway on Wednesday night with a 6:30 p.m. post time.
