Immortal Eyes, with Travis Dunkelberger aboard, wins for the 10th time in 12 starts at Charles Town in the Jefferson County Commission Handicap.

Immortal Eyes continued his sensational season as an 8-year-old sprinter when he wore down pacesetter Fearsome in the stretch to win the Jefferson County Commission Handicap, one of three $50,000 stakes on Friday night’s program at Charles Town.

Ridden by Travis Dunkelberger for trainer Damon Dilodovico, Immortal Eyes ($3) drew clear in the stretch to win the 4 ½-furlong sprint by 1 1/4 lengths in 50.67 seconds. It was the 10th win in 12 starts at Charles Town for Immortal Eyes, who is 6 for 10 this year, including a win in the $350,000 Frank De Francis Memorial Dash in his previous start.

Fearsome finished five lengths clear of third-place Brooklyn Cowboy, losing for the first time in five starts locally. The 4-year-old Fearsome defeated Immortal Eyes when they met earlier this year in the Charles Town Dash.

Managed Account ($3.60) collected his fourth win in his last five starts when he cruised to a 2 3/4-length score in the Governor’s Cup Handicap at 1 1/8 miles.

Strike the Moon ($4.80) ended a nine-race losing streak when she nosed out Hymn Note in the Municipalities Mayors Handicap for fillies and mares going seven furlongs.
