Mountaineer track report

Email

Thistledown-based trainer Miguel Feliciano shipped in three horses to run in high-priced allowance races at Mountaineer Park last weekend, and all three invaders won.

Feliciano sent out Ran South ($27.80), and Night of Delight ($25.40) for back-to-back wins against open allowance company on Saturday night's card. Feliciano saddled his stable star, Majestic Dinner, on Sunday, but had to settle for a dead heat as Majestic Dinner, last year's Best of Ohio Endurance winner, hit the wire together with local stakes winner Nature.

* Racing fans in West Virginia are beginning to learn what Penn National regulars have known for a long time: Anything Harry Thompson trains is a threat to win.

Thompson, the leading trainer at Penn National six of the last seven years, acquired High Flying Bid after the colt was claimed for $5,000 last November at Fort Erie.

Since coming under Thompson's care, the 4-year-old High Flying Bid has won six out of nine races, including an upset in last Saturday's $78,050 Waterford Park Handicap at Mountaineer Park.

High Flying Bid ($27) got up by a neck under Carlos Nieto to win the six-furlong stakes in 1:10.03, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 96. It was his fourth straight victory at Mountaineer.

Thompson ranks fourth in the nation for most wins with 378 through May 20.
