Hardy-Bickmore-Gee Rule the Roost at Scarborough Downs
By Michael Sweeney for Scarborough Downs

Scarborough, Maine (Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010) - James Hardy, leading driver at Plainridge Racecourse, came to Scarborough Downs on Saturday and walked away with five wins from the day's 11-race program. All Hardy's wins came while driving horses for trainer Randy Bickmore, who trumped Hardy’s five-win performance by sending six winners to the post.  From those six winners, five belonged to prominent Maine owner, Kevin Gee of Falmouth.

"It was just a great day today, just a great day," said Gee. "A great day for Randy and a great day for Jimmy. I called Jimmy this week and asked him to come down, he said 'sure,' and we’re all glad he did."

The Bickmore bundle included Formula One A (Steve Nason), along with Showtime Sam, Rusty's Rascal, JC Lou Benjamin, I'm A Lucky Man, and Hot Don Ho Bluegrass, all of which were driven by Hardy. The fastest time of the day was clocked by JC Lou Benjamin at 1:55.4, 4/5th of a second shy of the track record for 4-year-old stallions, which was established by SK Hurricane and driver Danny Cyr back in 1995.

In other news, the Biddeford Downs campaign continues to steam a long with supporters lining up behind the proposal. The latest to join the roster is the Biddeford Career Firefighters.
