Silver Devil streaks to victory at Maywood; $50,000 Pick-6 for next Friday
Saturday, November 23, 2013 - by Tom Kelley, publicity director, Maywood Park

Melrose Park, IL --- The late season surge of Amy Giberson, Stephanie Winship, Carl Lacy and Monty Thompsons Silver Devil continued on Friday (Nov. 22) as the handsome roan gelding completely dismantled five other Illinois conceived and foaled 3-year-old pacing colts in a 6-1/4 length romp while taking the $15,000 Cole Muffler Stake at Maywood Park. The final time was 1:54.

Silver Devil and Casey Leonard were all alone at the finish of Friday's $15,000 Cole Muffler stake at Maywood Park.
Taking full advantage of a nice inside draw and the defection of his main rival, Mystical Walter, who was a judges scratch, the altered son of Duneside Perch-Armbro Wahine swept from third to first after watching Golden Nugget (Jason Brewer) and Fox Valley Norman (John Roberts) battle through an opening quarter in :27.4.

In command of the proceedings the rest of the way the Nick Giberson trained sophomore rattled off middle splits of :56.4 and 1:25.4 while putting daylight between himself and his competition.

Leaving his rivals in his wake on the final turn, Silver Devil sealed the deal with a :28.1 final quarter to post his 11th win in 26 starts this season. Monopoly Man (John De Long) rallied to be second while Colechester (Sam Widger) finished a distant third.

Unraced as a 2-year-old, the 1-5 favorite of the betting public returned $2.40, $2.10 and $2.10 while upping his record to 11-2-1 in 26 lifetime starts with earnings of $84,614.

The 10 cent Pick-6 wager went unclaimed for a third straight racing card on Friday night so there will be a carryover of $15,026 for the Friday (Nov. 29) program at Maywood Park. There is no racing on Thursday (Nov. 28) because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

With the three card buildup in the Pick-6, Maywood Park will offer a guaranteed Pick-6 pool of $50,000 on Friday (Nov. 29). That should provide some lucky player with plenty of extra shopping money for the holiday season.

Once again the Pick-6 can be played for as little as a 10 cent investment, giving all gamblers, regardless of the size of their bankrolls, a chance to play for a nice payday next Friday night.

Post time for the opener on Friday (Nov. 29) at Maywood Park is 7:10 p.m. (CST) and the fifth race, which kicks off the guaranteed pool action, is expected to go sometime around 8:30 p.m.
