Bartlett’s half-dozen began with a $12.60 early double, comprised of Hooves On First ($3.80) in the $8,500 first race pace (1:57) and Windsong Jack ($5.60) in the $8,500 second race pace (1:54.4).

Grounded ($10) won the $10,500 fourth race pace (1:56.4), while Mike’s Powerhouse ($4.90) won the $10,500 fifth race pace (1:54.2).

Wins five and six came in races seven ($14,000 pace) and eight ($16,000 pace), with Pam’s Legacy (1:54.4) and Spinarama ($6.10), respectively.

Bartlett’s seventh win of the evening came behind rank outsider Canaco Star ($61), who skimmed the cones from well back in the $14,000 pacing finale (1:56.1).

Bartlett, who drove in all 10 races, owns the early-season local lead with 31 victories.

That last-race longshot produced a Pick-5 carryover of $1,272.65 into Friday’s card (50-cent base wager, races six through 10).
