Well To Do Guru captured Maywood Park’s $35,000 Egyptian Stake in a wire-to-wire, heart-stopping1:52 on Aug. 26, continuing to prove he one of the toughest free for all pacers on the Chicagoland harness racing circuit.
Owned by James Gorman and driven by Casey Leonard, the 7-year-old altered son of Richess Hanover-Guru’s Girl-Guru, confidently paced through fractions of :28, :56.1 and 1:23.2 on the half-mile oval, before posting a :28.2 unchallenged final panel.
The Terry Leonard-trained gelding strode under the wire nearly five lengths ahead of his nearest rival, Ice Man Cometh, while Fort Silky nailed third-place honors.
Well To Do Guru pushed his seasonal earnings to $12,794 with his seventh victory in 16 starts this year. His career earnings now stand at $446,208 from 113 lifetime starts that have the gelding winning 26 races, with 27 seconds and 20 thirds to his credit.
