Headworth comes away with two wins
With the smell of corn dogs and funnel cakes lingering in the air, it was Mark Headworth who was doing work on the track as he was the only multi-winner in the first night of harness racing at the 175th Seneca County Fair Monday.
About 100 people enjoyed the racing Monday as most of the races came down to the wire.
Headworth won the second and 10th race.
Driving Cash Delivery in the two-year-old colt trot, he blew by the competition to take the race in a time of 2:05 4/5. In the one-mile three-year-old colt pace driving Dancin Fever, he crossed the finish in 1:58, which was the fastest time of the day.

In the first race of the day, the two-year-old filly pace, Skip De Mull won in 2:01 4/5, driving A Oliveinmymartini.
