Worth A Whisper silences field in Class B trot.    
In the $9,000 Class B trotting events, Worth A Whisper ($3.80) led every step of the way in beating Hellrider by 2-3/4 lengths while later on the card, Jacked ($3.90) proved to be much the best in toppling Rough Tough Tested by 3-3/4 lengths.
The $9,000 Class B Pace was the closest of the three events as RD Skippy ($6.10) held on for a neck triumph over Confidence Man.
It was a great day for driver Kyle Swift as the 19-year-old reinsman put four victories into the win column, giving him 60 on the season. He swept both the $9,000 trotting races.
Worth A Whisper wasted little time from the rail and posted splits of :30.1, 1:01.1 and 1:30.2. Turning for home, Hellrider (Mike Caprio) was the main danger but couldn't catch Worth A Whisper (Swift). Classic Sunny (Kevin Cummings) was third.
Co-owned by Thomas and Diane Wescott and trained by Thomas Mays, it was the fourth victory in 20 starts on the season for the 8-year-old Worth A Whisper (Wishing Stone-Mariko Hanover). The victory pushed his seasonal earnings to $24,874 and $189,880.
In the second bracket, Jacked (Swift) stomped out splits of :29.2, :58.3 ,1:28.3 and easily rolled to a 1:57.4 clocking. He ruined the hopes of Rough Tough Tested (James McNeight Jr.) who took second place honors while Walter's Keepsake (David McNeight III) was third.

RD Skippy was able to beat a late closing Confidence Man by a neck in 1:55.3 over the fast track. 
With fractions of :28.3 , :58.2 and 1:27.2 in the books, RD Skippy (Kevin Cummings) had to stay strong until the wire, taking the score over Confidence Man (Shawn McDonough). Century Grizzly (McNeight III) took the show position.
Owned by Franklin Meier and conditioned by Angelo Nappo, it was the fourth trip to the winner's circle on the season for the 6-year-old RD Skippy (Sneaky B Skipalong-Art In Motion). The win jumped his earnings to $21,730 on the campaign and $165,570 in his career.
Kevin Cummings had a driving double on the card while Nappo and Jim Graham each posted two training wins.
