One More Laugh Eyes 2011 Return Saturday Night at Vernon

Double millionaire One More Laugh is set to make his 2011 debut on Saturday night at Vernon Downs in the $10,000 Open Pace, slated as race 10 on the 12-race card.

The gelded son of Mcardle-Fancy Creek Funny has already begun prepping for the tough 4-year old campaign with two qualifying events at Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs on the 7th and 14th of April.

One More Laugh came away from both qualifiers winning in convincing fashion and will face one of his opponents from his last qualifier once again on Saturday night when he lines up next to Vlos.

In the qualifier, Vlos and Brian Sears cut through fractions of 27.3, 55.4, and 1:25 before Ray Schnittker popped the pocket and paced away from Vlos by more than six lengths to stop the timer in 1:53.1.

Vernon will host its second weekend of live racing on Friday and Saturday night with a post time of 7:00 pm.

This weekend's promotions will include a handicapping contest on Friday, along with My Space Saturday and Spin To Win on Saturday evening.
