The Alberta Sires Stakes spotlight shifted to the three-year-old pacing colts and geldings on Sunday afternoon at Alberta Downs as they faced off in three $6,667 eliminations of the Alberta Plainsman.
In the first elimination, favourite Outlaw Last Chance ($3.30) overcame the outside post seven starting spot and cruised wire-to-wire to score his first win of the season by open lengths in a career-best 1:55.3 with Brandon Campbell aboard. Get Thereovernight and Donttelldaddy finished second and third. The grey Brandons Cowboy-Red Star Muffin colt is trained by Joe Ratchford for owners Gordon Baxter and Miranda Logan.
Jamie Gray's Sotally Tober ($3.50) released the parked outsider Oh Yeah after a speedy :26.4 opening panel before moving back out for the retake in the second elimination. The favourite then took a second quarter breather before beginning to draw away from the field with Comes Home First chasing him to the wire in 1:54.2, matching his lifetime mark. Regina Beach finished back in third. Gray co-owns the As Promised-Rain Drop Hanover gelding, who has now earned back-to-back victories, with Diane Bertrand and Robert Gilhespy.
