Three-year-old male pacers Comes Home First and Blue Eyes Cowboy, both sired by Brandons Cowboy, dominated Sunday afternoon's $10,000 eliminations for the Alberta Sires Stakes Marksman leg at Alberta Downs.

Comes Home First, the second favourite in the first field, followed Sonic Spark (Travis Cullen) through fractions of :26.2, :55.3 and 1:24 before overtaking that foe in the stretch and drawing off by three and a half lengths for the 1:53.2 victory. Sonic Spark stayed for second while longshot Incognito Cowboy (Keith Clark) kicked home from the backfield to secure third place honours six lengths behind.

Jim Marino drove the Brandons Cowboy-Cinderella Cam colt to his fourth win from 10 starts this year for trainer Lance Ward and the J J J Stables of Aldergrove, B.C. Comes Home First now has over $50,000 banked in purses this season thanks in large part to his Brad Gunn Stakes victory and runner-up finish in the Alberta Plainsman Final earlier this year.
