Canyon Wind made it three in a row in the featured $42,500 Open pace on Saturday night (April 23) at the Meadowlands.

Canyon Wind emerged the winner of a tight photo finish over Boulder Creek.

Canyon Wind cleared the lead from Eaton Road Kill past the opening quarter and took the field through middle fractions of 54.2s and 1.22.3, while a game Boulder Creek had to grind out a first-over trip.

The two horses matched strides in deep stretch, but it was the tenacious Canyon Wind, driven by David Miller, who prevailed by nose in 1.50.1.

It was ¾ of a length back to Eaton Road Kill, who made a late bid along the rail.

Trained by Steve Elliott, Canyon Wind improved his 2005 record to five wins in 12 starts.

The 5-Year-Old son of Cambest has banked $434,306 lifetime for Schoor-Racing Stable of Colts Neck, New Jersey and Val D’Or Farms of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey.
