Intimidate

Returning to the races after a two month layoff, Maple Leaf Trot champion Intimidate was victorious in the $34,000 Preferred Trot featured on Saturday night's harness racing card at Woodbine Racetrack.

With the support of the betting public behind him, Intimidate was sent postward at odds of 8-5 and paid $5.50 to win. Driver Sylvain Filion steered the near-millionaire to the fourth victory of his five-year-old campaign for trainer Luc Blais.

Flanagan Memory (Chris Christoforou) left for the lead over Fearless Man (Rick Zeron) with Intimidate crossing into the three-hole from his post nine starting spot.

The top two trotters traded turns on the lead through opening fractions of :28.1 and :57.2 before Intimidate brushed by, taking over into the final turn and reaching three-quarters in 1:25.2.
