After racing four straight weeks in the Ontario Sire Stakes Grassroots Series, what does the three-year-old pacing filly do during her off week from the stakes races?
How about heading on over to Grand River Raceway and beating up on some older mares in their $8,500 Preferred Handicap Wednesday night!
That's exactly when Medoland Lindeylou did. She was aided by Canada's leaving driver, Trevor Henry and leading trainer Richard Moreau.
She raced to the lead from post three and held off a first-over challenge by Windsun Kenda past three-quarters en route to the 1:55.1 triumph. The favorite paid $4.60 to win. Insincerity finished two and three-quarter lengths behind in second place, edging out the pocket-sitter Shellace.. Last week's winner, another sophomore filly Private Performanc, rallied wide from the backfield to finish fourth.
The bay filly by Stonebridge Regal is a four-time career winner with $86,746 earned. She is owned owned by Ohio breeder Tamara Hoovler and partners Dr. Robert Hutchison and Dr. Randall Hutchison.
