James MacDonald went to the front and didn’t look back en route to a going away triumph with Spartan Victory in Thursday’s $7,000 Preferred 3 for trotters at Flamboro Downs.
The Brad Pittock-trained Spartan Victory shot to the top from Post 4 and successfully sliced out splits of :28.4, :59.4 and 1:29 before using a :29.2 closing panel to seal the deal by 3-1/4 lengths over Keystone Orion. Race favourite Holy Molie Maggie had to settle for the show dough.
The 1:58.2 clocking was a new season’s best for the seven-year-old son of Hard Rock N Roll-Kandys Kelsey, and the lion’s share of the loot lifted his lifetime cash stash to $121,124.
