A round trip to the winner’s circle was celebrated by Marquise De Sarah during Friday evening’s 11-race card at Woodbine Racetrack, and that was music to the ears of owner/breeder Robert Bridges of Campbellville, Ontario.
The four-year-old daughter of Mach Three-Putnam Flyingbye, who was a winner in a career-best clocking of 1:53 in her previous outing at Woodbine in what was her debut for trainer Chad Milner, took over command shortly past the mid-way point of Friday’s $28,000 assignment and drew clear to win by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:53.2 for driver Luc Ouellette.
The suddenly-streaking lass got away third before going first-over on the way to the half-mile marker. She muscled to the front in the backstretch and took the field to the three-quarter pole in 1:25 before using a :28.2 kicker to win in 1:53.2. Hat Trick Honey was next best, with Perfectly Royal taking home the show dough.
