Trainer Gord McKnight's stable has been perfect for the month of February with Spartan Victory being his latest to turn in a winning performance in Wednesday's featured $7,000 Preferred 3 Trot at Flamboro Downs.
McKnight drove the four-year-old trotting mare Cause I Can down the road to a dead-heat win (with Neils Golden Girl) in the ninth race and turned the reins over to James MacDonald in the 11th dash to complete his flawless evening at Flamboro.
With MacDonald aboard, seven-year-old gelding Spartan Victory sat a pocket trip and prevailed up the passing lane by a quarter-length over the on-coming Cracker Zack in the Preferred. The winning time was 2:03.1 over the 'good' track, which was rated two seconds slow. Blazing Shot, the longest shot on the board at 81-1, came from last to show in the final quarter.
