Making her 2014 debut, millionairess Voelz Hanover established a new Canadian season's record for distaffers with a 1:50.3 victory in a $30,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred on Friday night at Woodbine Racetrack.
Leaving from post two as the heavy 1-2 favourite, the Randy Waples-driven Voelz Hanover ($3) led her five foes through fractions of :27.1, :56.2 and 1:23.3.
Meanwhile, last year's New York Sire Stakes champion Social Scene (Jonathan Drury) advanced first over from fourth in her own season's debut, but leveled off in the stretch.
Voelz Hanover then held off a pocket-pulling D Gs Pesquero and Sylvain Filion by a half-length as they sprinted to the wire. Its No Secret and Phil Hudon finished over four lengths behind in third.
