Veteran trotter Aisling notched his first win of the season thanks to his 1:59.2 score in Thursday’s $7,000 Preferred 3 at Flamboro Downs.

Purchased for $44,000 from the January Select Mixed Sale at The Meadowlands, Aisling got away fourth while Jetcrest shot to the top and supplied the field with an opening quarter clocked in :28.3. Jetcrest was still in charge of setting the speed at the mid-way point in :59.3, but Trevor Henry had Aisling moving first over.

Aisling easily brushed to the top and took the field by the three-quarter pole in 1:29.1 before using a :30.1 final frame to seal the deal by 3-3/4 lengths over Spartan Victory. Jetcrest held on to finish third.

Sent off as the 1-2 choice in the seven-horse affair, Aisling won for the 37th time in his career while pushing his lifetime earnings over $630,000. The 10-year-old son of Conway Hall-Heaven Tonight is owned by Ecurie Richard Moreau Inc, Jessica Alexopoulos and Sam Angelopoulos.
