Apprentice Hanover dominated yet another $34,000 Preferred Pace at Woodbine Racetrack while lowering his own Canadian season's record to 1:50.4 early Saturday evening.

The four-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere romped to his ninth win in a row for Woodbine's leading owner Bradley Grant of Milton, Ont. His streak began back in November 2013 and includes a victory in the Cleveland Classic and six Preferred events at Woodbine.

After settling away third from post five through a :27.3 opening quarter, Apprentice Hanover and Woodbine's top driver Jody Jamieson swept to the lead down the backstretch. The overwhelming 1-5 favourite reached the half in :56.2 and raced to three-quarters in 1:23.1 before drawing away to another open-length victory. Early leader Mckinney (Sylvain Filion) finished second while Top Gear (Mike Saftic) followed in third.
