Falcor Bluestone persevered from the pocket with broken equipment in Friday's featured $7,000 Preferred 3 Trot at Grand River Raceway.
Driven by Scott Coulter, the Corey Johnson-trained Falcor Bluestone was victorious in 1:59.1 despite a piece of equipment dangling in front of his chest.
Heres The Magic (Nick Steward) cut fractions of :28.1, :57.2 and 1:28.2 before fading out of the money. Blazing Shot (J Harris) overtook the tempo-setter around the last turn with Falcor Bluestone emerging between that rival and the wide-rallying Thunderaway (Bruce Richardson).
Falcor Bluestone prevailed in a final sprint to the wire by a quarter-length over Osprey Vision (Dave Boughton), who ducked to the inside lane, while Blazing Shot finished two lengths behind in third.
