Riina Rekila, the accomplished veterinarian and trainer/driver from Finland, won again on the Ontario monte circuit, piloting Katla (3f Cadillac Hall-Flores-Balanced Image) last evening at Hiawatha Horse Park.
Her Overseas Farms Ltd. homebred three year-old filly scored by three lengths in 2:05.2f after patiently waiting mid-pack in the six horse field until moving toward the front with a quarter mile remaining.
Katla swept to a three length win posting a last quarter in :30.2 and her last half in 1:00.2. Britt Kennedy was second aboard Charlie Tuna with Lindsey Kerr taking the show spot with Whitesand Diego.
Later on the regular pari-mutuel card, Rekila won again, this time driving Overseas Farms’ two year-old colt Ehrnrooth (2m Ken Warkentin-Mona Simoni-General November). The pair triumphed in 2:01.3f.
Next stop for the monte Ontario events are scheduled for September 28 at Mohawk as part of OSS Super Finals night and October 18 at Western Fair Raceway.
