Shimmering Crown was treated to a sweet trip in Thursday’s $7,000 Preferred 3 for trotters at Flamboro Downs, and the homebred didn’t let it go to waste.

The four-year-old son of Macs Crown K-Charming Star, who was sent off as the 4-5 favourite, used a :29.3 closing quarter to prevail by a narrow margin in a career-best clocking of 1:58.4.

Trevor Henry tucked the Ron Parsons pupil into an early six-hole while Triple B Herbie was allowed to throw down fractions of :28.3, :58.3 and 1:28.3. Shimmering Crown snuck out to catch cover in the final half of the trotting affair, and he then sprinted by foes in the lane to win by a head over So Sure. Triple B Herbie faded late and wound up settling for third prize.
