Assigned the outside post position for the second week in a row, the streaking Thundering Ovation tried it first over this time out with a host of trotters leaving the gate, but couldn't catch the front-striding Heres The Magic in the featured $11,000 Preferred 2 Handicap on Wednesday at Western Fair Raceway.

Leaving from post three with Alfie Carroll aboard, Heres The Magic carved out fractions of :27.4, :58.3 and 1:27.2 with the favoured mare advancing from fifth to second into the stretch. But Heres The Magic rebuffed that rival to take a new season's mark of 1:58.1. Trained by Victor Puddy for Keith Cassell of Smiths Falls, Ont., the victory was Heres The Magic's fourth in 11 starts this year.

Sent postward as the 5-2 third choice in the field of seven, the five-year-old Kadabra gelding paid $7.20 to win. Aisling followed from the pocket to place, one and a half lengths behind. Finishing third through fifth, Cimeronken, CIS Buckeye and Thundering Ovation earned the final paycheques in the race.
