The first leg of the Town Pro Pacing Series got underway on Friday night at Mohawk Racetrack, with two $18,000 divisions taking place.
In the first division, heavy favourite Major Dancer lived up to expectations with a two and three-quarter length victory in 1:53.
Driver Chris Christoforou dropped the Casie Coleman trainee in sixth early and got a second over trip on the back of Unique Rock N Roll (Doug McNair). At the top of the stretch, Christoforou brought her off that cover and never looked back with the daughter of Art Major-Two Steppin Sally. Major Dancer used a :26.3 last quarter to draw away from her competitors. In a tight four-horse photo for place, Poppies Pride (Randy Waples) and Sam (Roger Mayotte) finished in a dead-heat for second, while Polk Dot Hanover (Rick Zeron) was fourth.
