Northlands Park's leading trainer and driver Travis Cullen, who is nominated for the O'Brien Award's first-ever Future Star Award, wrapped up a five-win night at the Edmonton oval steering Who Doesnt gate-to-wire in the $9,000 Open Pace.
With the inside post advantage, 1-2 favourite Who Doesnt ($5.10) quickly grabbed the lead in the 11th race feature and cruised through fractions of :28, :57.1 and 1:26.2 en route to the 1:56 triumph over the frozen track. Timberline Court and Gerry Hudon finished one and a half lengths behind in second while pocket-sitter Gable Blue Chip and J.F. Gagne settled for third.
Cullen also co-owns the four-year-old Mach Three gelding with Jeanne, Kenneth and Jodie Cullen.
Earlier on the 12-race card, the 21-year-old horseman earned back-to-back wins in the second through fourth races with Phoenician Gal ($7.20), Red Star Cashflow ($3.90), and Spoons ($4). He also won the sixth race with Glitteronthebeach ($8.30).
Saturday's first eight races were dominated by Cullen and Brandon Campbell. Campbell drove four winnershimself, including two of his own trainees.
