Favourite Who Doesn't converted off a perfect pocket trip to nail last week's Open Pace winner Smooth Criminal at the wire in Saturday's feature race at Northlands Park.
Trained and driven by Canada's 2013 Future Star Award winner Travis Cullen, Who Doesn't established a new lifetime mark with his latest victory, clocked in 1:52.1, on a -17 degree afternoon in Edmonton.
Who Doesn't followed Smooth Criminal and Bill Tainsh Jr. through fractions of :28, :56.1 and 1:23.3 in the $9,000 Open before kicking home in :28.2 to steal the spotlight. Despite drifting out in the stretch, Who Doesnt prevailed in a photo finish by a head over the pacesetter while Flak Jacket and Jamie Gray finished nearly seven lengths behind in third.
Who Doesn't, who now has two wins and two seconds in six seasonal starts, paid $4.70 to win as the 6-5 bettors' choice.
Cullen shares ownership of the five-year-old Mach Three gelding with his family -- Jeanne, Kenneth and Jodie Cullen.
