Southwind Trini won the Thursday $9,500 feature at Vernon Downs with Jim Marohn Jr. in the bike.
Southwind Trini settled in third behind a battle for the lead between Market Dynamics and Love You Bye entering the first turn. After a 26-second quarter mile, Southwind Trini moved to the outside and went to the front early in the backstretch. She then led the field the rest of the way, past the half in 55 seconds and three-quarters in 1:23.3.
Artic Byrd made a challenge on the far turn, but after Marohn, Jr. gave Southwind Trini mild urging at the top of the stretch, she pulled away and coasted to a three-length win in 1:51.4. Artic Byrd did outlast Market Dynamics for second. The remainder of the order was Asset Management, Upfront Secret, and Love You Bye.
