Twin B Inspiring went first over to defeat Ontario Sires Stakes graduate Sports Chic in Saturday night's featured $10,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred 2 Handicap Pace at Flamboro Downs.
As Sports Chic, the 9-5 bettors' choice, left for the lead, Twin B Inspiring backed into a five-hole during a :28.1 opening quarter. Twin B Inspiring then launched her challenge as the field came off the turn into the stretch and approached the half-mile mark in :57.4. She applied first over pressure to three-quarters in 1:26.3 before overtaking Sports Chic and opening up three lengths down the lane en route to the 1:57.1 triumph. Drivingthedragon N, a winner the last time she competed in Flamboro's Preferred 2 class, followed Twin B Inspiring's cover and finished second ahead of Sports Chic.
Twin B Inspiring paid $7.70 to win as the 5-2 second favourite. The six-year-old Camluck mare is trained by Isaac Waxman and owned by Tess Mauro and driver J.R. Plante.
Now a nine-time winner, Twin B Inspiring has earned over $75,000 in her racing career. She has won five of her 11 starts since being claimed for $6,250 at Grand River Raceway in late September and took a mark of 1:53 at Woodbine Racetrack last month.
