It was a terrific finish in Saturday’s $11,000 Preferred 2 & 3 Handicap Trot at Georgian Downs, as three horses came within a half length of one another for all the marbles.

Ole Jack Magic came out on top thanks to his neck decision in the featured affair.

Scott Young dropped over to race third with Ole Jack Magic in the early part of the mile while Wildwild Men shot to the lead and tore through fractions of :28.1, :59.1 and 1:28.1. Ole Jack Magic started a first-over rally going to the three-quarter pole, and he continued to chip away before rallying to win by a neck over Wildwild Men in 1:56.4. Taking home the show dough was Euro Classic.

Jerry Duford trains the six-year-old son of Kadabra-Whitesand Electra for Home Stretch Holdings Inc of Rockwood, Ont. The gelding went 7-for-37 last year, and he’s already assembled a 4-3-3 record from 21 trips to the track this season. He’s banked over $30,000 this year and more than $315,000 to date.

Racing Under Saddle made its 2017 debut at Georgian Downs on Saturday evening, with Pukka and rider Maggie Jones prevailing in 2:01.3 in the $4,500 affair.

Jones had the four-year-old son of Holiday Road-Sunflower Sue on top through fractions of :29.1, :59.1 and 1:29.4 before using a :31.4 closing panel to win by a half-length margin over Thor Seelster. E L Rock rounded out the top three finishers.

Keith Jones trains the four-year-old for owner Lisa Heyden of Midhurst, Ont. It was the fourth lifetime win – and the second to date – for the career winner of $57,994.
