Grizzled veteran Sicario went down the road at Flamboro Downs to a decisive 1:58.2 victory in the $10,000 featured trot on Sunday night (Jan. 1).
Driver Brett MacDonald motored the eight-year-old Holiday Road gelding to his preferred stomping grounds and swelled over his competition. Under no challenge, Sicario set a clip of :29.3, :59.4 and 1:28.2 while opening three lengths to the final turn. Oh Lina advanced first over and narrowed on the leader from second coming into the stretch but crossed the beam a length behind Sicario while odds-on favourite Radio Lab levelled off in third.
Richard Moreau trains Sicario for owners Pamel and John Hehn. He won his 34th race from 161 starts and has now earned $322,528. He paid $7.50 to win.
