Structure Fire used a backstretch brush to catapult himself into the winning position in the $30,000 Preferred Trot on Monday night at Woodbine Racetrack.

Think Gold (Mark MacDonald) took control off the gate from post position No. 6 with 8-5 favourte Pembroke Prayer (Jody Jamieson) pocket pulling at the :26.4 opening quarter. Pembroke Prayer quickly took over and raced to the half in :56.2 while Structure Fire and driver Jason Brewer moved underway from fifth.

Structure Fire advanced steadily to the top before entering the final turn and hitting three-quarters in 1:25. He opened up multiple lengths down the stretch to secure the 1:54 victory equalling his lifetime mark, which was taken on Jan. 3 at Woodbine. Runner-up Think Gold narrowed the winner’s margin of victory to just one and a half lengths while Rose Run Hooligan (Rick Zeron) rounded out the top three.

Structure Fire paid $10.10 to win as the 4-1 third choice in the field of seven. The son of Amigo Hall-Fire Breather, who picked up his ninth career win and pushed his earnings to $184,151, is trained and co-owned by Gary Lance along with Trevor Lance of Port Perry and Brian Samis of Uxbridge, Ont. The five-year-old gelding has won half of his four starts this year earning $36,000.

Rene Allard, the nation's leading trainer for wins in 2010, won three of the evening's 12 races. Allard trainees First Notable Chip ($5.40) won the third race and Canaco Run ($4.30) won the seventh race, both with Jamieson in the bike, while Golden Time ($17.60) won the 11th race with Luc Ouellette aboard.
