Warrawee Vital was a repeat winner in the Snowshoe Series, which continued on a wet winter night Friday at Woodbine Mohawk Park with a pair of $18,000 divisions.

The series is for three and four-year-old male pacers that are non-winners of two races or $30,000 lifetime as of October 31, 2019.

Driven again by Trevor Henry, Warrawee Vital dominated his division rivals leading wire-to-wire in 1:53.2 over a sloppy track rated three seconds off.

After crossing to command from the outside post eight and putting up fractions of :27.1, :57.2 and 1:26.3, he drew off in the stretch with a :26.4 final frame and returned $11.20 to win as the 9-2 third choice. Excavator finished 5-3/4 lengths behind in second while the favoured first round winner, Bettor B Going, unleashed a :26.3 kicker as he rallied off cover to get third.

Rob Fellows trains the winning sophomore for his wife Yolanda and partners Blair Corbeil and M&S Racing Stable Inc. The Captaintreacherous-Great Memories colt, who is a half-brother to millionaires Warrawee Needy and Warrawee Ubeaut, is now perfect in three starts this year and has won four of his five races lifetime.

Springbridge Jim won his series debut earlier on the card with O'Brien Award finalist Bob McClure picking up the catch-drive for owner/trainer Andrew Moore.

D Gs Shallwedance cleared Bernie through a :27.1 quarter before Springbridge Jim moved underway from sixth and continued to progress as Pogey Beach popped out of third and made front by the :58 half-mile mark. Hot on his heels, Springbridge Jim rolled right by the new leader and checked in at three-quarters in 1:27. He was four lengths clear turning for home and cruised to victory in 1:55.1.

Sent postward as the 5-2 second choice, Springbridge Jim returned $7.20 to win. Favourite Conboyville closed from the backfield to finish within 1-1/2 lengths of the winner while Bernie rounded out the top three finish order.

The three-year-old son of Big Jim out of Stonebridge Vision has now won back-to-back races and three of his five career starts.
