Brushing to the front approaching the final turn, Odds On Amethyst blew away his competition, coasting to a 1:53.2 victory as the favourite in the $34,000 Preferred at Woodbine Racetrack on Monday, January 8.

Sitting fourth, Odds On Amethyst sat off a :27.4 quarter set by Will Take Charge, who soon yielded the top to Il Sogno Dream entering the backstretch. Odds On Amethyst angled first over moving to the half, timed in :57, and opened a five-length lead on Il Sogno Dream chasing in second heading to three-quarters. Passing the third-quarter in 1:24, Odds On Amethyst's lead diminished, but he remained three-and-a-half lengths clear of Will Take Charge finishing second, with Il Sogno Dream holding third.

Winning his 27th race in 91 starts, Odds On Amethyst, a seven-year-old gelding by Muscle Hill out of the Yankee Glide mare Mystical Sunshine, competes for the interests of William Cripps, Charles Gazzola, Adam Kean, and trainer-driver Patrick Hudon. He returned $5.70 to win.
