Driver Yannick Gingras launched 7-5 favourite Peaky Sneaky from the pocket and hustled to a 1:48 victory in the second of two divisions of the $225,000 Glen Garnsey Memorial — sponsored by the Sweet Lou Syndicate and Diamond Creek Farms — on Sunday (Oct. 11) at The Red Mile.

Peaky Sneaky pushed for the lead, but settled for the pocket as New Year strode to the top by a :27.1 first quarter. She continued on the lead unchallenged to a :54.3 half and rolled unpressed into the final turn, until Peaky Sneaky began to emerge from the pocket by three-quarters in 1:22.1. Within a matter of strides, Peaky Sneaky surged to the front and widened her lead sprinting to the finish while Perfect Storm scooted through the inside to take second. Rocknificent rallied for third, and New Year settled for fourth.

Peaky Sneaky ($4.80), trained by Nancy Takter for Howard Taylor, Judith Taylor and Order By Stable, won her fifth race from 12 starts this season and her seventh from 21 overall and has earned $313,749. White Birch Farm bred the Bettors Delight filly.

Lyons Sentinel skirted around rough-gaited pacesetter Reflect With Me to score as the 6-5 favourite in the first division of the Glen Garnsey Memorial.

Reflect With Me motored for the lead while Lyons Sentinel secured the pocket. Marloe Hanover raced third to a :28.2 opening quarter, where JK First Lady tipped first-over from last. She flushed cover from Baby Your The Best moving to a :56.3 half, but Reflect With Me remained uncontested to the far turn.

Nearing three-quarters, Reflect With Me began to stumble but quickly recorrected — but also forced Lyons Sentinel to zip out of the pocket. JK First Lady rolled three-wide by three-quarters in 1:23.4, but Lyons Sentinel got the jump. Through the stretch, the Jim King Jr. trainee held firm on the lead in progress to a 1:49.2 win with JK First Lady settling for second. Hen Party closed for third while Marloe Hanover finished fourth.

Lyons Sentinel ($4.40) won her second race from 11 starts this season for Threelyonsracing and her 11th from 25 overall and has earned $1,103,639. Tim Tetrick drove the Hanover Shoe Farms-bred Captaintreacherous filly.
