It wasn’t a good day for the favourites in Monday’s Preferred tilts at The Raceway at Western Fair District, as Neils Golden Girl and Rock N Roll Legacy played the role of spoiler in their respective events.

Neils Golden Girl came on strong in the late stages of the mile and erupted for a 26-1 upset in the $7,500 Preferred 3 for trotters. In rein to trainer Travis Henry, the five-year-old daughter of Majestic Son-Vision Of Gold was treated to a ground-saving trip for most of the mile before making a first-over bid on the way to the three-quarter pole. She dug in late and used a :29.3 closing quarter to win by a neck over Cimeronken in 1:59.3. Race favourite Thor Seelster was third.

Lois Allison and Wayne Allison share ownership on the eight-time winner who went over $60,000 in earnings with the win.

Rock N Roll Legacy nabbed a narrow score in the $7,900 Preferred 3 for horses and geldings on the pace, but his surprise was just a mild one. Sent off at odds of 4-1, the Randy Marriage trainee got away sixth before making a first-over bid on the way to the half. Despite the tough trip, the gelding dug in and used a :29.2 closing quarter to win by half a length over Cluster Hanover. Third prize was earned by Kendal Gustav.

Marriage shares ownership on the four-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover-Shanias Legacy with Richard McGlynn of Bayfield, ON. The victory was his fourth of the season and the eight of his career. He also surpassed $60,000 in earnings with his win.
