Buttermilk Hanover ($3.70) did not disappoint her backers in Sunday evening’s (October 15) $10,500 Preferred 2 Handicap for pacing mares at Flamboro Downs, drawing off with ease to a nine-length victory on a crisp Dundas evening.

Robert Shepherd called upon Buttermilk Hanover to split leavers at race’s outset, and the pair worked to push clear of Mach Magic (Scott Young) upon reaching the backstretch on the first occasion. The four-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover was uncontested through splits of :27.2, :57.2, and 1:25 before opening up powerfully on approach to the final turn. Buttermilk Hanover was kept to task in the final sixteenth of her 1:54 victory while well clear of Mach Magic, who narrowly held runner-up honours over Sing Like An Angel (Travis Cullen).

Rod Boyd trains Buttermilk Hanover, now an eight-time winner, for 8113564 Canada, Ltd. and Todd Beelby.

A pair of Preferred 3 events served as supporting races on the evening’s 10-race card.

In the $8,500 Preferred 3 for male pacers, Don McWhite ($5.50, J Harris) brushed boldly from third up the far side, overpowered early pacesetter The Roadies, and mounted a nine-length margin of victory over Redonkulous (Cullen) and Saulsbrook Peach (Shepherd). The four-year-old McArdle entire stopped the clock in 1:53.4 for trainer Corey Johnson, who shares ownership with Sergis Racing Stable, LLC.

The $8,500 Preferred 3 for distaffers saw Duncs Diamond ($16.20, Billy Davis, Jr.) hold off all comers for a pillar-to-post 1:56.2 score. Tilikum (Denis St. Pierre) chased up the pegs to protect second from the pocket over 8-5 joint favourites Topville Cheetah (Bob McClure) and Solid Queen (Cullen).
