Round three of the $7,500 Late Bloomer Pacing Series produced a pair of upsets as Justaminit Hanover and Princesse Dorleans won their respective $7,500 divisions on Saturday night at Sudbury Downs. The series is for non-winners of one race or $15,000 (f/m $20,000) lifetime as of Sept. 24, 2011.

Justaminit Hanover, the longest shot on the board at odds of 11-1, converted from the pocket to win her division by four lengths in 1:58.3. Pacesetter Erwins Xample (Mike MacNeill) finished second and Low Dress (Jason Ryan) came on for third.

The brown Dragon Again filly, who finished third in her opening divisions, is owned and trained by Janice Muller of Azilda, Ont. She paid $24 to win for the second time in 30 starts during her debut season.

The win gave driver Wayne MacLean one of his four victories on the card.

Driven by David Dowling, Princesse Dorleans pulled the pocket after the opening quarter and nosed out Hip Hop Luck (Wayne MacLean) and favourite Brew (Mike Noble) to win her division in 1:57.4.

The chestnut daughter of Shanghai Phil, who won her first leg division and finished fourth in round two, is trained by Yvon Lamoureux for Gestion C Levesque 2005 Inc. of Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Que. The win was her third in 15 seasonal starts. She returned $10.30 to her backers as the 4-1 third choice in the field.
