Since being added to the Lasix program Twin B Warrior has shown improvement, and on Tuesday evening he celebrated the biggest victory of his career.

The Jeff Gillis trainee swept off cover for driver Randy Waples en route to capturing the $130,000 O.S.S. Gold Series Final for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings at Windsor Raceway.

Twin B Warrior was allowed to settle off a wild early pace which was set by Big Bay Point (Robert Shepherd). That son of Camluck, who started from post nine, hammered out panels of :26.2, :54.1 and 1:22 before coming under attack from a host of challengers.

Waples swung Twin B Warrior off cover and used a :28-second final frame to win the rich event by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:50.3 over last year’s Super Final champ Code Word (Chris Christoforou), with third prize going to race favourite Mach Dreamer (Rick Zeron). It was a career-best clocking for the gelded son of Apaches Fame-What An Attitude, and the mile matched Magical GG's track record for three-year-old pacing geldings.

Mac Nichol of Burlington, ON holds the ownership papers on Twin B Warrior, who found his way to the winner’s circle for the third time this season and for the sixth time in his career. The victory boosted the gelding’s bankroll to $410,981.
