It was the classic case of catch-me-if-you-can in the Winners Over Pace at Northside Downs on Saturday afternoon and, try as they might, the field just could not catch Brother John.

John Beaton had the catch-driving assignment aboard Brother John in the $1,300 Saturday feature. Leaving from post three, Beaton had the eight-year-old on top at the quarter in :30.3, then backed down the pace through the second quarter to hit the half in 1:02.2. Picking up the tempo in the third stanza, Brother John passed the third station in 1:32.2 and braced for the onslaught of the backfield. As the challengers fanned four-wide around the far turn, Brother John maintained his status as the alpha male heading for home and widened his lead to approaching the wire to trip the timer in 2:02.2. Pocket-sitting Fex Education (Gerard Kennedy) was next best with Keep A Secret (Roddy Hurley) unleashing his usual late kick to complete the triactor.

Trained by Ken Collins, Brother John (Stonebridge Regal - Pine Barrens) is owned by Randy & Bradley Getto, Susan MacSween and Wayne Hardy, all of Nova Scotia. The win was the gelding's sixth of the year and 35th lifetime.
