Woodbine Mohawk Park hosted a compact, six-race qualifying session on Tuesday morning (Oct. 6) that was contested over a 'fast' track.

One of the most notable miles from the session was recorded by two-year-old American Ideal colt Right Idea, who was pacing his first charted mile over Canadian soil. The bay was participating in just his second-ever qualifier (his previous effort came on June 24 at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono).

Right Idea's trainer/driver/co-owner Rick Zeron was in the sulky and the duo lined up in Post 6 for Race 3. The $70,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase was out and shooting for the lead as the field raced into the first turn.

Right Idea raced on the front end in the opening half of the mile, which saw the quarter cut in :29.2 and the half-mile timer flash to life in :59.4.

Zeron and Right Idea tracked from second along the final turn and past the 1:28.2 three quarters pole.

The duo were still second at the head of the lane, but Zeron called on Right Idea in the straightaway and the colt responded. Right Idea erased his one-length deficit and pulled away to win by three and one-quarter lengths in 1:57.4.

Zeron co-owns Right Idea along with Howard Taylor and War Horse Stables.

Darkest Secret (1:53.2), Yes (1:58.4), Up And Trending (1:58.2), A Positive Hanover (1:56) and Power N Strength (2:00.4) won the session's other races.
