Able to protect the early lead from the pole, Short Term Memory ($5.80) held his ground for a repeat victory in Wednesday evening’s (November 29) featured $8,100 conditioned trot at Flamboro Downs, keeping a sustained bid from Bred For Greatness at bay for a 1:59.3 score.

Phil Hudon used inside position to protect the lead from three other leavers, asking Short Term Memory to accelerate on the first turn and force Da Miracle (Scott Coulter) into the pocket through a :29 first quarter. With five-eighths to go, Bred For Greatness (Bob McClure) angled out from third spot and gained to apply first-over pressure to Short Term Memory at race’s midpoint.

After facing sustained pressure through middle splits of :58.4 and 1:27.4, Short Term Memory briefly ceded the lead to Bred For Greatness on the final turn—but refused to waver. The three-year-old Daylon Magician gelding reclaimed control immediately after corning for home, and held off a second bid from Bred For Greatness—who bore out to the seven-path—by half a length in 1:59.3. Da Miracle gave chase up the open stretch and held third.

The win was Short Term Memory's third in four starts, and the fifth of his career. Jack Moiseyev handles the training duties for the Four JS Racing Stable, Daylon Farms, Ltd., and Gordon Yeo.

Jonathan Lapointe teamed a pair of longshot winners on the 10-race card, prevailing with Doyoubelievemenow ($90.50, 2:00) and Alliwannadoisplay ($31.90, 1:59.3) in the night’s second and fourth events, both for claiming pacers.
