Published: November 5, 2021 09:14 pm EDT

A set of $10,000 Preferred events highlighted Friday’s 11-race card at The Raceway at Western Fair District, with Tymal Houdini topping his trotting rivals and Reys N A Rocket rolling over her female foes.

Tymal Houdini went to the front for driver Marc St. Louis, Jr. and didn’t look back en route to a 1:57.4 triumph. The Steve Bossence pupil whacked out fractions of :27.4, :58.3 and 1:27.3 before using a :30.1 closing panel to win by three-quarters of a length over Scene A Magician. Goaltender took home third prize.

E C S Racing LLC of Rockford, MI owns the five-year-old son of Kadabra-Lexus Hall who now boasts a 4-6-3 record from 20 starts this year. The nine-time winner bumped his overall bankroll to $106,493 with the win.

Reys N A Rocket was an upset winner to the tune of 8-1 in the $10,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3 for pacers in a time of 1:56 for the tandem of driver Paul MacKenzie and trainer Gerard Demers.

The seven-year-old daughter of Mattarocket-Allamerican Orchid watched Buttermilk Hanover and Temagami Seelster battle to the quarter pole in :27.1, with Temagami Seelster winning that battle. She went on to post middle splits of :56.4 and 1:26.1, but she weakened late. Mach My Kiss came first over on the way to the half before fading, and Reys N A Rocket then took the role of the first over attacker on the way to the three-quarter pole. She then used a :29.3 closing quarter to win by a length over Manhattan Night. The show dough went to Temagami Seelster.

It was the 11th win of the 2021 season for Reys N A Rocket, who is owned by Michel Lagace of Terrebonne, QC. The 43-time winner lifted her lifetime earnings to $246,622 with the win.
