Chewey was a fast-closing third in last week’s $15,000 Preferred Trot at Western Fair Raceway, but in Tuesday’s follow-up effort in the top class for square gaiters he got all the marbles thanks his patented closing kick.

With Stuart Sowerby at the controls, Chewey tracked cover before springing into action and drawing clear to win the richest event of the 12-card.

Long Ago shot to immediate command and laid down fractions of :28.1, :59.2 and 1:28.3. Zorgwijk Jock applied first-over pressure to the leader in the middle stages of the mile, with Chewey riding cover from second-over. Chewey made a three-wide brush coming out of the final turn and used a :29.2 final frame to win by 2-1/2 lengths over Zorgwijk Jock in 1:58.3. Long Ago faded late and had to settle for third prize.

Ed Galinski conditions the five-year-old son of Trainforthefuture-Marie Adonno for Kingfisher Farms of Seneca, ON. The win was the sixth of the season and the ninth lifetime tally for the career winner of $83,782. The 1:58.3 performance matched the trotter’s lifetime best.
