Richard Moreau trainee Isitfridayyet picked up his first Preferred victory in the $34,000 feature at Woodbine Mohawk Park Saturday, Dec. 1.

A field of eight older pacers battled over a "sloppy" track for this week’s edition of the Preferred.

The early scramble saw Regal Son clear to the top shortly after posting a :27 opening quarter. Physicallyinclined, who left from the rail, was on the move from third at the first quarter and rushed up to take the lead well before reaching the half in :56.3.

Isitfridayyet and driver Louis-Philippe Roy got away sixth from post eight. The eventual winner angled out at the half and was situated third over and a little more than four lengths from the lead turning for home. Physicallyinclined continued to lead at three-quarters in 1:25.4 as four others ranged within a length of the lead coming to the wire.

Isitfridayyet powered off cover and charged by on the outside to win by a length and a half in 1:53.2. Regal Son came up the inside from the two-hole to finish second, while Rockin In Heaven came from second-over to grab third. Physicallyinclined gave up the lead in the lane but battled to finish fourth.

A five-year-old gelding, Isitfridayyet has gone from competing as a $15,000 claimer at Western Fair in January to winning the top-class at Mohawk Park in December. His five-year-old record now sits at 11 wins and $134,830 earned in 23 starts.

Isitfridayyet joined the Moreau barn in late-February and is owned by Leonard Rosene of London, Ontario. The Preferred victory increases his career numbers to 20 wins and $176,374 earned.

He paid $5.70 to win.

Live racing resumes Monday, Dec. 3 at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:10 p.m.
