Flamboro Preferred To Lexis D J

Lexis D J disappointed as the favourite in last week’s $11,000 Preferred 3 for trotters at Flamboro Downs, but he redeemed himself with a come-from-behind tally in Friday’s feature at Canada’s fastest half-mile oval.

With Bob McClure barking out orders from the racebike, Lexis D J got away sixth in the early going while Hesgotlegs fired to the front and laid down panels of :28.2, :59 and 1:28.4. The leader’s legs got soft late, however, and opened the door for a host of challengers from the backfield. The 'livest' of those threats was Lexis D J, who made a bold move at the three-quarter pole en route to winning by a head in 1:59.2. Dragin The Wagon was a determined runner-up, with third prize earned by race favourite Can I Say.

Shane Arsenault of Freelton, Ontario trains and owns the seven-year-old son of Amigo Hall-Lexus Lulu. It was the fifth win of the year – and the 31st to date – for the career winner of $379,612.

Tornado Tim dropped from the top class for trotters, and that played a key role in him finding his way to the winner’s circle earlier on the card in the $7,000 Preferred 3.

Trainer/driver Danny O’Brian got away fifth with his charge while Euro Man rolled the group through panels of :28.1, :59 and 1:29 before running out of steam. Tornado Tim latched onto cover at the mid-way point and tracked that cover into the backstretch. He made a three-wide move going to the three-quarter pole, and he parlayed that move into the 1:59.3 score over Enough About You and Igottokeeponmoving.

Sent off as the 6-5 favourite, the seven-year-old son of Revenue S-Cyclone Annie improved this year’s record to 10-2-5 from 38 trips to the track. The 28-time winner, who is owned by Everette Hanson of Maugerville, New Brunswick, has banked $214,293 to date.
