A set of Preferred 3 events went postward Monday evening at The Raceway at Western Fair District, with Kendal Gustav and Winzel winning their respective assignments.

Kendal Gustav shot to the front from Post 2 and rolled to an easy victory in his $7,400 affair for driver Lorne House. The public’s top choice, who closed at odds of 6-5, carved out splits of :27, :58 and 1:26.4 before sealing the deal with a :29.2 closing panel. He was 2-1/2 lengths better than Pacific Oak in 1:56.1. Lawmen Reign rounded out the top three finishers.

Trainer Scott McNiven co-owns the five-year-old son of Life Sign-City Of Dreams with Tom Brodhurst of London and Shirley Griffin of St. Thomas, Ontario. The partnership has watched the gelding go 10-for-37 this season and 27-for-112 in his career. The lion’s share of Monday’s purse lifted his overall cash stash to $177,749.

Just one race earlier it was Winzel using off-the-speed tactics to win his $7,000 tilt for trotters in a time of 2:00.4 for driver Ryan Holliday. The nine-year-old son of Royal Strength-Worthy Outlaw came first-over and eventually wore down the tempo-setting Kashs Caviar by a neck in 2:00.4. Cimeronken was a lapped-on third in what turned out to be a blanket finish.

Trainer Britt Kennedy of Ingersoll co-owns the gelding with Janet Fairall of Windsor and Nancy & Jack Holmes of Clinton, Ontario. Together, the partners watched the trotter find his way to victory for the sixth time this season and for the 39th time in his career. He’s banked more than $240,000 to date.
