Anderlecht stormed home from the backfield to prevail by a neck in the $6,500 Winners Over Handicap pacing feature on Sunday night at Rideau Carleton Raceway for leading trainer John MacMillan.

The nine-year-old son of Cams Card Shark earned his second consecutive win with driver Rheo Filion in the sulky.

Assigned outside his seven rivals, Anderlecht followed cover three-wide from fourth over into the stretch, then fanned four-high and circled the field to prevail in 1:56.2 by a neck over Clever Thing and Modern Xhibit. He paid $8.60 to win as the 3-1 third choice.

Anderlecht has now won 41 times in his career -- including eight races in 2014 -- and boasts close to $900,000 in earnings with a lifetime mark of 1:48 taken earlier this year at Pocono Downs.

MacMillan's stable concluded the 2014 racing season at the Ottawa oval with 72 wins while Guy Gagnon was the track's leading driver with 154 victories.

Trainer Philip Doyle had a perfect night at the races with three wins in three starts courtesy of Fishmydoc ($3.10) and Thats Ideal ($11.70), driven by Stephane Lareau, and Sovereign Wealth ($68.70), with Clarke Steacy in the sulky.
