The name of the game was go to the front and don’t look back in two of Tuesday evening’s trio of Preferred events at Georgian Downs.

Never Bax Down front-stepped his way through splits of :28.1, :59.2 and 1:28.1 before finishing off his foes with a :30.1 final quarter to take the $13,000 Preferred Trot for the team of trainer Dave Frey and driver Steve Byron.

The five-year-old son of Angus Hall cruised to a two-length victory over Oaklea Nolan, while Born Believer finished a distant third.

Frey and partner Vaughn Marshall of Campbellville, ON watched the gelding improve to 9-2-3 in 37 starts this season. The lion’s share of the purse boosted his lifetime bankroll to $175,275.

Mach It Paid extended his win streak to three-in-a-row thanks to his coast-to-coast score in the $13,000 Preferred 2 Pace for owner/trainer/driver Isaac Waxman of Dundas, ON.

Waxman laid down fractions of :27.1, :56.3 and 1:26.4 with the four-year-old son of Mach Three, who used a :28-second final frame to hold off The Bam Man by a nose in a time of 1:54.4. Trevor Jay B rounded out the top three in the seven-horse affair.

The victory helped Mach It Paid improve his 2008 record to 12-1-5 in 34 starts. He has stashed away $168,195 to date.

Brawn Seelster struck a pose for the track photographer for the second consecutive start, however he used an off-the-pace approach for trainer/driver Callie Rankin.

The come-from-behind specialist needed nearly every inch of the Innisfil, ON oval to get up for the neck decision in a time of 1:58.3 for Rankin, who shares ownership on the six-year-old son of Berndt Hanover with partner Jeff Goreski of Richmond Hill, ON.

Its A Fact Jack, who laid down panels of :28, :58.2 and 1:28.2 gave way in the closing strides en route to a second-place finish. Pocket-sitting New Dice Please was a lapped-on third in the eight-horse affair.

Brawn Seelster has racked up an eye-catching 12-7-6 record in 32 starts this season, while potting $140,025 along the way. He has banked $349,790 in his career.
