Windsong Leo continued to roll on Saturday (Feb. 1), as he captured yet another victory in Miami Valley Raceway's top class.

Windsong Leo, who won 15 races from 30 starts in 2019, remains undefeated in four 2020 starts—all in Open Handicap contests where he has been assigned an outside post—as he posted another victory in the top class at Miami Valley on Saturday (Feb. 1).

The eight-year-old Jeremes Jet gelding was again sent to the front by pilot Chris Page. Stuck four wide midway through the first turn, Page backed Windsong Leo off briefly to let the dust settle, but continued to the front as the leaders passed the quarter in :27. As is his custom, Windsong Leo played 'catch me if you can' from that point to the finish and again nobody could. Despite a few tepid challenges along the way, Page patiently guided his overwhelming favourite through middle fractions of :56.1 and 1:23.4 before sealing the deal for the third consecutive week in 1:52.3.

Longshots General Dolan and Lifewithjohn rallied for place and show finishes with My Hero Ron, Shagnwiththedragon and Beyond Delight picking up the minor spoils in the full field of ten.

Windsong Leo is trained by Ron Burke for Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and Phil Collura.

Miami Valley will not race on Sunday (Feb. 2) due to the Super Bowl, but will resume its normal five-days-a-week schedule on Monday afternoon at 2:15 p.m.
