A big early move paid off nicely late for Lady London as she scored a mild surprise in Buffalo Raceway's $9,500 Filly and Mares Open Handicapped Pace on Wednesday night (Feb. 10).

Lady London, driven by Ray Fisher Jr., returned $13.60 to her backers as she covered the mile in 1:56.1 over the "good" track, the fastest of the young season at Buffalo Raceway. Heavily-favoured Blue Bell Bonnie was five lengths back in second while Perfect Blue Chip was third in the compact field of five.

Blue Bell Bonnie was parked until the opening quarter by HP Sissy and managed briefly to enjoy the lead until the half. Lady London, sitting in fourth, used a big brush down the stretch the first time and quickly took over command at the half in :57.4. From there, Lady London left little doubt who the best was as she cruised home to the blowout victory.

Owned by VHF Racing LLC and trained by Sabrina Shaw, it was the first win of the season in three attempts for Lady London (Big Jim-Maddam Luck). The eight-year-old mare has earned $6,450 in 2021 and $177,327 lifetime.

Davis Jr. finished the night with four driving wins while Fisher Jr. added two victories. Trainer Maria Rice sent three to the winner's circle.

Racing will continue on Saturday evening (Feb. 13) at 5 p.m. (EST) with a 10-race program scheduled.
