After a rest of more than four months, two-time O'Brien Award winner Perfetto made his return to the track during the session of qualifiers on Friday, Feb. 2 at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Trainer / driver Dagfin Henriksen sent the nine-year-old trotter to the front during his return effort and made every call a winning one. With fractions of  :29.2, :59.3 and 1:29.4 through the first three panels, Perfetto confidently trotted home in :29.1 for the 1:59 mile. He was five lengths better than pocket-sitter Tijuana Seelster (Colin Kelly). 

A 28-time winner in his career with $842,361 in earnings, Perfetto (Majestic Son - Perfect Prelude) is owned by Gerald Haggerty of Camden East, Ont.

Preferred class pacer American History enjoyed the mild temperatures in Campbellville on Friday morning, uncorking a 1:52.1 mile for driver Dale and trainer MacKenzie Spence. Also nine, millionaire American History (American Ideal - Perfect Touch) is owned by Patrick Hill of Fredericton, N.B.
