The morning line oddsmaker liked him, the public was all over him, and Bill Tainsh drove him like the chalk. Boiling Oar ($3.50) put forth a multiple-move effort and captured Fraser Downs’ $10,800 Open Pace in 1:53.4 on Sunday afternoon (Feb. 9).

Boiling Oar, who is a five-year-old gelded son of Shadow Play, started from the outside Post 5 in the scratch-reduced clash.

Tainsh and his charge crossed over early over the ‘fast’ track and clicked off the opening quarter in :28.1, even though they were under early attack from the public’s second choice, Iwontdothatagain, who had Kelly Hoerdt at his controls.

Boiling Oar let Iwontdothatagain go to the lead late in the second quarter, and the latter spun off the half-mile time in :58.1.

The Brandon Campbell-driven Ima Dude came calling first-up from third in the third quarter, but faded after Iwontdothatagain flashed up three quarters in 1:26.

The final quarter set up as a two-horse tilt. Iwontdothatagain was determined on the engine, but he didn’t have what it took to hold off Boiling Oar, who fired off of the helmet and was a handy winner at the wire.

The Scott Knight-driven Illwinifican raced valiantly from the backfield, but had to settle for third.

Jim Marino trains Boiling Oar for owner J J J Stables of Prince George, BC.

Boiling Oar has now won two of his four starts this season and 21 of his 45 starts overall. The career earner of $226,918 in purses has now banked $14,364 in 2020.
