Double duty is clearly sitting well with Jimmy Freight, who captured his second consecutive Preferred Pace on Saturday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
With breeding service in full swing for the season, Jimmy Freight is being collected for mares that come a courting and then still finding time to butt heads with some of the nation’s top older pacers.
Jimmy Freight was treated to a two-hole ride this evening behind Uhtred, who carved out panels of :28.3, :57.2 and 1:25.3 in the $36,000 affair. Louis-Philippe Roy angled the Richard Moreau trainee out of the pocket at the head of the lane and Jimmy Freight then summoned up :27.3 speed on the end of the mile to win by a length over Uhtred in 1:53.2. Race favourite Wheels On Fire rallied to grab third prize in the six-horse affair.
Adriano Sorella owns the seven-year-old son of Sportswriter-Allamerican Summer who is included in the stallion roster offered at Canada’s division of Winbak Farm. The victory improves his 2022 box score to 4-0-2 from nine attempts. The 25-time winner has banked over $1.5 million to date.
The winning streak is six-in-a-row and climbing for Linedrive Hanover thanks to his 1:53 triumph in a $22,000 conditioned event later on the card.
James MacDonald got away fourth from Post 7 with the Anthony Beaton trainee, who was sent off as the 2-5 choice in the 10-horse tilt. They were on the move to go after the leader in the backstretch, and after racing parked past the half in :57.2 he moved to the top and crossed over to the rail. He was prompted by Undrthsouthrnsun N to the three-quarter pole in 1:24.2 before turning that foe aside and using a :28.3 closing panel to win by three lengths over Undrthsouthrnsun N. Century Hannibal was third.
The four-year-old son of Betting Line-Lillian Hanover is owned by West Wins Stable, Mckinlay & Fielding and Mac Nichol. The talented pacer has banked over $70,000 in his first seven assignments.
