WEG Preferred To Amigo De Grande

After a number of ‘close, but no cigar’ performances in recent weeks at Woodbine Racetrack, Amigo De Grande broke through for a memorable victory at the Rexdale, Ontario oval.

What made it special was the fact he did it in the $34,000 Preferred Trot – a solid accomplishment for the former claimer who recently joined forces with trainer Carmen Auciello.

Anthony MacDonald worked out a pretty trip in the two-hole for Amigo De Grande, who stalked Cool Guy through fractions of :26.4, :56.3 and 1:25.3 before going after that tempo-setting foe. MacDonald tipped and rolled with Amigo De Grande, who then used a :27.4 closing quarter to win by 3-1/4 lengths over the hard-charging Slip Into Glide in 1:53.3. Nowucit Nowudont rallied to finish third in the seven-horse skirmish.

The eight-year-old son of Amigo Hall-Giant Miss, who was claimed for $25,000 by Denarben Stables of Thornhill, Ontario on January 10, has racked up an impressive record of 2-3-1 in just seven starts since the acquisition. The 25-time winner has stashed away $62,820 this year and more than $286,000 to date.
