Outlaw Gunpowder was a repeat winner in Century Downs' $11,000 Open, extending his streak of successful outings to nine in a row on Sunday, March 20.

The victory was part of another multi-win performance for the red-hot Travis Cullen stable, who had sent out four winners on Saturday including the streaking claiming pacer Rain Gauge and added another three wins to his meet-leading totals on Sunday.

Cullen and Keith Hannah co-own Outlaw Gunpowder, who matched his 1:53 career mark that was taken four wins into his current string of successes back on December 31, 2015 at Northlands Park.

Race favourite Outlaw Gunpowder, sent off at 2-5, followed along in the middle of the five-horse field through first half fractions of :27.4 and :56.2 before rushing past leader Get Thereovernight (Bill Tainsh Jr.) at the 1:24.4 third quarter mark and drawing off. The five-year-old son of Smart Shark kicked away from his competition by five and a half lengths with a :28.1 closing quarter. Audreys Dream (Ed Hensley) pursued Outlaw Gunpowder out of the pocket and came on for second-place for the second week in a row. Get Thereovernight finished third and Spinfiniti (Mike Hennessy), a Woodbine Preferred winner last year, just edged out Cullen's Who Doesnt (Ron Cullen) in his second Alberta start and first among local Open competition.

Outlaw Gunpowder's win streak dates back to December 12, 2015 for Cullen and company, who claimed the former Western Canada Pacing Derby champ for $12,500 during the inaugural Century Downs meet. The pacer earned his 19th career win and pushed his career bankroll over $175,000.

Cullen's Sunday stars, Counter Strike ($3.10), the aforementioned Outlaw Gunpowder ($2.90) and False Advertising ($4.40), were consecutive winners in races two through four. The young horseman also catch-drove Lightning Legs ($22.30) in the 10th race finale to complete Ashleigh Hensley's training double on the day.
