The $35,000 final of the Wendell Smith Memorial was a delight to the chalk players on Sunday (March 25) at Fraser Downs, as the Debra McCarthy-trained and Kevin Anderson-driven One Small Favour ($5.10) went gate to wire from Post 3 and won in 1:56.

One Small Favour, a three-year-old altered son of Sportswriter, is a homebred of the J J J Stables of Prince George, BC. One Small Favour’s connections must have loved the timing of his maiden-breaking score, as the $17,500 windfall proved his richest payday to date.

After having lined up with seven other BC-bred male pacers, One Small Favour left from Post 3, cut the fractions (:28.3, :58.1, 1:27) and paced home in :29 for a two and a quarter-length victory.

The pocket-riding Sea Devil (driven by Mark Abbott) raced second throughout the mile and finished second. Solongo (Carl Sibiga) closed first up from fourth and finished third, four and a quarter lengths in arrears of the victor. Working Class Hero and Just A Prince finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

One Small Favour has one victory from two seasonal starts, and is now one for eight lifetime with $24,700 in purses.
