Driver Phil Hudon opened Wednesday's harness racing card at Flamboro Downs winning the first three races, including the featured $11,000 Preferred 2 Trot with the streaking mare Thundering Ovation.

Firing off the gate from post five in the second race feature, Hudon and Thundering Ovation led a field scratched down to six through fractions of :28.2, :58.4 and 1:28 en route to a dominant 1:58.1 triumph. The victory was the third in a row for the five-year-old daughter of Thunder Road and a new North American season's record.

Her current streak began in a Preferred 3 event at Western Fair Raceway on Mar. 3 and continued with another win in last Wednesday's Preferred 2 at Flamboro.

Thundering Ovation paid $5.40 to win this time out as the favourite. Heres The Magic and Spartan Victory rounded out the top three finishers four lengths behind.

Gerald Sloan trains the homebred mare, who has won 16 races lifetime and $193,425 in purses, for owners Joanne and Courtney Sloan of Harley, Ont.

Hudon's triple began aboard pacing mare Windsong Experanza ($7.70) and ended with veteran trotter Rate Exchange ($5.70). He later picked up another victory with trotter Saulsbrook Fork ($5.70).

Perfect Royalty ($6.50) won the $7,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3 Pace in 1:57.1 by over a length. Jody Jamieson worked out the winning drive for trainer Joe Pereira and 6824871 Canada Inc. of Gatineau, Que. Sydney Seelster finished second and Burlesque was third.
