It was a round trip to victory lane in the $10,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 2 for Buttermilk Hanover during Thursday’s card of racing at Flamboro Downs.

Buttermilk Hanover, who was sent off as the even-money choice in the six-mare affair, was fifth and parked while Outlaw Imahotvixen sped the field to the quarter marker in :28.1. Buttermilk Hanover and driver Robert Shepherd eventually brushed to the lead and went on to lead the field past the half in :57.4.

Buttermilk Hanover was still in charge at the three-quarter pole in 1:26.4, and she used a :29.3 closing panel to win by three-quarters of a length over Outlaw Imahotvixen in 1:56.2. Anderson Seelster took home the show dough.

Melissa Lamoureux trains the seven-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover-Bet Me Hanover for 8113564 Canada Ltd and Jeff Boyd. The victory improved the mare’s 2020 record to 5-1-1 from 10 trips to the track. The lion’s share of the loot lifted her lifetime earnings over $350,000.

In the $8,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3 it was Lyons Jennielee turning in a front-stepping score for the tandem of driver Travis Cullen and trainer Rachel Andrew.

Cullen hustled the five-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Jamaica Hanover to the lead from Post 2, and together they led the field through first-half fractions of :28.3 and :59.1. Heavy pressure came from race favourite Sweet Ana Hanover, who showed a short lead while racing parked at the three-quarter pole in 1:28.2. Lyons Jennielee shrugged off that challenge, though, and held on to win by three-quarters of a length over Sweet Ana Hanover in 1:57.4. Lo Hold A Moonbean was third.

Cullen and Andrew share ownership on the mare who pushed her winning streak to two-in-a-row with the triumph. The 14-time winner recently surpassed $150,000 in lifetime earnings.
