WEGZ Stakes winner Royal Becquet returned to Western Fair Raceway on Wednesday night where his was victorious two weeks ago to capture another edition of the $15,000 Preferred Handicap Pace.

Rebounding from an eighth-place finish in his most recent outing at Woodbine Racetrack, Royal Becquet shot out to a three length from a Post 7 start in the ninth race. The eight-year-old Yankee Cam-Steady Pebble gelding and driver Simon Allard hit the opening quarter mark in :27-seconds before facing heavy first over pressure in the form of Major Stone (Tony Kerwood). The pair faced off through middle splits of :56.4 and 1:25.1 with Royal Becquet winning the battle and pulling away as they headed into the stretch. The Rene Allard pupil pressed on to score in 1:53.4 by three-quarters of a length over pocket-sitter and 35-1 longshot Justalittleluck (Nick Steward) with 19-1 Major Stone three lengths in arrears.

Royal Becquet paid $17.60 to win for the third time in 11 seasonal starts. The winner 29 races lifetime and over $466,000 is co-owned by Michel Allard of Saint-Esprit and Nancy Lajeunesse of Quebec, Que.
