Trotting mare Winkys Pride turned in a track record-equalling performance and horseman Dan O'Brian celebrated a career milestone in a pair of Preferreds featured at Flamboro Downs on Saturday evening.

Driven by Scott Coulter, six-year-old chestnut mare Winkys Pride ($16.50) matched Indys Kylee's 1:56.1 track record for aged trotting mares in the $11,000 Preferred 2.

The daughter of Amigo Hall-Winkys Smile was a wire-to-wire winner (:27.1, :57, 1:26.1, 1:56.1) for owner/trainer Robert Hummel of Puslinch, Ont. Cimeronken (Travis Henry) finished over one length behind off a pocket trip while Out Of The Hat (J.R. Plante) rounded out the top three finishers five lengths behind.

The victory was Winkys Pride's second in her last three starts and 21st lifetime, lifting her bankroll to $141,704. The winning time was also a personal best for the new co-record holder.

Indys Kylee originally set the record on July 6, 2008.

O'Brian earned his 1,000th career driving victory aboard open-length winner Money Maven ($7), in the earlier $7,000 Preferred 3 Trot.

The Cambridge, Ont.-based driver sent his own trainee from fourth to first past the half and quickly drew away from the rest of the field to win by seven lengths in 1:57.1. Hartmann (Robert Shepherd) and Chewey (Bob McClure) were the best of the rest.

The five-year-old Revenue S-The Raven gelding is owned by Everette Hanson of Maugerville, N.B.
