Bath Beach Aims For Princess Title

She has yet to score a victory in this series, yet a lass named Bath Beach has shown such final-quarter speed that she’s rated the 6-5 morning line favourite going into Thursday’s $67,000 final of the Princess Pacing Series
for three-year-old fillies at Mohawk Racetrack.

In the first leg of the Princess series, Bath Beach, who captured the final of the Miss Vera Bars Pacing Series at Woodbine Racetrack back in February, used her patented come-from-behind style to take home a third-place finish behind Topaz Seelster and Blogette Hanover.

She improved on that result in last week’s second leg of the series despite suffering interference in the late stages of the mile. Despite the final turn setback she rallied home to pick up the runner-up award behind longshot winner Real Heart.

With final panels of :27.1 and :27.2 respectively in those efforts, Bath Beach has proven she has a mean closing kick. Now it remains to be seen if reinsman Paul MacDonell can use that talent to seal the deal when Bath Beach, who is trained and co-owned by LaSalle, Ontario native Dean Nixon, faces the gate in Thursday’s rich final.

The final of the Princess Pacing Series goes off as the sixth race on Thursday evening at Mohawk Racetrack.
