A Treacherous Reign In The Fan Hanover

Published: June 15, 2019 10:20 pm EDT

When two fillies go into a race with a perfect record, odds are only one comes out with a perfect record. And the picture of perfection in the 2019 Fan Hanover Final is Treacherous Reign, who knocked off Warrawee Ubeaut in the final strides on the 2019 Pepsi North America Cup undercard.

Driver Dexter Dunn looked to place elim winner Treacherous Reign forwardly as Stonebridge Soul (Sylvain Filion) fired out for the front from post nine. Powerful Chris (Bob McClure) was also pointed to the top and cleared Stonebridge Soul to reach the opening stanza in :27. That lead was short-lived, however, as Treacherous Reign made her intentions known to drive on and then yield to favoured Warrawee Ubeaut (Yannick Gingras).

Warrawee Ubeaut fronted the field just before the :54.1 half, with pressure coming from Tall Drink Hanover (Andrew McCarthy). A third quarter was almost identical in tempo to the first two, clicked in 1:21.1. Warrawee Ubeaut put away Tall Drink Hanover but then faced the fresh threat of pocket-sitting Treacherous Reign. Those two warriors traded blows down the Mohawk stretch with neither willing to give up, and Powerful Chris snuck up the rail to make it a three-way dance. In deep stretch, Treacherous Reign poked her nose in front to trip the timer in a lifetime best 1:48.3.

Owned by Alagna Racing LLC of Manalapan, N.J., Big Als Stables of Woodbridge, Ont., Let It Ride Stables Inc. and Dana Parham of Boca Raton, Fl., Treacherous Reign (Captaintreacherous - Scandalous Hanover) is now perfect in four seasonal starts. The lion's share of the purse puts her lifetime earnings at $517,365.
