Trotting stallion Il Sogno Dream returned to his winnings ways in the $34,000 Preferred Trot featured Friday (June 16) at Mohawk Racetrack on the eve of Pepsi North America Cup Night.

Driver Trevor Henry sent Il Sogno Dream from third to first after a :27 first quarter and expanded his lead through middle splits of :56 and 1:24.4 en route to a three-length victory in 1:53.1. Olympic Son (James MacDonald) followed in second-place while Catch The Dream (Phil Hudon) rallied home from the back of the pack to show.

A two-time Preferred runner-up in three prior starts this year, the Victor Puddy-trained Il Sogno Dream earned his first victory since returning to the races in mid-May. He paid $3.40 to win as the 3-5 favourite.

The six-year-old son of Cantab Hall earned his 20th career victory and is now just over $1,000 short in his quest for $1 million in earnings racing for Bill Manes, Dan Manes, Leonard Christopher and Randy Christopher while on a breeding lease to Mac Lilley Farms Ltd.

Mohawk's last race Jackpot Hi-5 wager was hit on Friday as just one single ticket had the correct 2-1-8-6-9 combination of top five finishers: Buttermilk Hanover (2-1), Your My Secret (12-1), Justabit Mean (39-1), Jimmys Little Girl (31-1) and Call It Courage (20-1). According to Mohawk, an HPI customer from Century Downs wagered $268.80 to win the jackpot of $70,028.97.
