Robert Pooley's Head Turning Jag ($8.70) picked up right where he left off in March, scoring his second consecutive win — off an 81-day layoff, no less — by taking Wednesday's (June 16) $11,500 Preferred 2-3 Handicap Trot at Grand River Raceway in commanding fashion.

After being parked in fourth on the first turn, driver Trevor Henry aggressively gunned the seven-year-old son of Angus Hall to the fore up the backstretch, clearing early pacesetter Katch Kanna (J.R. Plante) after a :28.4 first quarter. And once he seized control of the terms, there was absolutely no looking back. Head Turning Jag rated middle fractions of :58.4 and 1:28.3 before gaining steady separation on the home turn, and he ultimately drew off to defeat Katch Kanna by five lengths in 1:58.2. Scene A Magician (Greg Dustin), another length behind, preserved third up the open stretch.

John Cecchin trains Head Turning Jag, a 14-time winner who won an Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots event in his rookie season and has spent most of the last three years competing at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
