With Grand River Raceway's leading reinsman Trevor Henry in the bike, Indiana Hall took back the baton on Wednesday night topping the Preferred 2 Trot class with a wire-to-wire triumph.

The Preferred winner two starts back in Elora, who had to settle for second-place honours last time out, fired to command from post four in the $11,000 Wednesday feature and never looked back en route to a season's best 1:56.3 score. The consistent trotter has now hit the board 13 times in 18 starts this year. Early breaker Celebrity Hercules (Anthony MacDonald) recovered and rallied wide to come on for second, finishing three-quarters of a length behind the winner. Pocket-sitter Famous Mark (Mario Baillargeon) followed over three lengths behind.

Indiana Hall paid $4.10 to win for the 52nd time in his career as the even-money favourite. The nine-year-old Striking Sahbra gelding, who has banked $781,462 lifetime, is trained by Ian Downey for the S S G Stables.

Earlier on the card, Victim Of Love fought off My Ideal (Paul MacKenzie) as they turned for home and drew off to a 1:54 victory by three and a quarter lengths in the $10,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3 Pace. Henry also drove the seven-year-old No Pan Intended mare for trainer Wayne Preszcator and owners Harness Racing Canada Inc., William Andrew, Fred Haskell, and Guy Haskell. The win was Victim Of Love's 19th lifetime and pushed her earnings to $320,320. She paid $13.70 to win.
