Class Six notched his third victory in as many starts at Buffalo Raceway with a neck win over Percys Z Tam in the $11,500 Class AA-Open Pace on Saturday night (June 27).

Since arriving from Miami Valley in Ohio in the beginning of June, Class Six has reeled off three-consecutive wins with three different drivers. Shawn McDonough had his opportunity behind Class Six this time around and he did not let it go to waste.

Following behind the favoured pacesetter China Dream, Class Six and McDonough roared through the passing lane and drove to the score in 1:55 over the "fast" track. Percys Z Tam took the photo for second with China Dream finishing in third.

Owned by Eric Prevost and trained by Sabrina Shaw, it was the third victory in 12 tries this season for nine-year-old gelding Class Six (Western Ideal-Can Du River). The win jacked his earnings to $28,460 in 2020 and $406,716 in his career. He paid $21.00.

In the sub-featured $10,000 Class A Pace, Black Is Back returned to his winning ways with a half-length victory over Daylight Rush in 1:54.4. A winner of 10 races in 27 starts and amassing $79,675 in earnings last season, Black Is Back failed to hit the board in his only two starts of 2020, both coming in the Class AA-Open level. But a slight dip in class proved to be the perfect remedy.

Firing off the starting gate, Black Is Back managed to reach the top and set the splits of :28, :57 and 1:26, bringing along the favoured Daylight Rush for the pocket trip.

In the stretch, Black Is Back stood his ground as Daylight Rush tried valiantly but could not pass the winner. In Runaway Bay N took the show spot.

Black Is Back (Western Terror-Magic Moments) is a seven-year-old gelding who is co-owned by Mihajlo Zdjelar Sr. and Curtis Edholm with Mihajlo Zdjelar Jr. handling the training duties. Billy Davis Jr. drove the $8.40 winner.

Racing will continue on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. (EDT) with a 13-race card scheduled.
