Dreamfair Van Dam has climbed his way up to the top class at Northside Downs in less than a month and remains undefeated in his 11-year-old campaign after earning his fourth straight victory on Saturday afternoon (June 4).

Racing from the Heather Hawkins stable, Dreamfair Van Dam rallied off the cover of Surrealist in the $1,100 Winners Over Pace and defeated that rival by half a length in 1:59.1. John Kennedy drove the 21-time career winner, who is a gelded son of 2015 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductees Artsplace and J Cs Nathalie. J N J rounded out the top three finish order.

Earlier on the program, 18-year-old Brett LeBlanc celebrated his first career driving win aboard Manic Hispanic in just his sixth pari-mutuel start. Manic Hispanic, trained by LeBlanc's father Harold, fought off George Down and Loch Monster for the half-length victory in 2:04.1. A resident of New Waterford, N.S., LeBlanc was introduced to the sport of harness racing at a young age by his parents and first became an owner and groom at the age of 12.
