Evenwood Sonofagun, in red-hot form when racing suspended, resumed from where he left off and turned in the performance of the weekend with a stunning 1:49.2 victory in the $36,000 Preferred Pace at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday (June 6).

Driver Bob McClure hustled the eight-year-old gelding off the gate and cleared to command shortly after a :26.2 opening quarter. The duo proceeded to control the race with fractions of :55 and 1:23.1 before kicking home powerfully in :26.1 for a dominant five-and-a-half length score. Century Farroh grabbed second in his four-year-old debut while Nocturnal Bluechip and Points North completed the Superfecta.

Arriving from Great Britain last fall, Evenwood Sonofagun quickly climbed to Woodbine’s top level and is now a two-time Preferred winner. The Johnson trainee has won five of eight starts this season to bring his 2020 earnings to $84,570 for owner Raymond Huschka.

The clocking of 1:49.2 knocked nearly two-seconds off Evenwood Sonofagun’s previous career-mark. He paid $6.30 to win.

Saturday’s card also saw a mandatory payout held for the Jackpot Hi-5 on Race 10. The carryover entering the race was $236,388.67 and horseplayers wagered $594,669 in "new money".

Mongolian Hero N and driver Chris Christoforou won a thrilling finish in the $30,000 event. The seven-year-old is trained by Tony O’Sullivan and went off at odds of 5-1.
