After runner-up efforts in his first two seasonal starts at Exhibition Park Raceway, Real Bigg was large and in charge on Saturday (June 9) capturing the featured $1,350 Winners Over Pace.

With multiple lead changes between favourite Fall Bliss (Dr. Mitch Downey) and Real Bigg (Mark Haig) through opening fractions of :30.1, 1:03 and 1:33.2, the field of four was lightly bunched heading for the wire. Real Bigg had a lead of nearly two lengths turning for home but Jackson K Down (Steve Mason) and Father Ofthe Year (Mike Downey) were in hot pursuit. Those rivals closed on the leader with every stride but Real Bigg hit the wire a neck in front of Jackson K Down for the victory, with the mile timed in 2:02.3. Father Ofthe Year completed the top three, a half-length back in third.

Owned by trainer Harold Defazio, Real Bigg (Mister Bigg - Real Girl) notched his first win of the season and 16th lifetime. The seven-year-old gelding sports $63,766 in lifetime earnings.
