A recent addition to the fillies and mares ranks at Century Downs is living up to her name thus far as JL Wonder Woman appears to be a contender to the throne of Tajmeallover.

After a runner-up effort in her local debut last week, JL Wonder Woman dominated her seven rivals en route to her first win in the $9,000 Fillies & Mares Open at Century Downs.

Driver Anthony Succarotte angled JL Wonder Woman to the lead from post four, clearing before opening :28.2 quarter. An unstressed second quarter of :30.1 certainly helped the cause as American Passion (Brandon Campbell) and favoured Tajmeallover (J.F. Gagne), who was assigned the outermost post in the field, commenced a first-over voyage.

JL Wonder Woman accelerated down the backside, tripping the third timer in 1:26.2 and opened up a four-length lead on the field turning for home. Succarotte allowed JL Wonder Woman to comfortably pace home through a :27.4 final quarter to stop the clock in a sharp 1:54.1. Lydi Lula Belle (Paul Davies) darted through horses for place honours with pocket-riding Thats It (Rod Hennessy) completing the triactor.

Owned by trainer Jim Marino of Surrey, B.C., JL Wonder Woman (Feelin Friskie - One Wild Woman) has a win and a second in two races since moving west from the Delaware-Maryland circuit.

Century's handle for the Saturday card topped $140,000, its highest Saturday of the meet thus far.
