Blissfull Breeze rallied three-wide at the third quarter mark to deliver on his pari-mutuel promise in the featured $10,000 Preferred 2 Pace at Hiawatha Horse Park on Saturday night
Cash Only Please (Don Rankin Jr.) led the way past panels of :26.1, :55.1 and 1:23.2 before being collared in the stretch by 3-1 favourite Blissfull Breeze and Robert Sparling Jr., who zipped around a fading Camblazer (Mark Pezzarello) and used a :29.2 final frame to get the job done. The winning time was 1:53 for the Dean Nixon pupil. Armbro Warranty (Gene Piroski) finished one and a half lengths behind while Cash Only Please was three lengths back in third.
Leo Racicot of Harrow, ON owns the winner of three races in seven starts this year and over $18,000. The seven-year-old gelded son of Blissfull Hall-Melbourne Breeze notched his 35th career win while raising his bankroll to $187,070.
