Off a pocket trip, race-favourite The Fixer held off a late charge from Mass Production to win the $12,500 Preferred 2 Trot on Tuesday (Aug. 11) at Georgian Downs.

Power And Grace set the tempo while The Fixer sat second through fractions of :27.4, :58 and 1:26.2. Morally Flexible edged first over from fifth moving to the half but stalled on the march up to three-quarters. Mass Production tipped off the pegs to catch brief cover moving to the final turn, but soon launched around Morally Flexible to mount a bid for the lead late.

Into the stretch Power And Grace fought to hold the lead as The Fixer dove into the open stretch, taking a narrow lead heading to the finish. Mass Production continued to charge home but missed the winner by a half length in a 1:55.1 mile. Power And Grace settled for third.

A four-year-old gelding by Trixton, The Fixer won his fifth race from 15 starts this season and his 11th from 43 overall, earning $149,023. David Frey trains the $4.10 for owner 1652281 Ontario Limited while Scott Coulter sat in the sulky.

Casimir Swamp Girl sped to a 1:52.1 win in the $11,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 2 & 3 Handicap as the 7-5 favourite.

Clearing control from post 5, Casimir Swamp Girl led through opening fractions of :27.3 and :55.4 before facing minor pressure to the far turn from Larjon Legacy. By three-quarters in 1:23.4, Casimir Swamp Girl held firm on the lead and strode into the stretch two lengths clear of pocket-sitter Manhattan Night chasing in second while YS Tallia rallied off cover for third.

Owned by William Pendleton, Casimir Swamp Girl won her ninth race from 15 starts this season and her 17th from 28 overall, earning $91,451. Colin Kelly drove the four-year-old Up The Credit mare for trainer Kyle Bossence. She paid $4.70 to win.

CT Conabra capped the card by overcoming far turn traffic to rally to a 1:57.4 win the $9,500 Preferred 3 Trot.

Ramas Last Son led the field to a :28.4 first quarter with Katch Kanna sitting the pocket. CT Conabra meanwhile raced last in an eight-horse field up to a :59.3 half, when Bastiano tipped first over to lead the two-wide flow.

Driver Brett MacDonald caught cover with CT Conabra to race third over through three-quarters in 1:28.1 and soon launched the four-year-old Kadabra stallion wide into the final turn. Ramas Last Son led by a slim margin into the stretch as CT Conabra swept to the lead and away from the competition to win by two-and-a-quarter lengths. Tax Savings, the 3-2 favourite, closed from second over for second while Bastiano settled for third.

Trained by Richard Moreau for owners Brad Grant and Jason Badder, CT Conabra won his first race from eight starts this season and his fifth from 23 overall, earning $136,406. He paid $9.50 to win.
