Apache White Foot captured the lone $7,500 third leg division of the Juggernaut Pacing Series featured on Saturday night's harness racing card at Sudbury Downs.

After sitting third through early fractions of :29.4 and :59.4, Gerry Belanger sent the Whitefish Falls-Apache Raindrop gelding to command and hit the three-quarters mark in 1:28.4. The pacer then kicked home in :28.4 to seal the deal. Apache White Foot stopped the clock in 1:57.3, winning by nearly two lengths over early leaders Pass The Deuce and Jason Ryan. Frisky Burl and Paul MacLean finished third.

Apache White Foot paid $3.20 to win as the odds-on favourite.

The roan gelding won his first leg division of the series before finishing second in round two behind the absent Better Get Ready, who destroyed the sophomore track record with a 1:53.4 eye-catching 15-1/2 length score.

Apache White Foot is trained and owned by Brittany Robertson of Chelmsford, Ont.
He now sports a record reading 6-7-3 in 27 starts during his four-year-old season and a bankroll totalling $32,605.

The Juggernaut is for pacers that are five years old and younger and non-winners of two races or $20,000 lifetime (fillies & mares $27,500 lifetime) as of midnight, Saturday, July 7, 2012. No additional allowances.

The series will wrap up with a $22,500 (estimated) final on Saturday, August 18.

Sudbury's leading trainer France MacLean won three of the evening's eight races in a row with Paul MacLean driving I Am Sam Iam, former Juggernaut competitor Dannys Atthedance and Justa Regular Joe to victory lane. Paul ended the night with a driving grand slam, also scoring with Meighan MacLennan trainee Foxys Fire Water.
