After having not raced since the Ontario Sires Stakes Super Finals on November 15, 2008, O'Brien Award winner Nebupanezzar returned this morning during Mohawk Racetrack's eight-dash qualifying session.

The three-year-old No Pan Intended gelding started from Post 2 in Race 8. Nebupanezzar sat third through the opening half, which saw Mr Terror cut the fractions in :28.3 and :57.1.

Taking over control on the final turn, Nebupanezzar stopped the three-quarter timer in 1:25.3 and paced home in :27.4 for a five and a half-length victory in 1:53.2. Mr Terror finished second, pacing his mile in 1:54.2.

“I was happy with him,” Condren told the Woodbine Entertainment Group. “He sat in well and they were going enough up front. When I called on him, he was handy and got down the lane pretty good. I guess he had trained well a couple of times so he was up to that kind of mile today.

“He seemed good as far as soundness. Hopefully, he will progress off of this.”

Condren was also at the helm of a McIntosh trainee in Race 1, as two-year-old No Pan Intended filly Panangler recorded a one and a half-length victory in 1:56.4.

Five-year-old Angus Hall gelding No Gus No Glory was much the best from Post 9 in Race 2. Anthony MacDonald drove the James MacDonald pupil to an 11 and three-quarter-length victory in wire-to-wire fashion. The win time was 1:55.2.

Rap N Banker, a two-year-old Banker Hall gelding trained by Barry Drury, came from off the tempo in Race 3. With Jason Drury calling the shots, Rap N Banker posted a one and a half-length victory in 2:03.

In Race 4, Billy Davis, Jr. steered Digam to a half-length victory. The two-year-old Matts Scooter colt got the job done in 1:57.3.

Jewelcrest overcame a Post 10 start to notch a nose victory for driver Rick Zeron and trainer Wayne Preszcator in Race 5. The three-year-old Duke Of York filly stopped the clock in 2:01.3.

Race 6 saw five-year-old Grinfromeartoear gelding Clowns Smile record its first charted mile since Western Fair Raceway's $283,000 Molson Pace on May 29. Jody Jamieson drove the Casie Coleman pupil to a head victory this morning in a time of 1:52.2.

Six-year-old Perfect Spiral gelding Xtra Perfect was much the best in Race 7, as the Bill O'Donnell-driven and Terry Deters-trained bay trotted to a 12-length victory in 1:56.4.
