Sliding to the lead late in the mile, So Much More withstood a late challenge from Philly Hanover to win the $32,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred Pace at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday (Aug. 15).

Boadicea bolted for the top from the pylon post while So Much More tucked into second moving to a :27 first quarter and stayed put through a :55.4 half mile. However Boadicea began to labour into the final turn, prompting driver Louis Roy to angle So Much More out of the pocket approaching three-quarters in 1:24.4.

Into the stretch Boadicea faltered out of competition, leaving So Much More on the lead with Philly Hanover tracking from second over but soon attempting to kick off the helmet. Though So Much More maintained command through the stretch, finishing one-and-three-quarter lengths better than Philly Hanover—enduring broken equipment—in a 1:51 mile. Gias Surreal took third.

A four-year-old mare by Big Jim, So Much More won her seventh race from 18 starts this season and her 26th from 52 overall, earning $393,410. Don Beatson trains and co-owns the $7.60 winner with Kenneth Beatson and Cole England.
