Dropping down in class to the Preferred 3 level, Southwind Ion dominated the distaffers in the $8,500 featured finale on Friday night (August 17) at Grand River Raceway.

Paired up with driver Scott Coulter for the first time, Southwind Ion led gate-to-wire in a 3-3/4 length romp. The four-year-old Sportswriter mare paced fractions of :28.3, :57.3 and 1:26 before speeding away from her rivals when challenged on the final turn and stoppped the clock in 1:54.4. She has now paced her last four race miles in identical times.

Returning to the class she won on July 4, Southwind Ion was sent postward as the 2-1 slight second choice and paid $6.20 to win. Ok Jasmine and favoured Mach Magic completed the top three finish order.

Craig Gilmour trains the 13-time career winner for owner Steve Mihalic. Southwind Ion has earned six of those wins this year while making 24 starts across six different tracks in Ontario.
