Feed Your Head was victorious in the $30,000 Marion Dancer, conquering four other two-year-old filly trotters for driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Jimmy Takter on Friday afternoon (August 26) at Freehold Raceway.

While her stablemate Grand Idea broke stride behind the gate from the inside, Feed Your Head left from post four and raced three-wide into the first turn before clearing to command during a :28.4 opening quarter. She then cruised through rated middle fractions of 1:00.1 and 1:30.3 before kicking away from first over Romancing Rachel in a :28.4 final quarter to score the victory in 1:59.2 by two and a quarter lengths. Southwind Prius and Spending Spree followed in second and third while Romancing Rachel faded to fourth.

Feed Your Head paid $4 to win as the even-money favourite. The win was her second in a row following a victory in the Kindergarten Series on August 18 at Vernon Downs. The Muscle Hill-Flawless Bluestone filly is now two-for-seven to start her career with earnings just over $35,000 for owner Mellby Gard Inc.
