Waiting On A Woman's Win Streak Ends

Published: August 3, 2011 11:37 pm EDT

The winning streak is over. Waiting On A Woman made a costly miscue on the way to the quarter, missing out on a trip to the winner's circle for the first time in 11 starts on Wednesday night

.

The disappointing setback came in Atlantic Sires Stakes action during Old Home Week at Woodstock's Connell Park. Regular driver Corey MacPherson managed to get Waiting On A Woman to rally for the third spot in the first of two $5,100 divisions for three-year-old trotters.

Maple Leaf Spirit benefitted from the favourite's mistake, scoring in 2:04.4 for trainer-driver Ralph Annear, who co-owns with Steven Sorrie.

The other three-year-old division went to Greenoaks Farm's The Iceman Aireth and trainer-driver Marc Campbell in 2:06.

Two-year-old trotters also competed in a pair of $5,180 divisions. Perfect Posture scored in the first heat for Brian MacPhee in 2:10.3. The Donald Sweet trainee is now a perfect two-for-two in his career for owner Melvin Willis. Bert Honkoop's B J Carmalyta won the second split in 2:11.1 over a track listed two seconds off.

Old Home Week harness racing wraps up Friday night with a 12-dash card starting at 7 p.m. The $7,500 Kelti Burnett Memorial is the feature race.
