Warrawee Koine Plays Spoiler In Trillium

A trip to Rideau Carleton Raceway proved to be a profitable one for Dr. Mike Wilson and Lobro Stables’ Warrawee Koine, who pulled off a 10-1 upset in the lone $72,442 division of the Trillium Series for three-year-old filly pacers.

The homebred daughter of Astreos-My Gal Hall front-stepped her way to the winner’s circle for driver Ted McDonald, who had the Gregg McNair trainee on the motor through panels of :27.4, :56.2 and 1:25.3 en route to the half-length score in 1:55. Run To Vegas, who applied pressure to the leader in the third quarter, held on gamely to finish second and Star Of Show rounded out the top three in the nine-filly affair.

Warrawee Koine, who was unraced as a rookie, started her sophomore season with four consecutive wins. She now owns a 6-1-1 record from 14 starts, and that translates into more than $100,000 in earnings.

In other Sunday evening action at Rideau Carleton Raceway, Imjustalittleguy and McDonald teamed up to win the $12,100 Preferred Pace in a time of 1:56.1.

McDonald mapped out a perfect two-hole trip for the seven-year-old son of Armbro Operative, who is the star student in his barn. The gelding watched Best Show In Town slice out splits of :28, :58.1 and 1:27.2 before using a :28.2 of his own to gain a half-length advantage on that foe in the closing strides. Third-place finisher Nocturnal was two lengths back in third.

Lloyd Stone of Portland and Dr. John Tobin of Elgin, ON share ownership on the 30-time winner, who has put together a 7-1-5 record in 21 starts this season. He has banked more than $61,000 this campaign, and more than $238,000 in his career.
