Odds-on favourite Twin B Hugs went wire to wire to win the faster of two $7,300 divisions of the Prospect Series Three-Year-Old Filly Trot fourth preliminary with a 2:01 victory on Saturday (Aug. 29) at Georgian Downs.

Driver Travis Henry hurried Twin B Hugs from post 7 to the lead while pylon-starter Bellona secured the pocket to a :30 first quarter. Twin B Hugs raced under minimal pressure through middle fractions of 1:01 and 1:30.4 as Annual Royalty attempted to gain ground first over tracked by Stonebridge Sydney. Through the stretch Twin B Hugs strolled to a two-and-a-quarter length win chased by Stonebridge Sydney in second, with Bellona faltering to third.

Co-owned by trainer Francis Dumouchel with Ecurie CSL and 9174 7998 Quebec Inc., Twin B Hugs won her second race from 18 starts, earning $18,457. The Muscle Mass filly returned $3.00 to win.

The Kadabra filly Kads Kiss kicked out of the pocket to pull a 12-1 upset in the other Prospect division, stopping the clock in 2:01.2.

St Helens protected position at the pylons to take the lead to a :29.3 first quarter with Kads Kiss ducking into second. Race-favourite Ella sat fourth to a 1:00.2 half before angling first over towards the backstretch. St Helens maintained control as Ella applied pressure to three-quarters in 1:30.3 and moving to the top of the stretch. But as the passing lane opened, Kads Kiss darted around competition and edged a half length in front of St Helens to the finish with Ella another length back in third.

Returning $27.40 to win, Kads Kiss won her first race from eight starts this season and his second from 16 overall, earning $17,553 for trainer-driver Bruce Richardson and co-owners Joseph Coffey and Morley Bosomworth.
