Brodys Scrapper has found a best friend in Grand River Raceway, and it showed in Monday’s solid score in the $11,500 Preferred 2 for horse and gelding pacers.

Sent off as the 8-5 favourite, the veteran pacer posted his third victory from his last four assignments over the oval for co/owner/driver Travis Cullen and co-owner/trainer Rachel Andrew.

Cullen got away last in the five-horse affair with Brodys Scrapper, who watched Premier Joy A, Pro Beach and G A Speed Sammy battle to the quarter pole in :27.1. Pro Beach eventually worked to the top and served up a hot half clocking of :55.3 before being pressed by stablemate YS Lotus to the three-quarter pole in 1:25. Brodys Scrapper tracked cover before kicking off that golden tow in the late stages of the mile. His :28.4 closing quarter earned him the one-length triumph over Pro Beach in 1:54.1. YS Lotus was third.

The nine-year-old son of Mach Three-Witness To Fame has racked up a 6-2-2 record this season from 21 opportunities. The 34-time winner pushed his lifetime earnings over $270,000 with the win.

Oceanview Magnum broke out of a slump with his 1:55 triumph in the first of three $8,500 Preferred 3 affairs for horse and gelding pacers.

The Richard Moreau trainee, who last visited victory lane on July 26, took advantage of the scenery change and picked up a nice, confidence-building triumph for driver Brett MacDonald. They led the field through fractions of :27.1, :56.3 and 1:25.3 before using a :29.2 closing panel to seal the deal. Always Flashing was next best with Walter Mitty grabbing the show dough.

It was the sixth win of the season and the 26th to date for the five-year-old son of Western Paradise-Southview Sally. Keith Cassell of Smiths Falls, Ont. owns the career winner of $170,320.

Travis Henry used the same tactical approach to win the second division of the $8,500 Preferred 3 for horse and gelding pacers with Chocolate Swirl.

The Fred Bourgault trainee rolled the field through panels of :27.4, :57.4 and 1:26.1 before using a :29.1 final frame to win by a pair of lengths over Jake Loewen in 1:55.2. Rounding out the Trifecta ticket was Hes Got Swagger.

The victory improved his 2020 record to 5-0-3 from 15 starts and it bumped his seasonal bankroll over $26,000. The six-time winner went over $70,000 in earnings for owner Keith Cassell of Smiths Falls, Ont.

American Wiggle survived a tough, first-over trip en route to capturing his $8,500 Preferred 3 assignment for horse and gelding pacers. Paul MacKenzie kept him alive on the rim and then prevailed by three-quarters of a length over race favourite Jay Eye Em in 1:55.4. Sir Galahad was third.

Sent off at odds of 6-1 for trainer/co-owner Daniel Martin, the six-year-old son of American Ideal-Armbro Beachbaby improved his 2020 record to 5-3-2 from 20 starts with the win. The 22-time winner, who is co-owned by Gaston Bibeau, bumped his career bankroll over $350,000 with the win.
