Kan Wire front-stepped his way to a four and a half length score in the $14,000 Preferred 2 Trot for Team Zeron while Filly Hotspur and Idle Sun N doubled up in the Simcoe Claiming Series on Saturday night at Georgian Downs.

Kan Wire left from Post 2 in the evening’s feature event and carved out fractions of :29.1, :59.1 and 1:28.4 en route to a 1:58.4 victory over a track rated “good” and one second off for driver Scott Zeron and his father, trainer Rick Zeron. The winner’s stablemate, Andovers Son (Denis St. Pierre), and Aloft (Stephen Byron) finished second in a dead-heat.

Kan Wire ($3.10) notched his fourth win of the season in 19 starts and pushed his earnings to $45,310 this year and $331,849 lifetime. The seven-year-old gelded son of Valley Victor-Wired is owned by Team Z Stable of Oakville and Leslie Patterson of Stouffville, ON.

The Simcoe Claiming Series continued on Saturday night with three $7,000 divisions for trotters racing for a $7,200 price tag. Filly Hotspur and Idle Sun N were repeat winners with E L Miss Pom capturing the other split.

Filly Hotspur ($3.50), driven by Stephen Bryon, followed cover before striking the front in the stretch and kicking away by 13 and a half lengths. The time of the mile was 1:59.4. Paradise Lane N (Simon Allard) and Burnstown (Mike Langdon) rounded out the top three.

The six-year-old Valley Victor-Gias Performer mare is trained by Sandra Houghton for Lance Hall of Campbellville and Aristi Varsakis of Hamilton, ON. The win was her second (consecutive) in 11 outings this year and bumped her earnings to $8,735.

Idle Sun N ($4.40) and driver Simon Allard advanced to the lead after the opening quarter and held off Tiger On The Prowl (Scott Coulter) by a half-length to win his split in 2:02.2. Striking Lightning (Dan Clements) finished three-quarters of a length behind in third.

Allard’s brother, Rene, trains and co-owns the 13-year-old gelded son of Sondon-Idle Choice with Gilles Fleury of Mascouche, QC. Idle Sun N has won three times this season in 11 outings to earn $12,915.

The Allards also teamed up to win the other division with E L Miss Pom ($6.60), a runner-up in her first leg division. The six-year-old mare left from Post 8 and took control past the half-mile mark. She then opened up eight and a half lengths on the field before stopping the timer in 2:01. Baylon De Vie (Scott Coulter) and Dona Shy Lou (Pat Hudon) finished second and third.

Rene trains and co-owns the daughter of Wonder Worker One-Pom Derable with John Nother of Brampton, ON. The win was her eighth 26 starts this year and lifted her seasonal earnings to $40,694.
