Trainer-driver Bruce Richardson took control of the pace with Stormont Kate past the quarter, endured a first-over challenge from Katch Kanna and held off a homestretch rush from Majestic Marvel to take the $11,500 Preferred 2 Handicap Trot on Thursday, Sept. 20 at Flamboro Downs.

Warrawee Shipshape led narrowly through a :27.4 first quarter while It Huw You Know parked first over with Stormont Kate on cover. Richardson cleared the front with his mare rounding the turn while Its Huw You Know sat pocket. Katch Kanna pulled first over from fourth heading to the half, giving cover to Majestic Marvel through a :57.1 clocking.

Katch Kanna stalled to three-quarters as he pressured Stormont Kate to three-quarters. Majestic Marvel circled three wide by the 1:26.4 third quarter and drew within a nose of the lead around the final turn as Katch Kanna retreated. Stormont Kate turned away Majestic Marvel in the lane to win by a half length in 1:56.3 and Its Huw You Know finished third.

A seven-year-old mare by Kadabra, Stormont Kate, collecting her fourth win in 14 starts and her 31st in 144 overall, has earned $315,198 in her career. She paid $6.50 to win.
