Malabrigo's Storybook Season Continues

Published: September 30, 2012 07:10 pm EDT

Malabrigo's picture perfect sophomore season continued on Sunday's stakes card at Truro Raceway as the phenomenal filly pushed her win streak to 14 in the Carl & Marg MacKenzie Memorial Stakes.

With trainer-driver Marc Campbell in the sulky, Buntainwood Farm's Malabrigo overcame an outside post seven start and carved out fractions of :29, :59.2 and 1:29.1 en route to a 1:59.1 victory over the 'good' surface in her $7,936 division. Pictonian Amanda (Mike Steveson) and Oduya (Clare MacDonald) rounded out the top three finishers.

The Western Paradise-Lots Abunny filly now boasts 21 wins in 25 career starts (14-for-14 this year) and has never finished worse than third. The lion's share of the purse lifted her bankroll to $65,418.

Campbell also drove Painting The Town Stable's Windemere Nancy to a 2:00 victory in another filly division for trainer Earl Watt and guided Dukes Up to a 1:57.2 score in one of the colt splits for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reginald MacPherson.

Andrew Ward's homebred A As Glory and trainer-driver Gilles Barrieau won the other filly division in 1:58.4 while Touch Of Lightning and trainer-driver Allan Earl Smith captured the other colt stake in 1:56.4 for owners Peter and Don Smith, Gerald Morrissey, and Larry Chappell.

Two-year-old pacing colts also faced off during the Sunday afternoon card in a single $10,570 Nova Scotia Stake division with The Rev and trainer-driver Danny Romo prevailing in 1:59.2. The Western Paradise-Red Sea colt rallied home off the cover of eventual second-place finisher Scamp Finesse (Clark MacDonald) to win by half a length. The popular pacesetter, J B Bolt (Redmond Doucet), finished third.

The Rev now boasts four wins and four seconds in nine career starts with earnings totalling $18,912 for owners Robert and Jeffrey Skinner, and Stephen Tufts.
