Rallying from third over, Pretty Handsome hustled to the front late to snag the $36,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Friday (Sept. 4).

Trailing in the field of seventh, Pretty Handsome sat 10 lengths off a :25.4 first quarter set by Wheels On Fire clearing to the lead. Wheels On Fire maintained his speed to a :54 half as Rockme Rollme pulled first over, catching cover as Matticulous GB tipped outside from fourth into the final turn.

Matticulous GB rushed to put a head in front of Wheels On Fire by three-quarters in 1:22 and took over command into the stretch. Rockme Rollme kicked off cover and dug into Matticulous GB through the stretch while Pretty Handsome angled widest of all and strode best to the finish. The five-year-old Mach Three gelding hit the finish three-quarter lengths better than Matticulous GB and Rockme Rollme in a 1:49.3 mile.

Owned by Glenview Livestock Ltd., Pretty Handsome won his fifth race from 12 starts this season and his 30th from 62 overall, earning $316,855. Bob McClure drove the $14.70 winner for trainer Lacey McCabe.

Trainer Carmen Auciello collected three wins on the card. His wins came with Betcha Baby ($13.10), Lady Rocknrolla A ($3.40) and Ivana Flybye N ($3.90).
