Falls For You Dominates In Conway Hall

Falls For You and driver Brian Sears toyed with their rivals at Vernon Downs on Friday as they brushed to the lead at the half and never looked back to win the $133,500 Conway Hall.

The 2008 Armbro Flight champ started from Post 5 for Sears and dropped into third, tracking Godiva Hall (Andy Miller) and Norway No Day (Yves Filion) to the :26.3 opening panel. Sears pulled on the right line down the backside and Falls For You took charge with ease before the :57 half.

Godiva Hall did her best to stay with Falls For You in the pocket, but she was gapped by three lengths at the 1:25.1 three-quarters and the backfield was showing no sign of life.

Falls For You was under a hand drive through the stretch and was the easiest of winners by seven lengths in 1:53.1.

Norway No Day won the place photo over Bruschette (Ron Pierce).

After seven races, Sears had already collected four wins on the program.

Trond Smedshammer trains Falls For You for the partnership of Fair Winds Farm Inc., Theodore Gewertz and Willow Pond LLC. In 10 tries this season, she has three wins and earnings of $328,562. The four-year-old Yankee Glide mare has 13 career wins from 41 starts and boasts a bankroll of $1,131,826.
