Insincerity and Reasonable Force each earned their first victories of the year at Flamboro Downs on Saturday night as a pair of $7,500 Preferred 3 pacing events shared top billing on the Jan. 30 harness racing program.
Insincerity ($3.40) was a gate-to-wire winner in the fillies and mares division, with Bob McClure driving for trainer/owner William Hamm of West Lorne, Ont. The homebred seven-year-old daughter of Rambaran carved out panels of :29.3, 1:00.1 and 1:29.4 over the 'good' track en route to the 1:59.2 victory. Cyndalianne Duc (Paul MacKenzie) and Eat Me Up (Lorne House) advanced from the backfield in the outer flow to finish second and third, respectively.
Reasonable Force ($4.10) later tracked down Warrawee Phoenix, who was the leader in the co-feature for horses and geldings through fractions of :27.3, :56 and 1:24.4. Owner, trainer and driver Steve Hudon moved his five-year-old Shadow Play gelding out from fourth down the backstretch and came on to win in 1:55 flat. Warrawee Phoenix finished over four lengths behind while Akoya (Billy Davis Jr.) completed the top three finish order.
In other action, trainer Kris Di Cenzo and owner Madith Peterson of Oakville, Ont. celebrated a victory in the $5,000 fifth race with trotting mare Winem. The four-year-old Kadabra mare is their newest acquisition since the Jan. 4 fire at Classy Lane Training Centre in which Di Cenzo lost his entire stable, including Peterson's two horses Distant Cam and Lost Glory. J.R. Plante drove Winem ($3.60) to the 2:04.3 victory after pulling the pocket at the half-mile mark and keeping the wide-rallying I Feel Good (J Harris) at bay in the $10,000 claiming class.
