Fresh off a victory in the Preferred 3 last week, three-year-old pacing filly Noone To Depend On edged out her competition in the $10,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred 2 Pace on Wednesday night (October 26) for back-to-back wins at Flamboro Downs.
Noone To Depend On and driver Alfie Carroll secured a pocket trip behind Sing Like An Angel (Travis Cullen) through the :28.1 opening quarter. As Twin B Inspiring (J.R. Plante) swept up from third to take over at the half in :57.2, Carroll moved Noone To Depend On underway first over. Advancing outside, Noone To Depend On took second-place by the 1:25.3 third quarter mark and forged on down the stretch to nose out Twin B Inspiring at the wire in 1:55.4. Sing Like An Angel came through inside to make it into the three-way photo finish while favourite Regal Luck (Paul MacKenzie), winner of last week's Preferred 2, closed from the back of the six-pack, finishing less than a length behind.
Sent postward at odds of 6-1, Noone To Depend On paid $15.30 to win.
Victor Puddy trains the three-year-old daughter of Santanna Blue Chip and Tipsy Taters, who was a three-time Grassroots winner during the Ontario Sires Stakes season for owners Carl and Brandy Jamieson.
In this week's Preferred 3, sophomore filly Acefourtyfour Alex defeated pacesetter Bestulldotanight in 1:55.2 for trainer Gary Durbano and owners Michael Timpano, Colin Densley Burrows, and Paul Kelly.
After following in third-place through panels of :27.4, :57 and 1:25.4, driver J.R. Plante launched the favourite to the outside and she prevailed by three-quarters of a length. Miss Brandi K (Bob McClure) finished third inside, ahead of Tilikum (Denis St Pierre).
Acefourtyfour Alex paid $7.60 to win. The Sir Luck-Iliketomuvitmuvit filly has finished no worse than third in her last eight starts from the Durbano stable, racing at Georgian Downs, Grand River Raceway, Mohawk Racetrack and Flamboro Downs.
