Equity Doubles Up In Georgian Preferred

Published: September 5, 2010 01:20 am EDT

Kan Wire was looking to wire the field of Preferred 2 trotters but couldn’t hold off Equity, who came flying home off cover to win Georgian Downs' Saturday night feature, worth $14,000, for the second consecutive time


Driver Dan Clements settled the four-year-old gelded son of Kadabra-Earl Of My Dreams in fifth position after leaving from Post 6 while inside starter Kan Wire (Aaron Byron) put up a :28.1 opening quarter. As the leader headed to the half :58.4, Equity moved into the outer flow. The Ontario Sires Stakes graduate proceeded to go three-wide past the next marker of 1:27.4 and battled with the pacesetter down the lane, eventually prevailing by a quarter-length in 1:57. Stick Man Moe (Denis St. Pierre) finished two and a quarter lengths behind in third.

Equity paid $3.50 to win as the bettor’s choice. Charalambos Christoforou trains and co-owns the winner of two races in six starts this year and $29,440 with Banjo Farms of Toronto, ON. Equity now sports 13 wins and $516,760 in earnings on his resume.
