It was worth the drive to Leamington on Monday afternoon for trainer Cassidy Schneider as the young conditioner celebrated her first lifetime win with trotter Yoooukilis.
Schneider recruited Marc St. Louis, Jr. to driver the veteran trotter, and as a team they had no problem getting the job done. Yoooukilis shot to the lead and carved out fractions of :30.2, 1:01 and 1:31 before slipping home in :30.4 to win by four lengths over Jooner in 2:01.4.
It was the 11th lifetime start for the third generation horsewoman who now boasts a 1-1-1 record to date.
