Betit To Getit ($8.70) continued her perfect 2016 campaign as she notched her third straight victory for the Rick Zeron stables in winning this week’s $30,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred Pace.
Parked from the outside post six as Ms Mac N Cheese (Sylvain Filion) gunned out for the lead from post four and insider Waasmula (Trevor Henry) closed the pocket, Betit To Getit forged on through a 26-second opener and eventually cleared to command into the backstretch. From there, she led the field of talented mares through middle splits of :55.1 and 1:24.1 and held clear of Ms Mac N Cheese down the stretch as that rival chased her home in second-place and Waasmula followed in third. Betit To Getit lowered her season’s mark to 1:51.4.
Zeron trains and drives the six-year-old No Pan Intended mare for owner Billholland Racing of Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ont. Betit To Getit is now a 31-time career winner with $326,734 in the bank.
