Blueberry Will extended her winning streak to five-in-a-row Monday evening at Woodbine Racetrack, and in doing so she gave trainer Murray Brethour a sweep of the Blossom Series divisions.
Blueberry Will, in rein to Sylvain Filion, was looped by Noone To Depend On at the quarter pole before moving around that foe when they entered the backstretch. Blueberry Will then chopped out middle fractions of :56.2 and 1:25.4 before scooting home in :29.2 to secure to neck decision over Noone To Depend On in 1:55.1. Mattjestic Tempo came on strong to finish third.
John Fleischman and Randy Hodgins share ownership on the daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Credible Blu. The lion’s share of the loot lifted her bankroll to $47,550.
Earlier on the card, Windsun Glory won her division with the greatest of ease for driver Chris Christoforou. The homebred daughter of Mach Three-Windsun Princess got away fifth in the early going while Radar Trap and Boozer Bruiser battled to the quarter pole in :28.1. Radar Trap eventually cleared, only to be overtaken by Money Magic at the half in :57.3. Windsun Glory made a bold move in the backstretch and swept up to grab the lead at the three-quarter pole in 1:27.1. She then used a :29.2 kicker to win by 3-1/4 lengths over Radar Trap in 1:56.3. Money Magic took home the show dough.
Brethour shares ownership on the three-time winner with Windsun Farm Inc, Kevin McKinlay and Jim Fielding. The lightly-raced lass has stashed away more than $36,000 to date.
