Kawartha Downs’ regulars Dagfin and Per Henriksen were both winners tonight at Woodbine Racetrack. Dagfin’s Lady Ping captured the first of two $20,000 opening leg divisions of the Lifetime Dream Series.
Dagfin guided the four-year-old Muscle Mass daughter to the easy 1:58.3 three length effort. Dr. Brett Anderson of Port Hope, Ontario, bred and shares ownership of the winner of over $120,000 lifetime with Dagfin and Kyle Anderson of Alberta.
The second leg of the series goes next Monday and the $40,000 final will be contested on January 25.
In the evening’s sixth race, a $20,000 trot, Per Henriksen’s In Secret was a winner in 1:56.2. Dagfin’s Jayport All Muscle closed well to be third in that race.
Per’s Asa Farm of Norwood shares ownership of the winner, a four-year-old gelding by Deweycheatumnhowe, with Andrea Lea Racing Stables of Quebec.
Per is one of Kawartha Downs’ OHHA reps while Dagfin serves as the track’s blacksmith.
