Lets Leavem left his rivals in the dust in tonight’s Racing Under Saddle trot at Kawartha Downs as he won by more than 12 lengths.
Sarah Town owns the seven-year-old gelding by Angus Hall and she also rode him in tonight’s event which was the first appearance by the RUS riders at the Fraserville track this year. Shane Arsenault trains the winner who was recording his sixth win of the 2017 season.
On Kawartha’s previous race card, leading driver Nick Boyd reached the milestone of 100 lifetime wins. He quickly added to that total tonight with a pair of wins including with Liplock, a two-year-old filly he trains who was recording her first lifetime win.
A daughter of Art Major, Liplock was making her fourth career start. The consistent miss had never finished worse than third and earned her first trip to the winner’s circle with tonight’s 1:57.2 effort.
Kiss Me Or Not provided Nick with his second win as they hauled down pacesetter Oakrock Eldorado to win in 1:54.3. It was a seasonal best for the Mach Three six-year-old daughter owned and trained by Dave Snowden.
Next Saturday marks the final race night at Kawartha Downs for the 2017 season and features the Shorelines Drivers’ Championship for the track’s top drivers of the year including Boyd and Rick Webb who recorded a driving triple this evening. Post time is 7 p.m.
