Garrett Rooney steered bettors' choice Scene A Magician to a gate-to-wire victory in 1:56.4 in the $13,000 Preferred Trot on Tuesday evening (March 21) at The Raceway at the Western Fair District.
Rooney directed the 6-5 favourite through fractions of :27.4, :58.1 and 1:27.1 before cruising home to a one-length victory over his opponents. Eyes Of Justice (Tyler Borth) followed the pocket trip to a second-place finish and Sizzlen Hot Herbie (Natasha Day) flew down the stretch to grab third.
Scene A Magician is a nine-year-old Daylon Magician gelding owned and trained by Jennifer Pinkerton. The Pinkerton trainee has 30 career wins and just over $360,000 in lifetime earnings.
Bucktober won his seventh start in a row with a 1:59.4 mile in the second race trot for trainer and driver Tyler Borth. Borth co-owns the four-year-old Flanagan Memory gelding with William Borth and Karen Sparling. Bucktober increased his career stats to 14 wins and $71,658 in earnings.
