Story from Standardbred Canada (25 April)
Linedrive Hanover continues to rack victories to his card at Woodbine Mohawk Park. The Anthony Beaton trainee registered his ninth consecutive victory when taking the $28,000 featured pace at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday (April 23).
Driver James MacDonald settled the four-year-old BETTING LINE gelding off the wings to race sixth while East End grabbed the lead to a :27.1 first quarter. He cruised uncontested to a :56.2 half and faced pressure around the final turn when Wind Blown flushed first over – with Linedrive Hanover catching cover – to the final turn. East End held command by three-quarter sin 1:25.3 and turned away Wind Blown while MacDonald motored Linedrive Hanover off cover and slid by the pacesetter with ease to win by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:51.4 while pacing his final quarter in :25.3.
Owned by West Wins Stable, McKinlay & Fielding and Mac Nichol, Linedrive Hanover has banked $109,700 from 10 starts. He paid $2.50 to win.
