CATCH AN ACE WINS $58,000 FINAL OF PETTICOAT PACING SERIES
Though open to 3 and 4 year old ladies (non-winners of four races and/or $40,000 through last Dec. 1st), no "youngsters" qualified for the finale.
Away fifth from post position No. 5, Catch an Ace watched as outside numbers Cabowabocuttie (Jordan Stratton) and Ghosttothepost (Yannick Gingras) both left hard.
The pair looped 9-5 favorite Robyn Camden (Dexter Dunn), who was hung up three-wide early (outside the eventual winner) before settling in sixth. Cabowabocuttie seated Ghosttothepost, then led through intervals of a flat 28 seconds and 58.1.
Odds on Ashley (Matt Kakaley) was the first to take the bait, moving from third. She towed Ella is Awesome (Joe Bongiorno) and Catch an Ace, while the hellish trip of Robyn Camden saw her fourth-over.
Cabowabocuttie maintained her lead in and out of a 1:26.4 three-quarters, about the time Catch an Ace went three-deep around Ella is Awesome.
The lead remained unchanged off the final turn, with Cabowabocuttie owning a length and three quarter advantage. The lass would give way grudgingly in the scrum to the line. Catch an Ace picked off a stubborn Odds on Ashley by a head, with Robyn Camden widest of all, the circuitous route ending with her finishing third, beaten just a neck.
