Yursa Hanover Goes Wire to Wire in Conway Hall at Vernon Downs
Yursa Hanover blew away six standout rivals while breezing to a 1:54.2 triumph in Friday night's $150000 Conway Hall open mare trotting contest at Vernon Downs. Second choice to Windsong Soprano in the sixth race wagering, Yursa Hanover ($6.90) went right to the lead from post four and led through splits of :27.3, :57-flat and 1:26 en route to a 1-1/2 length verdict over the crown-wagering choice. Autumn Escapade finished another half-length back in third, while Buck I St. Pat, racing for purse money only due to a scratch of stable mate Southwind Wasabi, finished fourth. Daniel Dube did the driving for trainer Benoit Baillargeon as the 4-year-old daughter of Windsong's Legacy-Yankee Topaz earned her third season's score and 12th lifetime tally. Richard Berthiaume owns the career-winner of $820835, who posted her 1:52.3 record earlier in the campaign.
