Kneedeep N Custard forged to the front and jogged in the Fraser Downs open pace at 4/5 on Friday, Mar. 19.
 
The five-year-old gelding held an outside position coming through the first bend, and reinsman Kelly Hoerdt encouraged him on to take command of the race. The horse complied and cleared just past the quarter in 27.3. The shortened field of three others allowed Kneedeep N Custard a 56.2 half, but Paperback Thriller (Brandon Campbell) launched a first-over move going by three-quarters in 1:25.2.
 
Those two battled for a short period, but Kneedeep N Custard soon kicked away and extended to win by two and a quarter lengths under wraps. Cusdmagicdragon (Allan Molloy) came on for place, and Paperback Thriller was third. The winner paid $3.90.
 
Kneedeep N Custard's win started his 2021 campaign perfectly, and it brought his win total up to 21 from 36 starts lifetime. He's earned $245,822 for Hoerdt, who also trains, Blair Corbeil of Beamont, and Fred Gilbert of Brandon.
 
Hoerdt scored four in total on the card; Campbell had three.
