Paperback Thriller confidently brushed to the front and capture the Handicap Open Pace for harness racing fillies and mares at Fraser Downs on Wednesday, Mar. 31.
Brandon Campbell dropped Paperback Thriller into the two-hole through the opening quarter in :29.3 before sweeping to the front by three-eighths. They continued to lead unopposed in middle splits of :58.2 and 1:26.4.
Paperback thriller was solid and finished the job, withstanding a charge from the heavily favoured Cusdmagicdragon (Kelly Hoerdt) and cruising to a three-quarter-length victory in 1:54.4. Cusdmagicdragon got up for place, and Rockin Mystery (Rod Therres) was third. The winner paid $11.50.
That was Paperback Thriller's first win of the season. The six-year-old Mystery Chase mare has won 20 of her 94 lifetime starts and earned just shy of $150,000. Jim Marino trains for Raymond Henry of Calgary.
Also on the card, Hoerdt had a natural hat trick with wins aboard Night Stick (1:54.2) in the fourth, Chase Me Forever (1:54.4) in the fifth, and Im Too Sexy (1:56.4) in the sixth.
Fraser Downs' next card will consist of nine dashes and is scheduled for Friday, Apr. 2.
