Dorsoduro Hanover sharply preps for Crown with 10-1 win

Milton, ON — Dorsoduro Hanover, with Matt Kakaley in the bike, won the $34,000 Preferred for trainer Ron Burke at Woodbine Mohawk Park on Saturday in 1:49.4, topping four others eligible to next week’s Breeders Crown Open Pace.

Youaremycandygirl (L. Roy) and Courtly Choice (James MacDonald) left alertly, with the mare taking a short lead until Courtly Choice got the lead, followed by favorite Geez Joe (David Miller) and Dorsoduro Hanover in a first quarter of :26.1.

Geez Joe took to the outside and rushed to the top, keeping the pace through a :55.1 half.

Dorsoduro Hanover came out and fired first over, reaching Geez Joe around the second turn in three-quarters timed in 1:23.1.

Dorsoduro Hanover plowed ahead to take command as Geez Joe was overtaken by a closing Jimmy Freight and a persistent Youaremycandy girl, crossing the wire in 1:49.4.

Dorsoduro Hanover (Somebeachsome—Deer Valley Miss) was bred by Hanover Shoe Farm, is owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Dorsoduro Hanover paid $22.50 to win.
