Milton, ON — Captaintreacherous filly Reflect With Me established a new series record of 1:50.3 with a dominating victory in Tuesday’s (Aug. 13) final of the Whenuwishuponastar at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
A field of seven 2-year-old pacing fillies clashed in the C$50,000 series final. Round one winners Reflect With Me and Alexa Skye returned to action after a week off, while Somebeachsometime entered with plenty of momentum after a stunning victory in the second leg.
The opening quarter saw Dr. Ian Moore trainee Kat storm out to the lead and post a :27.3 opener. Stablemate Alexa Skye tipped off her back entering the backstretch to circle to the lead, but that was short-lived as driver Andy McCarthy started up Reflect With Me from third and the Tony Alagna trainee made a powerful brush to the lead.
Reflect With Me proceeded to put the series final to bed by pacing a :27.3 third quarter, followed by an easy-looking :26.4 kicker to win impressively by four lengths in 1:50.3.
Kat finished second, while Somebeachsometime rallied from sixth to finish third.
“I’ve been pretty careful with her just racing off the pace, and I kind of wanted to prove a point tonight and let everyone know how good she actually is,” said McCarthy following the victory. “She’s so slick gaited and smart and just does everything so easy.”
A $120,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase, Reflect With Me has two wins in four starts for owners Brittany Farms and Brad Grant. The daughter of Captaintreacherous gives her conditioner Alagna back-to-back series victories following last year’s triumph by Tall Drink Hanover.
Reflect With Me returned $3.90 to win.
Live racing resumes Thursday evening (Aug. 15) at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:10 p.m.
