Toronto, ON — In just the first start of her 4-year-old campaign, Maven lowered the Woodbine track record and equaled the Canadian record for older trotting mares in her $29,100 division of the Miss Versatility Series on Monday night (May 20).

Maven won her division in a track record time of 1:52.

Maven, who captured the Breeders Crown last October at Woodbine, got under the wire first in 1:52 for regular pilot Yannick Gingras.

One More Ginny (Mario Baillargeon), Woodbine’s track record holder in the 3-year-old filly category, set the tempo through panels of :25.4, :55.1 and 1:24.2 as Maven came first-over around the final turn and marched past One More Ginny down the stretch en route to a comfortable 3-1/4 length score. One More Ginny stayed for second with Personal Style (David Miller) third.

Trained by Jonas Czernyson and owned by William Donovan, Maven lifted her career bankroll to $929,299. The daughter of Glidemaster put away an 8-5-0 record last season from 15 starts and banked $759,155. She paid $2.60 to win.

The previous track record for an older trotting mare was set by Mystical Sunshine in a time of 1:52.2.

Beatgoeson Hanover was a 1:55.3 winner for driver David Miller.

In the second and final division, Beatgoeson Hanover (David Miller) delivered as the heavy favorite in 1:55.3 over a sloppy track.

The daughter of Andover Hall came from off the pace through panels of :27.3, :59 and 1:27.1, before coming off cover to score her 23rd career tally. Bax Of Life (Chris Christoforou) finished second with Real Babe (Tim Tetrick) finishing third.

Trained by Richard ‘Nifty’ Norman for owner Neven Botica, Beatgoeson Hanover increased her career bankroll to $1,022,050. The trotting miss now has a 4-1-0 record from eight starts this season, with earnings of $61,350.
