Father Patrick Wins Canadian Trotting Classic
Proving his dominance once again after his Hambletonian miscue, Father Patrick captured the 39th edition of the $682,000 Canadian Trotting Classic for driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Jimmy Takter during a stakes-packed Saturday night at Mohawk Racetrack.

Ironically, Father Patrick's Hambletonian winning stablemate Trixton made an unfortunate miscue at the start this time out for another bittersweet result for the Takter stable.

Meanwhile, Damfoolrmillionair fired across the track from outside the stablemates to establish the early lead over Muscle Matters and Harper Blue Chip with Il Sogno Dream parked out and Father Patrick outside second over. Damfoolrmillionair led the field in that order through opening fractions of :26.4 and :55.2.

Gingras then sent Father Patrick three-wide around the tiring Il Sogno Dream and moved up to challenge the leader as they approached the third quarter mark in 1:24. Father Patrick trotted by Damfoolrmillionair heading into the stretch and opened up three lengths on top.

E L Titan launched a late rally from the backfield but couldn't catch Father Patrick as he cruised home for the 1:52.4 triumph. E L Titan and Chris Christoforou finished second one and three-quarter lengths behind while Harper Blue Chip and Sylvain Filion were seven lengths back third.

Father Patrick paid $2.70 to win as the 1-5 favourite.

"It's definitely huge," said Gingras of winning his first Canadian Trotting Classic. "The Hambletonian is a race I'd like to forget. This is the second biggest race so it's nice to get it for him. He's a great horse. It was just that day, but I said it that day, it would be hard-pressed if he'd get beat again. From here on out, I think he'll be the best horse, no doubt."

The victory was Takter's third in the Classic. He also won the race in 2002 with Kadabra and was victorious in the 1997 edition with Red Xing.

Owned by the Father Patrick Stable, the Cantab Hall-Gala Dream colt is nine-for-11 in his $1.17 million three-year-old season.

“It was just a fantastic effort tonight," said co-owner John Fielding. "We’ve always thought this colt was the best colt I’ve ever owned. Jimmy, his wife Christina and myself have owned many, many great horses over the years. But this colt ranks up there as probably number one of all of them. It was disappointing at the Hambletonian, but tonight he was fantastic. It was just a great thrill."

"He went a huge trip. He was out the whole way, he never saw the rail," said Gingras, adding that is was unfortunate that Trixton made a break in stride.

"Trixton here I'm a little concerned over him," said Takter. "He had bad hind ankles, he had to have surgery in that one, and I didn't like the way he went behind the gate there and he got really rough. I think it could be the end of him [racing]."
