Uffizi Hanover scores in Fan Hanover
Ontario-owned Uffizi Hanover provided Takter with his second stakes victory on North America Cup Night as she captured the $457,500 Fan Hanover Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies.
Driven by David Miller, Uffizi Hanover swept her elimination and the final as the 8-5 favourite for Al Libfeld of Pickering and Toronto partners Marvin Katz and Sam Goldband.
Take That Hanover (Mike Saftic) out-sprinted Bahama Blue (Mario Baillargeon) off the gate from mid-pack and put up a :26-second opening quarter before Miller sent last year's Breeders Crown champion Uffizi Hanover after the lead from third into the backstretch with Nat A Virgin (Rick Zeron) hot on her heels and sweeping up three-wide to take over command.
Nat A Virgin hit the half in :54.4 and opened up a couple of lengths on top en route to three-quarters in 1:23.2. Meanwhile, Major Dancer (Brian Sears) was advancing with Beach Gal (Tim Tetrick) stalking her cover.
Nat A Virgin was still clear on top entering the stretch, but Uffizi Hanover closed late to nab the victory in 1:50.4, with her final quarter clocked in :26.4. Nat A Virgin settled for second and Take That Hanover finished third.
"We had a good post, the inside [post two] so I used it to our advantage and got away close," explained Miller after the race. "It worked out where I could get her back to the lead and we got covered up and got out at the head of the stretch and just fired."
The Well Said-Up Front Dragonfly filly now has four wins in 15 career starts and earnings totalling $609,375. She paid $5.30 to win.
"I'm incredibly proud of her, but the real credit here has to go to Al Libfeld, my partner," said Katz, noting that his longtime friend was instrumental in convincing him to purchase a pacing filly. "When good things happen, like I said last year, it really feels like you're on top of the mountain."
