overcoming her assigned post 6 to clear the early lead, owner-trainer Danielle Neil's Phoos Girl ($5.80) made every call a winning one and parried a late rush from Cenalta Call Girl to take Saturday's (Feb. 2) featured $10,500 Fillies and Mares Preferred 2 Pace at Flamboro Downs.

The six-year-old Badlands Hanover mare used a :28.1 first quarter to clear Robintheatm (Brett MacDonald) before continuing under absolutely no pressure through conservative middle fractions of :58.4 and 1:27.4 rated by Marc St. Louis. As first-over challenger Tilikum stalled — but did not regress — on approach to the far turn, Cenalta Call Girl (Robert Shepherd) mounted a sweeping three-wide bid, rallying boldly off the home turn.

Despite the presence of two late challengers — Cenalta Call Girl and pocket rival Robintheatm, Phoos Girl held her ground to seal victory in 1:57 over good going by a head. Cenalta Call Girl lifted for runner-up honours over the stoutly-chasing Robintheatm.

For 22-time winner Phoos Girl, the win was her third straight in the Preferred 2 ranks at Flamboro.

In the sub-featured $8,500 Fillies and Mares Preferred 3 Pace, Village Jamie ($16.50) found room up the open stretch to nab Twice An Angel in the final 70 yards for a 1:56.1 score. Paul MacKenzie drove the five-year-old Mach Three mare for owner Liam Wallace and trainer Todd Clements.
