After rallying to a Preferred Trot score at Woodbine Mohawk Park one week ago, Perfetto returned to the oval and manufactured a front-stepping triumph in Monday’s $34,000 main event.
Trainer/driver Dagfin Henriksen powered to the lead from Post 3 with Perfetto who carved out fractions of :27.3 and :57 before being pressed by a first-over Oney Hall to the three-quarter pole in 1:24.4. Perfetto shrugged off that challenge and used a :28.1 closing quarter to win by 1-1/2 lengths over All Wrapped Up in 1:53. Oney Hall settled for third prize.
Sent off as the 2-1 second choice in the wagering, the six-year-old son of Majestic Son-Perfect Prelude improved his 2021 record to 5-6-5 from 21 starts with the win. The 21-time winner, who is owned by Gerald Haggerty of Camden East, Ont., pushed his lifetime earnings to $$616,416 with the victory.
