After skipping the second leg of the Define The World Series the Ben Baillargeon-trained Alarm Detector went into Thursday’s rich final fresh, fit and fierce. And he didn’t disappoint an army of backers that sent him off as the overwhelming favourite.
Alarm Detector, who was sent off at odds of 1-9, was parked by Cantabernet to the quarter pole in :28.2, but the favourite eventually muscled his way to the top in the backstretch. He cruised through middle panels of :58.1 and 1:26.4 before scooting home in :29.1 to win by 2-1/4 lengths over Cantabernet in a series record clocking of 1:56. Will Can Go was third.
Trevor Henry mapped out the winning trip for the two-year-old son of Chapter Seven-Final Countdown. The colt, who is owned by Tom & Elizabeth Rankin, Claude Hamel and Santo Vena, is now 4-for-4 in his career. The lion’s share of the purse bumped the rookie’s bankroll to $38,400.
