Maven Shines in $130,000 American National Sophmore Filly Trot

Maven picked up seasonal win eight for driver Yannick Gingras by scoring a 1:54.3 confident, front-stepping victory in the $130,000 American National 3-Year-Old Filly Trot Saturday night, Nov. 10 at Balmoral Park.

The daughter of Glidemaster-M Stewart came into the American National fresh off a 1:54 victory in the $500,000 Breeders Crown Sophmore Filly Trot at Woodbine Raceway on Oct. 27 for these same connections.

Harnessed by Jonas Czernyson, the 1-9 favorite added the $67,600 winner’s share to her already bulging bankroll of $847,149 for owner W J Donovan of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

“She’s actually much better following another horse but I wanted her on the front end because with the wind coming down the stretch in our face the way it was doing all night, I knew it would be difficult to close,” Gingras said. “This filly has a very big motor in her and she really doesn’t like to be on the front, and can get a little distracted if she’s out there all by herself, but I wanted to be there tonight. I didn’t think she could get beat in there, but I wasn’t going to take any chances with her.”

Maven held off Feel The Pressure (Tim Tetrick) by 2¾ lengths, while Uncommon Night (Dave Magee) notched third place honors in the field of seven filly trotters.
