Financingavailable coasts in record time

EmailFinancingavailable ($4.20) lowered Woodbine's six-furlong Polytrack record while winning the $174,000 Ontario Fashion Stakes.

Financingavailable covered the distance in 1:08.56, which was .28 of a second faster than the old record, set by Not Bourbon on Oct. 13.

Financingavailable stalked a fast pace set by last year's Fashion winner, Shot Gun Ela, before taking control at the top of the stretch. She opened up a clear lead at the eighth pole, then coasted home on top by two lengths over Count to Three. Lyrically was third in the 10-horse field of fillies and mares.

Financingavailable, last year's champion older female in Canada, earned $105,000 for owner K.K. Sangara.

"She's been a treat," said Jim McAleney, who rode the winner for trainer Lorne Richards. "I don't know if I've been around a horse who's been as good for as long as she has."
