Hastings: Evelyn's Dancer cruises in Monashee


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Evelyn’s Dancer paid $4.20 for her easy front-running win in the $50,000 Monashee for fillies and mares. With Aaron Gryder aboard, Evelyn’s Dancer was never put under pressure at any time, and the 1 1/16-mile race was pretty much over when she posted a modest half-mile time of 49.35 seconds.

She took a 1 1/2-length lead over Overvalued into the stretch and increased the margin to two lengths at the finish. Overvalued , who stalked Evelyn’s Dancer the whole way, held on to finish second in front of Castinette Dancer.

The final time was 1:44.96.

Evelyn’s Dancer and Castinette Dancer are trained by Troy Taylor.
