Hastings: Marketway gets perfect trip in Boulevard Casino Stakes


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Marketway got a perfect trip under Fernando Perez  to defeat Ten Thirty in the $50,000 Boulevard Casino Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Hastings on Sunday.

With Lady Henrietta setting pace from the three path, Marketway was biding her time while saving ground along the rail in the six-furlong sprint. Marketway made a strong move approaching the quarter pole, and after taking a half-length lead into the stretch, she increased her margin to 1 3/4 lengths over Ten Thirty, who had a wide trip. Lady Henrietta held on to finish third.

“I had a lot of horse the whole way, and she responded very well when I asked her,” Perez said.

The final time was 1:12.08. Marketway paid $4.10 to win.

Marketway is trained by Troy Taylor and owned by Glen Todd.

The Taylor-Todd-Perez team also won the $50,000 Supernaturel for 3-year-old fillies with heavily favored Evelyn’s Dancer on Saturday.  Evelyn’s Dancer led every step of the way in the 1 1/16-mile feature and paid $2.70. It was the fourth straight stakes win at Hastings for Taylor and Todd who have won eight of the 13 stakes contested at the current meet.
