Heyahohowdy takes Woodbine's Flaming Page


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Heyahohowdy ($6.10) held off favored Carib Lady in the drive to notch her second consecutive stakes Sunday at Woodbine in the $109,000 Flaming Page.

Heyahohowdy battled on the lead with Carib Lady and Five Fishes in the turf marathon for fillies and mares. She assumed a slim lead on the far turn, and kept on going to post a three-quarter length victory under Ray Sabourin.

"She had a perfect trip," said Sabourin. "She wasn't overly kind early, but she was a little more relaxed when I let her open up half-a-length. Every time somebody came to her, she went on."

Heyahohowdy, who also won the Aug. 24 Belle Geste Stakes, banked $65,400 for Kelynack Racing Stable and trainer Abraham Katryan.

Alpha Saphire finished a length behind Carib Lady in third. The final time, for about a mile and a half, was 2:33.82.
