Madame Roar swoops in from Maryland


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Maryland shipper Madame Roar set a rapid pace and kept on going for an emphatic six-length victory in Friday's $102,800 at Woodbine.

Madame Roar jumped out to a clear lead and set splits of 21.71 seconds and 44.26 in the five-furlong dash for fillies and mares. She had an eight-length lead at the eighth pole, and coasted home on top in a final time of 57 seconds.

"She's the quickest horse I've ever been on," said Jono Jones, who rode Madame Roar.

Madame Roar returned $3.10 as the favorite and banked $61,680 for SJB Stable and trainer Frank Passero Jr.

Mysterious Affair was second in the six-horse field, 1 1/2 lengths ahead of third-place finisher Dreams Go Bye.
