Northlands: Toccetive just gets up in Speed to Spare


Under a perfectly timed ride by Rafael Zenteno, Toccetive rallied to edge Real Dingo by a neck in the $100,000 Speed to Spare for 3-year-olds and up at Northlands Park Saturday. He paid $6.20 as the second choice in the wagering behind Senor Rojo, who set a moderate pace before tiring to finish third.

The final time for the 1 3/8-mile feature was 2:23.00.

Toccetive, trained by Joan Petrowski, became the first horse to win the Grade 3 Canadian Derby and Speed to Spare in the same year.
