Not Bourbon pulls away


Not Bourbon ($5.70) blew by even-money favorite Stuck in Traffic on the turn en route to a comfortable score in the $150,000 Queenston Stakes at Woodbine.

Stuck in Traffic opened up a substantial lead on the backstretch in the seven-furlong sprint, while setting quick fractions of 22.35 seconds and 44.49. Not Bourbon began to close the gap heading into the turn and he hit the front inside the quarter pole before drawing off to win by five lengths. Stuck in Traffic maintained second, and Shadowless finished a distant third in the five-horse field of Ontario-bred 3-year-olds.

Not Bourbon covered the distance in 1:21.86 under Jono Jones. He earned $90,000 for owner Charles Fipke and trainer Roger Attfield.
