Who’s Your Next Ex ($14.60), looking for room at the quarter pole, swung wide and unleashed a strong closing kick to capture the $19,700 Dennis Dodge Memorial on Sunday at Portland Meadows.

Jockey Deborah Hoonan-Trujillo found room to the outside as the field tightened coming to the quarter pole in the Dodge. With a clear path, Who’s Your Next Ex opened up through the lane, defeating Go Bubba Go by three lengths in 1:11.88 in the six-furlong race for 2-year-olds. Odds-on Chief Jafatica ran seventh.

Who’s Your Next Ex, a son of Harbor the Gold, earned $10,835 to lift his career earnings to $18,405 with 2 wins and 2 thirds in 4 starts for owner Kimberly J. Nobles and trainer Ann Peery.

* Catalina Harbor ($9.80), a daughter of Harbor the Gold, scored a three-quarter-length wire-to-wire victory over odds-on Italian Gold in the $19,550 Lassie Stakes, covering six furlongs in 1:12.29.

Catalina Harbor, a Bar C Racing Stable homebred coming off a victory in the Janet Wineberg Stakes, earned $10,753, increasing her career earnings to $24,143 with 2 wins and 3 seconds in 5 starts.
