Judiths Wild Rush ($2.80) toyed with his six opponents in the $150,800 at Woodbine, winning under a hand ride from Jim McAleney.

Judiths Wild Rush tracked front-running Twisted Wit through fractions of 22.92 and 45.95 seconds. He took control along the rail nearing the quarter pole, and then drew clear in the stretch to prevail by four lengths over a closing Gangster. The final time was 1:22.51.

"This horse is going to go on and do great things," said McAleney. "He's right on top of his game."

Judiths Wild Rush, Canada's champion sprinter last year, earned $90,000 for Tenenbaum Racing Stable and trainer Reade Baker.
