A jump up in class didn't seem to bother Most Wanted Lindy, a 6-year-old Cantab Hall gelding, as he won the $11,000 featured trot in 2:03, for owners, Scott T West of Vernon NY, and Katie A Currie of Surrey British Columbia, Canada, at Buffalo Raceway Friday night (Feb. 8). It was the third win in five attempts this season for Most Wanted Lindy.
Dismissed by the bettors at 10-1, Most Wanted Lindy ($22.20) and reinsman Billy Dobson settled in fifth as eventual third place finisher Perfect Man (Dave McNeight III) hit the quarter-pole in :30.2. Second place finisher Hailstorm Volo (Jack Flanigen) retook the lead just past the quarter and cut the fractions to half in 1:01.4, and three quarters in 1:32.3. A heated battle occurred in the stretch, which saw Most Wanted Lindy prevail by ¾ of a length at the finish line.
Trained by Scott West, the $5,500 share of the winning purse put Most Wanted Lindy's seasons earning at $15,012, and $100,774 lifetime. It was his 12th win in 75 lifetime starts.
