On Thursday at Woodbine Racetrack, a field of eight 3-year-old pacing fillies squared off in the second leg of the Miss Vera Bars. Cracklin Rosie, who won the first leg, was a race-day scratch, leaving the door open for a new winner heading into next week's final.
Bad As Leader, one of three Victor Puddy trainees in the field, went gate-to-wire for a 1:55.4 victory. Driven by Trevor Henry, the daughter of Badlands Hanover got her own way through fractions of :29, :58.2 and 1:27.3 before pacing home in :28.1 to win by two lengths. Windsun Glory finished second, while Im In Luv was third.
Bad As Leader now has three wins in five starts this season and five victories overall in her young career. She is owned by Bill Manes and William Cripps.
Friday's victory pushes her career earnings over $47,000. Bad As Leader paid $10.10 to win.
The Miss Vera Bars Series will wrap next Friday, Feb. 19, with the $41,600 final. (WEG)
