Maplelea crushed her rivals for the second consecutive week in the Horseplayer Interactive series Friday night at Woodbine.
Headlining a field of seven 3-year-old pacing fillies, Maplelea was sent off as the 1-9 choice and performed just like her odds would indicate.
Driven by Rick Zeron, Maplelea made a second-quarter brush to the lead from third and reached the half in :57.2. After taking the field by the three-quarter pole in 1:26.3, Maplelea paced away from her rivals with ease down the lane to score a dominant 9 1/4-length victory in 1:53.4.' War Filly finished second, while Wake N Bake took third.
A 3-year-old daughter of Sportswriter, Maplelea is owned and trained by Andrew Moore. The sophomore pacing filly now has four wins from six starts in 2015 and seasonal earnings of over $46,000. The clocking of 1:53.4 knocks more than two-seconds off Maplelea's previous career mark of 1:56.
A $2 win ticket on Maplelea returned $2.20.
The Moore trainee will now have a chance at the Horseplayer Interactive series sweep in the $39,400 final next Saturday night, March 21. (WEG)
