Bouncing back from a sub-par 2006 debut, Peaceful Way was dominant for driver Trevor Ritchie in the lone $50,000(C) Armbro Flight elimination Saturday evening at Mohawk, as the sensational mare stopped the clock in 1:52.2, just one-fifth of a second off her Mohawk and Canadian record time.

The 5-year-old daughter of Angus Hall sat fourth at the :27.2 quarter pole before Ritchie pulled her first-up and cleared to the lead prior to the :56.2 half-mile marker. The bay reached the three-quarters call in 1:25.1 and trotted home in :27.1 for the 2½-length tally, the 29th of her career.

Ecstatic, who had left early with driver David Miller, finished second, with Mystical Sunshine, who was piloted by Paul MacDonell, third.

\"She\'s quite a little girl and she can go a hundred miles an hour,\" said Ritchie, who was in rein to the mare for co-owning trainer David Tingley. \"Tonight, things went a little smoother for her than last week. She just came off of the final turn, kicked in and did the job.\"

The draw for the $347,250 final was conducted in the paddock after the elim. With the victory, Peaceful Way\'s connections were able to select her post position for the final, and they chose the five hole.
