The first of Waples’ trio came in the third race, a C$15,000 conditioned event for fillies and mares, in which he found the winner’s circle via a late quarter pole move. Waples was at Dana and Phillip Steinberg and Robert Rosenheim’s En Point’s lines for her 1:554 mark-setting mile. A three-year-old Artiscape filly trained by Tom Artandi, En Point was making her second start of the year after having gone unraced as a 2-year-old.

Waples’ next tally came in the sixth dash while aboard Brett, Morris, and Connor Wright’s Precious Relation, who is conditioned by Paul Smith. Returning $12.40 on a win ticket, the 4-year-old daughter of Precious Bunny was also competing in a $15,000 conditioned race for fillies and mares. Entering the race with a previous mark of 2:02, Precious Relation got the lead in the final turn and shaved six and one-fifth seconds off of that mark with a victory timed in 1:554.

In the ninth race of the night, a $16,000 conditioned raced for fillies and mares, Waples went gate-to-wire with the Fred Hoffman-trained and the Hoffman Stables and Join Venture Stables owned Clearly Killean in a mark-lowering 1:542 mile. A 5-year-old Run The Table mare, Clearly Killean notched her fourth score of the year in her 16th attempt, and now has six wins in her career and has earned $54,578, lifetime.

Waples, who has driven the winners of over C$2.3 million on the Woodbine circuit this year and over $49 million in his career, has won divisions of the Burlington Stakes twice in his career, with Million Dollar Cam and Red River Hanover, both in 2002.
