It’s not even April yet and claiming pacer Matt’s Wolfey already has recorded four wins and hit the board seven times in 2013.

On Wednesday night, the Dave Cornachione trained mare dropped back down to the class in which she had done her damage last season. Bruce Aldrich, Jr. piloted the 7-year-old mare as they sat behind frontrunner Taylor Rei (Stephane Bouchard). Matt’s Wolfey (Final Cheers), the race’s 4-5 favorite, cruised up the passing lane to prevail in 1:59 for her fourth victory on the young season. Taylor Rei finished second while Princess Grenada (Chris Long) closed for third. It was the 20th win in the career of Matt’s Wolfey.
