Milton, ON --- Jimmy Takter trainee Wolfgang has stamped himself as a top dog in the 3-year-old trotting division following a strong 1:52.1 victory in Saturday’s (June 16) C$266,000 Goodtimes Stakes at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Wolfgang won the Goodtimes in a clocking of 1:52.1.

The son of My MVP circled to the lead from second entering the backstretch and proceeded to say goodnight to his rivals, drawing away to win by four lengths. Driven by Yannick Gingras, Wolfgang trotted his final quarter in :27.3 for his second win in as many 2018 starts.

“I would say so,” said Takter when asked if the race went according to plan. “The horse is a very good horse and you can do anything you want with this horse, he’s very handy.”

Alarm Detector, last year’s top 2-year-old trotting colt in Canada, came first-up on the far turn and eventually finished third, missing the top two for the first time in nine career starts. Stormont Ventnor, who was 99-1, surprised by finishing second.

Wolfgang, who went three for 10 during his rookie season, is now a five-time winner with more than C$450,000 earned for Brixton Medical Inc., Goran Falk, Hatfield Stables and Fair Island Farm Inc.

The Takter trainee paid $4.30 to win.
