MILTON, August 28, 2021 – The Francis Dumouchel trained Twin B Sunkissed showed plenty of fight to win Saturday’s $169,550 Simcoe Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Driver Yannick Gingras moved Twin B Sunkissed from third to first in the second-quarter and never surrendered the lead to win by three-quarters of a length over Voelz Delight in a career-best 1:51.1. Good Night Moon was third, while Paulas Bet Hanover was fourth.
“Voelz (Delight) is a really nice filly, but it was never in doubt,” said Gingras. “I popped the plugs half way down the stretch, but I was really confident.
“(Francis Dumouchel) told me she had problems early in the season tying up and allergies, but he thought he had it figured out now and that Sylvain (Filion) really hadn’t asked her for too miuch her last two starts and she won in hand.”
Twin B Sunkissed has now won three races in a row to improve her 2021 record to three wins and $113,956 earned. The daughter of Sunshine Beach sports career numbers of four wins and $240,068 earned for owners Dumouchel, Ecurie CSL and 9174 7998 Quebec Inc.
A $2 win ticket on Twin B Sunkissed returned $5.30.
