It was over in a blink

The first recognized 2-furlong race in Woodbine history occured on Saturday and was won by Gil Rowntree's homebred 2-year-old grey filly SILVER TWINE (Stormy Atlantic). Heavily bet to 5 to 2, down from her 8 to 1 morning line, Silver Twine won by three-quarters of a length under Corey Fraser. Mike Wright's True Reality (War Deputy) finished a game second.
"None of them knew they were doing out there," said Fraser, who was talking about the eight-horse field of fillies and not his fellow riders. "I could tell they were all looking at each other."
All but one of the fillies (That's So Romantic was squeezed at the start and trailed) finished within a couple of lengths at the finish of the dash which was clocked in :22 3/5.
More 2-year-olds will be in action on Easter Sunday in the colt split of the 2-furlong maiden allowance race.
