Prohibitive favourite Economy Terror and driver Brian Sears roared down the stretch to post a convincing one and one-quarter length win over Handsoffmycookie in the $602,340 Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Filly Pace, Saturday at Woodbine Racetrack. It was the seventh win in 10 starts for the daughter of Western Terror-Mattatonic, who paced the mile in a track record-equalling 1:51. Pirouette Hanover finished third, with Shelliscape fourth.

Trained by Chris Oakes for Pennsylvania owners Chuck Pompey, Howard Taylor and Edwin Gold, Economy Terror pushed her career bankroll to over $734,000 with the victory. A full sister to 2009 Breeders Crown champion Yellow Diamond, Economy Terror has not finished worse than second in a sparkling juvenile campaign, the runner-up on three occasions, including a second place finish in the rich She's A Great Lady Stakes on September 3 at Mohawk Racetrack.

"She's got good speed and I figured we would be able to use it," said winning driver Brian Sears. "She's got a real good kick closing. She's a real nice horse I felt pretty confident from the spot I was in. She has seemed to be getting bigger and stronger, she's a good feeling mare and there's nothing like a sharp filly going behind the gate."

"She's been a great filly from day one," noted trainer Chris Oakes." I was lucky to get her I'm really thankful to my owners Chuck Pompey and Howard Taylor and Edwin Gold. She's been a real handful, but we have been really patient and taken our time. This shows that good things happen to the patient ones."
