$30,000 Lost in the Fog
Howg and Diodoro, both from the province of Alberta, opened the sweep with Shane Doan ($10.40) with David Lopez up to win the Lost in the Fog by 1 ½ lengths with Bocephus second and 6-5 favorite Trigger Warning third in the field of eight 2-year-old colts and geldings.
Shane Doan, a son of Stay Thirsty, made every pole a winning won while covering the 6 ½ furlongs in 1:17:04 for his second consecutive win in seven career outings. Shane Doan’s winner’s share of $18,042 boosted his earnings to $42,032.

The Arizona Juvenile
The Canadian entry of Howg and Diodoro came right back with 6-5 favorite Gorgeous Ginny ($4.60) in the fillies division who proceeded to do a seven-length walk-in-the-park victory with Glenn Corbett along for “the joy or riding.”
Dontkissntell finished second, three lengths in front of Littsisterdon’tu who finished third in the field of nine juvenile misses.
Gorgeous Ginny, a daughter of Take Charge Indy, zipped the 6 ½ furlongs in 1:16.28 for her second win in four outings and first stakes win from two previous tries. Gorgeous Ginny’s earnings now stand at $100,112.
“Winning should be so easy,” said Corbett.
