Under a confident ride by jockey Helen Vanek, Not Too Much raced to her second win in as many starts Tuesday afternoon in the $65,313(US) Ontario Sires Stakes Futurity at Ajax Downs.

The Gary and Marlene McNichol's homebred filly completed the 330 yard course in :17.280 seconds to pickup the winner's purse worth $26,125(US) and boost her career total to nearly $30,000. David Ward conditions the daughter of Fire Finder out of the Southern Cartel mare Cotton Country.

The sorrel miss came into the finals as the third fastest qualifier after breaking her maiden with an impressive one-length victory in the July 1 trials.

Fastest qualifier Now Is Forever, under jockey John McInerney, finished second as the post-time favorite but was disqualified for interference and placed seventh by the track stewards.

Stephanie Keeble's Zoomin On Ice was moved to second and earned $13,063(US) for the effort. Greg Watson trains the Iced N Oak gelding out of Azooma, by Shazoom. In the July 1 trials the bay gelding was a 1-¾ length winner and posted the second fastest qualifying time. Cory Spataro was aboard the John Kelly-bred earner of $18,966 after three starts.

Executive Dash took home $6,531(US) for third. The Down Home Dash gelding races for owner/trainer Renee Wilson. Mike Holmes rode the Herb Goldie Ontario-bred from the Bold Executive (TB) mare A Patch Of Bold (TB).
