In an exciting 27-1 upset, Spun Glass came from off the pace to win the $150,000 Ontario Fashion Stakes (G3) for fillies and mares Saturday at Woodbine.

Spun Glass, trained by Michael Trombetta for owner-breeder Larry Johnson, achieved her seventh win and first graded stakes win. She was returning to Woodbine for the first time since winning an allowance race there in October 2020.

Spun Glass is a a 6-year-old Maryland-bred mare by Hard Spun, Darley's Kentucky-based stallion who also sired Millie Girl, winner of the Ontario Matron (G3) one race earlier on the card for a back-to-back graded stakes double.

After an even break, Hard Edge lead the field with Loyalty in second, and Hazelbrook in third, the quarter was reached in :22.54. Spun Glass, with Luis Contreras aboard, was second last in the field of nine.

Spun Glass took the turn from the inside, making her way into fifth. The time at the half was :44.24. Loyalty was first, followed closely by Hazelbrook in second, Ready To Venture (GB) in third and Hard Edge in fourth.

In the stretch, Spun Glass came through the center of the field to win. Awesome Treat was second, Loyalty third, and Hazelbrook fourth.

“She broke really good so I just let he go at whatever speed she was comfortable,” said Contreras, who was aboard the mare for first time. “Once I was in the post parade, I got a good feeling of her and just went from there.”

Vamtarsi and Time for an Angel were stewards scratches.

Spun Glass, who was produced by the Songandaprayer mare Allwewantforxmas, paid $57.20 to win.
