Gary Boulanger leads Lorena to victory in the Fury Stakes in Woodbine.

Undefeated three year old mare Lorena led all the way to win the $ 125,000 Fury Stakes and keep her perfect record intact for trainer and co-owner Stu Simon on Saturday at Woodbine.

Lorena led the field of Canadian-bred fillies through a quarter in: 23.57 and a half mile in: 46.82, flipping her late challengers to win the seven-line sprint in 1: 23.94.

During the corner, Lorena dismissed Owens Tour Guide, who also entered the Fury with a two-for-two record, then held the late-on-track Astrological Rally in check to defeat that enemy by three-quarters of a length. Less than a length behind, Curlin’s Catch completed a 2-3 finish for trainer Mark Casse.

Il Malocchio finished fourth, four lengths behind, Bodacious Miss, Owens Tour Guide and El Bayern rounded off the field.

“I thought she did well and she seemed to take the lead pretty easily,” said Simon, who owns the filly Souper Speedy-Negotiable with Brent & Russell McLellan and former jockey Gerry Olguin. “She set reasonable fractions and looked comfortable so I wasn’t worried about where she was.”

Simon said he is still debating whether the Ontario-bred filly will go to Budweiser’s $ 500,000 Woodbine Oaks scheduled for Sunday, August 1st in Woodbine.

“I hate putting too much on the plate of a young horse so we’ll examine it carefully,” he said.

“She’s an awfully good filly,” he added. “She is at the top of everyone. I think we were lucky enough to have some good young horses and it worked out well. “

Lorena paid $ 3.90 to win as a 4-5 favorite.

It was a great day for Boulanger, who had a Grand Slam in the 11-race program.

“It’s everything we work for and what we want,” said the veteran moving man who got Lorena on his feet on his comeback after an injury this season. “Everyone wants to be good, especially after injuries, but sometimes it’s harder to come back into that light. I’ve been fortunate to work with some great people who gave me the opportunity, like Stu and everyone else, and it’s great fun just coming back. “
