p>Extending his winning streak to six-in-a-row was like shooting fish in a barrel for trotter Holy Halibut at Woodbine Racetrack on Thursday evening.

The photogenic gelding, who recently made his way north of the border after campaigning at Pompano Park, didn’t mind the sloppy footing one iota at noted by his three-length triumph in 1:59.

Sylvain Filion was at the lines behind Holy Halibut, and after sitting fourth to the quarter pole he brushed the four-year-old son of Holy Guacamolie-CR Gone Fishin to the engine. He hit the half in :59 and the three-quarter pole in 1:29.1 before sprinting home in :29.4. That was good enough to earn him the decisive score over Weslynn Legacy and Cool Guy.

James Belanger of Azilda, ON owns and trains the seven-time winner, who went 6-for-14 last season. The lightly-raced square gaiter has managed to haul in more than $24,000 to date.
