Stretching out to 1 1/16 miles on the main track, Our Flash Drive stalked the front-running California Lily early on before moving up to press the pace after opening fractions of :24.78 and :49.03.

With Husbands signalling it was go-time past the 1:12.87 3/4 mark, Our Flash Drive overtook the pacesetter andtook off down the lane to win by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:44.69.   

Woodbine Oaks eligible Munnyfor Ro, who broke outward, rallied home from the backfield to take the runner-up honours under Justin Stein. It was another 2 1/4 lengths back to third-place finisher Sweet Souper Sweet, another Live Oak homebred trained by Michael Trombetta, who finished 3 lengths ahead of California Lily.

Gote Go followed in fifth and the Casse-trained Danger was eased up and completed the order of finish. 

Sent postward as the odds-on favourite, Our Flash Drive returned $4.70 to win. 

Now 2 for 4 lifetime, she boasts back-to-back wins at Woodbine. 

Casse, who has won the Selene a total of 7 times, has teamed with Husbands to take 4 editions of the race. They combined for past wins with Dark Ending (2001), Dixie Strike (2012), and Miss Mo Mentum (2018).
