Creaky Cricket Hops Across the Border

Ballybrit Stable's Creaky Cricket, who debuted with an excellent performance  in a June 6 Arlington International Racecourse juvenile maiden, will hop his way across the Canadian border and hope to chirp his way into the Woodbine winner's circle in Saturday's $125,000 Victoria Stakes.  

After winning by a visibly impressive 11½ lengths first out going 4½ furlongs in a spritely :52.50, the son of stakes-winning sprinter Yesbyjimminy will hope to win over an additional half-furlong on Saturday.

The Mike Dini-trained dark bay's main opposition could come from morning line favorite Conquest Tsunami.  A son of Stormy Atlantic trained by Mark Casse, Conquest Tsunami enters off a runaway maiden win in April at Keeneland, in which he earned a 93 Equibase Speed Figure - three points higher than Creaky Cricket's maiden victory.  

Despite the layoff, the Conquest Stable-owned colt is listed at 6-5 for his meet-leading conditioner.
