My Conquestadory Beats Gents in Summer Stakes


My Conquestadory, a filly, impressed in her debut earning a Breeders' Cup berth with a runaway score in Saturday’s Grade 2, $212,800 Summer Stakes at Woodbine.

 
As a ‘Win and You’re In’ event, the winner of the one-mile turf event automatically earns a position in the starting gate for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita on November 1. All entry fees and travel costs will be waived.
 
Trained by Mark Casse for Ernie Semersky and Dory Newell's Conquest Stables LLC, the dark bay daughter of Artie Schiller took command at the three-sixteenths pole under rider Eurico Rosa da Silva and opened up on the nine-horse field to win by 3 1/4-lengths. Go Bro, a 25-1 long shot, stayed on strong for place ahead of Matador.
 
My Conquestadory, who scratched out of the filly Grade 2 Natalma Stakes held earlier on the card to take on the boys, stopped the clock in 1:34.81, which was more than a second faster than the filly stake.
 
Da Silva never doubted the talents of the impressive dark bay.
 
"I didn't think about losing the race. It never came to my mind that she could be beat," said da Silva. "I had great confidence in her and the whole (Casse) team said how nice she is. She's a great filly."
 
My Conquestadory, bred in Kentucky by Paul Tackett, banked $120,000 in victory.
 
She returned $12.90, $8 and $6.20, pairing with Go Bro ($21, $10.70) for a $321.80 (3-4) exactor.  A 3-4-7 (Matador, $3.90 to show) triactor was worth $1,499.30. Dig Alittle Deeper completed a $1 Superfecta (3-4-7-5) worth 7,908.80. Spanish Flower was scratched.

I rarely read horse's names any longer
two races were almost the same and did not differentiate them.....Babies get lucky
Odd race to be sure. Rajev Maraj shipped in for a single mount, the favorite (8/5) Ready to Act. As they were coimng down the lane, and she was pulling ahead ALL ON HER OWN WITHOUT A BIT OF COAXING other than a light scrubbing on her neck, he cocked his whip for a big right handed move. She shied away as it hit be a taser, came to an almost full stop, butt hit the ground and her front left clipped him in the back. He was then very unceremoniously stopmed on again before rolling into a ball under the inner rail. We watched the replay several times and the stewards told me to hold any photo since there might have been a DQ, but it was all horse at fault...Babies are nutty enough on the main course and are far less predictable on the lawn early on.
