Siyouma Super in E. P. Taylor

Siyouma (IRE)(3) with Jockey Gerald Mosse aboard wins the E.P. Taylor Stakes (Grade 1) at Pattison Canadian International in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 2012.
Siyouma made the lead at the top of the lane and held on strong to win the $1-million Grade 1 E.P Taylor Stakes, a Breeders' Cup Win & You're In event, at Woodbine.

The four-year-old daughter of Medicean-Sichilla, trained by Francois Doumen and ridden by Gerald Mosse, came into the E.P Taylor off a win in the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket on September 29, and was full value for her second top-level score in her first trip across the pond.

Siyouma rated fifth off the early pace of Kapitale in the 1 1/4-mile event, through splits of :25.83, :50.53 and 1:39.20, with Pagera just inside of her in fourth-position. Mosse urged Siyouma to the lead at the top of the lane with Pagera, under Arc de Triomphe-winning jockey Olivier Peslier, and Dream Peace, with Ramon Dominguez in the irons, hot on her heels. 

However, Siyouma, despite having to hold on the entire length of the expansive Woodbine stretch would not be caught notching a 1 3/4-length score in 2:03.04.  Pagera was up for second, a neck in front of Dream Peace.

Mosse was impressed with his filly's resilience after her winning effort at Newmarket just two weeks ago.

“To be honest, I was not worried about the track, the ground and the filly," said Mosse. "I was just a bit worried two weeks ago…she was in the UK and we won a Group 1 already. It was a bit short in timing, but I told the trainer that if he chose to come, it means we are coming for something solid.”

Doumen was full of praise for the Irish-bred Siyouma.

"She’s so good and she’s so calm," said Doumen. "She has got such a wonderful temperament that it allows her to travel beautifully well and takes all the effort away.”

Peslier, who took the Arc with Solemia just one week ago, had no complaints about his trip aboard Pagera.

"We travelled very well and had plenty of chance to gain the lead and did very well to be second," he said. "I think it's (the turf) more heavy, which is not for her, but she ran very well."

Siyouma improved her record to four wins and three thirds from ten lifetime starts while taking the lion's share ($600,00) of the $1-million purse.

She paid $7.70, $4.80 and $3.30, combining with Pagera ($11.50, $6.90) for a $71.70 (3-2) exactor.  A 3-2-5 (Dream Peace, $3.10 to show) triactor was worth $344.10 while a $1 superfecta [3-2-5-12 (Kissable)] came back $1,423.10.
