Woodbine: Artic Fern outruns blue blood

Email10-1 shot Arctic Fern dueled with Dark Cloud Dancer before edging away from that rival in deep stretch to capture the sixth, a six and a half-furlong maiden special, in a time of 1:15.53. It was an encouraging debut for Dark Cloud Dancer, who is by Storm Cat and out of champion/Queen's Plate winner Dancethruthedawn.
