Beausox faces familiar rivals


WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Beausox will be going for her third win in as many local starts when she faces four other 3-year-old fillies in Sunday's $30,000 Assiniboia Oaks at 1 1/16 miles.

Trained by Karline Hunter, Beausox won the Jacky Hardy Stakes in her first start here Aug. 5 and then beat many of the same horses in an allowance race Aug. 27.

Rohan Singh will ride Beausox, who breaks from post 3.

In her local debut Aug. 27, Miss Noire set the pace against Beausox and will likely do the same on Sunday. Trained by Tom Dodds, Miss Noire provided little resistance when challenged by Beausox on the final turn. She will start from post 5 under Jerry Pruitt.

Top Stage Dancer, trained by Fern Zdunick, will make her first start away from Marquis Downs. A four-time winner this year, including victories in the Parkland Heritage and James Leakos Sophomore, Top Stage Dancer will begin from post 4 with Clint Magera in the irons.

What Four, winless this year, finished a well-beaten third in the allowance race Aug. 27 and was fourth in the Jack Hardy. Trained by Chad Torevell, What Four has drawn the rail with Tim Gardiner.

Bitdaboss finished second to Beausox in the Jack Hardy, and followed that effort with a fourth-place finish in the

Aug. 27 allowance. Trained by Emile Corbel, Bitdaboss will break from post 2 under Juan Crawford.

* Kalfaari, a winner of three stakes races here this year, heads a list of 10 nominated to the $30,000 R. J. Speers at 1 1/16 miles here Sept. 14.
