Corbel has only one - but it's the right one


WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Trainers Chad Torevell, Ardell Sayler, and Tom Kinsella will each send out two entrants in Sunday's restricted $30,000 North Dakota Stallion Stakes for 2-year-olds at six furlongs. But it looks like trainer Emile Corbel has the one to beat in the field of eight in Your Excellence.

Your Excellence has won both his starts, defeating maiden special weight company on July 2 and then winning the restricted Frank Arnason Sire Stakes at Sunday's distance.

Vince Guerra, who has been aboard Your Excellence both times, will ride again from post 3.

The Torevell-trained filly Danger Pay, who finished second behind Your Excellence when debuting in the Frank Arnason, will make her second start in Sunday. Paul Leacock will ride Danger Pay as Beth Butler, who was on board last time, has opted for Northrnimprovement, Torevell's other entrant.

Northrnimprovement finished fourth and third in two starts here before winning the restricted Thoroughbred Futurity at Fargo on Aug. 8 in his most recent start.

The Sayler-trained maiden Doddles carries a field-best last-race Beyer Speed Figure of 55 into the race. Doddles will break from post 8 under Travis Hightower.

Sayler will also send out maiden Sargent Storm, who will race on Lasix for the first time. He starts from post 7 with Jason Leacock aboard.

The Kinsella-trained My Pink Panther has made four starts at four different tracks. His most recent was a runner-up showing against maiden special weight company at Columbus. My Pink Panther begins from post 6 with Keveh Nicholls to ride.

Kinsella also sends out Jimbo's King, who was well beaten in two starts against maidens at Canterbury Park. Larren Delorme will ride Jimbo's King as they start from post 2.

The field rounds out with Princess Potoula, who will break from the rail under Ken Hendricks.
