ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Chantal Sutherland hopes to make it onto the hit television show "Dancing With the Stars" some day, but for now, she'll have to settle for riding Dancing Raven, whom she guided to victory in Saturday's $126,200 La Prevoyante Stakes at Woodbine.

Dancing Raven tracked pacemaker Attitude Included in the one-mile turf route, while favored Jacally raced in third in the eight-horse field of Ontario-sired 3-year-old fillies. Dancing Raven hit the front around the three-sixteenths pole, and then held off Jacally and Attitude Included in the final sixteenth to prevail by 1/4 lengths in 1:36.07. Attitude Included edged out Jacally by a neck for second.

"Her warm-up was awesome, and she broke sharp," said Sutherland. "I thought Jacally was going to be in front of us, but I went with the flow. At the top of the stretch, it was time to get going, and when I asked her to roll, and she picked it up really well. She was really strong today."

As for Dancing With the Stars, Sutherland said, "I'm going to try again for the spring, and we'll see what happens."

Dancing Raven collected $75,000 in her first stakes score for Windhaven and trainer Mike Doyle.
