Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Dancingall Theway ($12) won his first stakes with determination Wednesday night at Woodbine in the $125,800 New Providence.

It was the third win on the card for jockey Chantal Sutherland, who had Dancingall Theway in a three-wide pace-pressing position on the turn in the six-furlong sprint. They hit the front early in the stretch, and then held 17-1 outsider Gypsy Ring at bay before edging away to prevail by three-quarters of a length in 1:09.32.

Grazettes Landing, the 4-5 favorite in the seven-horse field of Ontario-sired runners, finished third after a very wide journey. Daniel Be Good faded to fifth after setting honest fractions. Not Bourbon was scratched.

Dancingall Theway banked $75,000 for owner K.K. Sangara and trainer Lorne Richards, who ran him for as little as $32,000 claiming last November.
