Executive Bonnie goes for third straight win


ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Executive Bonnie goes for her third win in a row in Wednesday’s featured third race, and she’s a potential single for those playing the pick six, which has a carryover of $3,195. The feature is a seven-furlong Ontario-sired allowance on turf.

Executive Bonnie, a 5-year-old trained by Darwin Banach, had been idle for more than a year when she finished up the track in a $12,500 maiden claimer last November. After getting the winter and spring off, she resurfaced in a five-furlong maiden dash for Ontario-sired stock June 24, finishing a surprising second.

Executive Bonnie subsequently won a 6 1/2-furlong maiden special, while earning a Beyer Speed Figure of just 52. Most recently Aug. 1, she took to the turf like a duck to water in an Ontario-sired allowance sprint, scoring by a head after rallying from the back of the pack. Her Beyer Figure for that effort was a respectable 72.

Executive Bonnie meets Ontario-sired nonwinners-of-three allowance opposition on Wednesday. Leading rider Eurico Da Silva stays aboard this daughter of Bold Executive, who is owned by Bill Sorokolit.

Lunar Linda hasn’t competed on the grass since her narrow loss Sept. 12 in the restricted La Prevoyante Stakes. She had a very productive 2009 campaign, which also included a runner-up placing in the Eternal Search Stales on Polytrack.

Lunar Linda is winless in five starts this year. Perhaps her best effort of the meet was a second in her season opener behind future stakes winner Moonlit Beauty. She also ran second in her last start behind a sharp Interregnum, who subsequently finished a bang-up second in another Ontario-sired allowance route.

Corey Fraser retains the mount on the Ian Black-trained Lunar Linda.

Lady Elena finally cleared the nonwinners-of-two Ontario-sired allowance condition in her ninth try July 18. She was a decent fourth behind next-out winner Fabric in her lone turf attempt going six furlongs in her June 17 season debut.

Luis Contreras will ride Lady Elena for trainer Brian Lynch, who sent out the 65-1 winner of last Sunday’s Breeders’ Stakes, Miami Deco.

Bold Vixen crushed a weak field of Ontario-sired maidens traveling seven furlongs on Polytrack July 28. A Bold Executive filly, she doesn’t possess much turf breeding on the dam’s side of her pedigree.

Fashion Conscious made an inside bid before fading to third behind Executive Bonnie in her last outing.
