Hot jockey and trainer team up

Email

CALGARY, Alberta - Garry Marks saddled three horses here at Stampede Park last Saturday and won with all three: Remarkable Weekend ($8.20) in the second race, Nattandyahoo ($12.60) in the fifth, and Awesome Devil ($6.40) in the sixth.

Dan Boudreau turned in a patient, well-judged ride aboard Nattandyahoo to win the fourth race for Marks. It was the second win of the day for Boudreau, who had turned a similarly patient ride on Tahquitz Pride a race earlier for leading trainer Greg Tracy. Boudreau just missed a three-bagger of his own when Laryonthelead closed from last to finish second by a neck in Saturday's final race.

Marks, a veteran on this circuit, and Boudreau, the new kid on the block, team up with Dublin's Woodwin in Wednesday's featured seventh race for older $17,500 claimers.

A Montana-bred 7-year-old, Dublin's Woodwin has run four times at the $22,000 level with limited success, and Marks drops him a notch in search of the win. Dublin's Woodwin drew the rail and has positional speed if Boudreau feels the need to use it.

Dublin's Woodwin's last win came in wire-to-wire fashion last June at Northlands Park at the six-furlong distance of Wednesday's race, and the gelding should be favored versus six rivals, including the entry of Chain Reprisal and Big Sky River.

Dublin's Woodwin's main rival for the early lead is Judge Ruckus, who follows him down the ladder from the $22,000 level.
