Torevell horses take two stakes

Four stakes were contested here on Monday's holiday program, and trainer Chad Torevell swept both divisions of the CTHS Sales Stakes.

In the colts and geldings division, Torevell saddled Goin N Style ($6.90). Ridden by Brian Harding, Goin N Style completed the six furlongs in 1:15.80.

In the fillies division, Torevell won with What Four ($3.60). Ridden by Tim Gardiner, What Four completed the six furlongs in 1:15.40.

Gus Again ($3.10) proved he is the best older Manitoba-bred, winning the Agassiz by six lengths. Trained by Harry Kube and ridden by Anderson Ward, Gus Again finished the mile in 1:41 flat.

Con's Night Flight ($11.20) rallied from last to take the Distaff. For trainer Brian Slater and jockey Robert May, the win was their first in a stakes race at Assiniboia Downs.

First time starter Big R ($17.20) upset odds-on favorite Halo Alo in last Sunday's North Dakota Futurity.

* Jockeys Danny Vergara and Ruben Solis have left due to lack of business. Solis will most likely return to Vancouver, while Vergara has relocated to the California fair circuit.

* Trainer Brian "Hutch" Hutcheon died last Sunday at age 58. Hutcheon, who was the trainer of multiple stakes winner Slinkylady, also worked with the grounds crew here and as an agent for jockey Tom Adkins.
