Johnny Bear's Northern Dancer win a family affair


ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Trainer Ashlee Brnjas said she had seen the replay of Saturday’s Grade 1 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes too many times to count by the time training ended here Sunday morning. Brnjas and her father, John Burness of Colebrook Farms, recorded their first Grade 1 win when Johnny Bear won the Northern Dancer, nailing the heavily favored European shipper Hawkbill on the wire.
