Kabel eyes another streak


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Jockey Todd Kabel's streak of seven consecutive victories over the E.P. Taylor turf course came to an end in Sunday's third race, when he guided Gangster to a second-place finish.

Kabel, Woodbine's leading rider, will try to begin a new win streak on the grass aboard Beyond the Horizon in Wednesday's feature, a $67,800 first-level allowance for 3-year-old fillies.

In her only grass start, Beyond the Horizon was beaten five lengths after a three-wide trip against males in an allowance Nov. 1. She got the winter off after capping her 2-year-old campaign by running second in a 1 1/16-mile allowance.

Beyond the Horizon ended up seventh in her lone outing this year, a seven-furlong allowance. She has worked five furlongs twice in the interim for trainer Dave Cotey, who is 2 for 7 at the meeting when using Kabel.

Faswiga could be the favorite in the one-mile event, which has also lured Myfavoritesoldier, Livermore Dream, Winter Tide, Spice Rack, and Moment of Peace.

Faswiga has made all eight of her starts on the grass. She won her maiden third time out for trainer Ian Howard, in a one-mile maiden special here, and was subsequently sent to trainer Barclay Tagg at Belmont, where she was fifth in the nine-furlong Miss Grillo Stakes on Oct. 26.

Tagg took Faswiga to Florida for the winter, where she was unplaced in a pair of $100,000 stakes at Calder before finishing a troubled fourth in a Feb. 6 allowance at Gulfstream. She returned here this spring to Howard and finished second in a May 22 allowance.

Myfavoritesolder should garner a lot of betting action off her front-running score over $40,000 maidens on the Gulfstream turf April 25. She is making her first start for trainer Dave Dwyer, who has been winning at a 33-percent clip with new acquisitions.

Livermore Dream is coming off a narrow victory at about a mile in a maiden special at Tampa, which was her first attempt on the grass. Robert Triola owns and trains Livermore Dream, a daughter of Mt. Livermore. Livermore Dream's dam, the Theatrical mare Avidora, was unbeaten in three turf starts.

Trainer Mark Casse, who scored with longshot Witness This on the turf last Sunday, will saddle Winter Tide. Winter Tide was seventh at Gulfstream in her lone grass race, but is exiting a decent effort on the dirt and could benefit if the race is moved to the main track.
