Leonnatus Anteas beats older in Durham Cup

EmailLeonnatus Anteas ($7.80) beat an accomplished group of older opponents and shattered the 1 1/8-mile Polytrack record in Saturday's $150,800 Durham Cup Stakes at Woodbine.

Leonnatus Anteas raced five lengths off the lead on the backstretch, and made a four-wide bid on the far turn under Jono Jones. He hit the front at the top of the stretch, and then held off Eccentric and favored Arch Hall to prevail by 1 1/4 lengths, in a time of 1:49.55. The previous record was 1:50.49.

Leonnatus Anteas, last year's Canadian champion 2-year-old, earned $90,000 for Knob Hill Stable and the Estate of Steve Stavro. Kevin Attard trains the winner.

Not Bourbon ($6.80) broke the six-furlong Polytrack record when he won Saturday's other stakes at Woodbine, the $126,600 Bull Page for Ontario-sired 2-year-olds.

Not Bourbon came wide from fourth and overtook favored Stuck in Traffic in the final furlong to win by a length in 1:08.84, which was .19 of a second lower than the previous record. Lady's First Cat finished third in the eight-horse field.

Jones got a leg up from trainer Roger Attfield on Not Bourbon, who banked $75,000 in his first stakes score. He is owned by Charles Fipke.

"This horse has improved with every start," said Jones. "He relaxes so good now. I even think he'll stretch out."
