Mysteryachievement going on turf

Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Mysteryachievement, fresh off a subpar performance on the main track, will experiment on the grass in Friday's Woodbine feature, a seven-furlong allowance for 3-year-old fillies.

Leading trainer Bob Tiller has been winning races in bunches this year, but has yet to find the mark at the meet with Mysteryachievement, who won a maiden special weight dash in her lone 2-year-old outing last Nov. 11.

Mysteryachievement resurfaced in a five-furlong allowance on opening day, when she was third behind a sharp Appealing Satin and Snowy Wager. Three weeks later, on April 22, she was second to Moonlight Affair in the seven-furlong Lady Angela Stakes after pressing the pace along the rail over a track that favored outside closers.

Mysteryachievement got nailed for second at the wire by Chamul when she was a distant third behind a streaking Treasureinmyhand in the seven-furlong Fury Stakes on May 6. Off that respectable effort, she was made the favorite in a 5 1/2-furlong allowance most recently, but could only manage a fourth-place finish under regular rider David Clark.

Mysteryachievement, a daughter of hot turf sire Regal Classic, is the first foal from stakes-placed Domascarama, who never competed on the grass. Two of Domascarama's half-siblings tried the grass, but neither of them hit the board in one start apiece over that surface.

Mysteryachievement is owned by Frank DiGiulio Jr., who also campaigns the Tiller-trained Win City, a serious contender in Sunday's $1 million Queen's Plate.

Completing the field for Friday's seventh race are Foxy Red, Marjorie Daw, Mines in Gear, Rare Vision, Crown's Shadow, Foxy Connection, Magical Bird, Love and Marry, and Snowy Wager.

Stakes-placed Foxy Red is also trying the grass for the first time, but doesn't have any significant breeding for that surface.

Trained by Tino Attard, Foxy Red will be coupled as part of a Stronach Stable entry with Love and Marry, who was a lapped-on second the last time she saw action in a Keeneland allowance on April 19.

Malcolm Pierce trains Love and Marry, who won her maiden following a layoff going about 1 1/16 miles on the front end at Gulfstream in February.

Marjorie Daw rallied wide after saving ground on the turn to capture a six-furlong maiden special on the grass June 10. She had failed to hit the top three in four trips over the main track before that event, and has obviously found her calling on the turf.

Laurie Silvera owns and trains Marjorie Daw, a daughter of 1989 Canadian turf champion Charlie Barley.
