Rahy's Attorney outdoes rival in Bunty Lawless

Email

Rahy's Attorney ($4) put away a persistent Sand Cove in the stretch en route to capturing the $125,400 Bunty Lawless Stakes at Woodbine Saturday.

Rahy's Attorney vied with Sand Cove and My Imperial Dancer along the rail on the turn through slow fractions in the one-mile turf route. Rahy's Attorney and Sand Cove dueled until the sixteenth pole, where Rahy's Attorney began to draw away. He registered a three-length victory in a time of 1:37.81 over the soft going.

Society's Chairman rallied belatedly to finish third in the six-horse field of Ontario-sired runners. Cobotown Ron was scratched.

It was the second time that jockey Robert Landry teamed up with Rahy's Attorney to win the Bunty Lawless. They also took the 2007 running for trainer Ian Black.

"He's a tremendous horse," said Landry. "He relaxed nicely, and we got easy fractions. He kicked on, and did it pretty effortlessly."

Rahy's Attorney, last year's champion grass runner in Canada, banked $75,000 for owners Ellie Boje Farm and partners.
