Rahy's Attorney wins the Bunty Lawless by 3 1/4 lengths Saturday.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Rahy’s Attorney ($3.40) won the $125,000 Bunty Lawless Stakes for the third time Saturday at Woodbine, in front-running style.

Rahy’s Attorney was reunited with jockey Slade Callaghan, who piloted him to victory in the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile in 2008. Callaghan hadn’t ridden him since they finished seventh in the ’09 Woodbine Mile.

Rahy’s Attorney led after a slow opening quarter of 25 seconds in the one-mile turf event. Sand Cove attended the pace on the outside fromthe turn until the eighth pole, where Rahy’s Attorney began to draw off.

Rahy’s Attorney finished up very strong, scoring by 3 1/4 lengths, in a time of 1:36.36, over a course labeled good. Sand Cove, the 2008 Bunty Lawless winner, and last year’s runner-up, finished a clear second. Guipago, who was rank on the lead for the first eighth before dropping back, nosed out Mobthewarrior for third in the five-horse field of Ontario-sired runners.

“He ran really well today,” said Callaghan. “He ran like the champion that he is.”

The Ian Black-trained Rahy’s Attorney banked $75,000 for Ellie Boje Farm and partners.
