Remarkable Vintage comes back in just eight days Sunday to win the Canadian Juvenile at Century Downs.

Remarkable Vintage appears to be a horse with a bright future following an impressive win in his second start in the $60,000 Canadian Juvenile at Century Downs on Sunday. He paid $8.60 for his 2 1/4-length win over Regal Max in the seven-furlong dash for 2-year-olds.

In his debut with Larry Munoz aboard, Remarkable Vintage set quick fractions on his way to a 12 1/4-length romp in a maiden special weight race just eight days ago.

Breaking from the outside post in the seven-horse Juvenile, he dueled with Regal Max through a first quarter in 22.17 seconds. He opened up a 1 1/2-length lead at the half-mile mark, held the same advantage over Regal Max heading into the stretch, and was never threatened while increasing his margin under strong urging from Munoz. Shimshine stalked the pace, but after looking like a threat at the quarter-pole, he flattened out to finish third.

The 8-5 favorite, Weekend Wizard, stumbled at the start, and after moving into contention going down the backstretch, he faded to finish sixth.

The final time was 1:24.18.

Remarkable Vintage, a homebred son of Schramsberg, is owned by Bar None Ranches and trained by Ron Grieves.
