Rescheduled stakes draws 9


SASKATOON, Saskatchewan - Nine 3-year-old fillies were entered for Saturday's $6,000 Captain Stanley Harrison Handicap at Marquis Downs, which was rescheduled when the Canada Day card was canceled because of a large hole near the finish line caused by heavy recent rainfall. The speedy Similkameen Brew, who drew the 7-hole when the race was first drawn, got the best of the re-draw, moving to the rail.

The Captain Stanley is run over six furlongs, and there are three winners and six maidens set to run.

The highweight, Sheen Sky, drew post 7. Sheen Sky won her lone start at 2, the Woodland Heritage, and earned top juvenile filly honors in the province.

Sheen Sky tried winners this spring at Stampede Park with no success and has since returned to the friendlier confines of Marquis Downs, where she has two place finishes versus older nonwinners-of-two. Leading jockey Serge Rocheleau retains the mount.

Similkameen Brew arrives from Vancouver sporting one victory, which came on June 4 over $5,000 maiden claimers. Similkameen Brew has run six times this year and should be dead fit and a danger to wire the field with her quick turn of foot.

Arctic Taliyah ran second in the Woodland Heritage and won her maiden here two starts ago over a muddy surface going a half-mile. She then disappointed as the 3-5 favorite when trying winners for the first time on June 18.

Of the maidens, Chipaway may have the best chance to register the upset, having been competitive last summer against $10,000 maiden claimers at Northlands. Her lone start here this year was a lackluster sixth-place finish here.
