Shout to the North wins the $136,875 Glorious Song Stakes at Woodbine on Sunday.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Shout to the North ($41.70) collared Canadian Gem in deep stretch to capture Sunday's $136,875 Glorious Song Stakes, a seven-furlong event for 2-year-old fillies at Woodbine.

Emile Ramsammy rode Shout to the North, who rallied wide from nearly four lengths back to score by a neck, in a final time of 1:25.65 seconds. Canadian Gem was three lengths clear of the third-place finisher, Roving Angel, while favored Quite a Ruckus trailed the seven-horse field, after dueling through quick fractions.

Trainer Mark Casse said he was pleasantly surprised by Shout to the North's performance.

"She showed some ability throughout the year, but she'd been sick, and she's not the hardiest of fillies," Casse said. "Just recently, she started training good, so that's why we tried this race."

Shout to the North banked $82,125 in her first stakes triumph for owner Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC.
