Sorokolit entry double trouble

Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - The Bill Sorokolit-owned entry of Anna's Ballerina and Kain's Charm are both possibilities in Friday's Woodbine feature, a competitive 6 1/2-furlong allowance for fillies and mares.

It took Anna's Ballerina 11 starts to win her maiden, which is not all that surprising, since she is out of the late-blooming turf stakes winner, Ballerina Queen. She graduated going 6 1/2 furlongs on the Polytrack Oct. 21, earning a respectable 83 Beyer Speed Figure.

Previously, Anna's Ballerina ran second in a one-mile maiden race on the grass, which came after a decent try by her in her first start on the Polytrack.

Kain's Charm, the lone also-eligible in the 15-horse field, went to the sidelines after earning her diploma with a 78 Beyer in early May. When back in action on Oct. 7, she finished fourth in a grass allowance, a race she probably needed.

Todd Kabel was named on both parts of the entry by trainer Darwin Banach. The Kabel-Banach jockey-trainer combination has 8 wins in 29 starts at the meeting, including two graded-stakes wins with Sky Conqueror.

Other contenders in Friday's feature are Seal of Moulin, A Touch of Glory, One Across, and Friendly Selection.

Since moving to trainer Scott Fairlie's barn earlier this fall, Seal of Moulin has won two allowances for Ontario-sired runners. She took no prisoners on the front end in both, and will likely be joined on the lead here by Voodoo Vixen, if she employs an aggressive style.

A Touch of Glory earned black type on the grass when second to Strike Softly in the July 9 Ontario Damsel Stakes. She surprisingly is winless since then, but did run fourth in the Sept. 2 Ontario Colleen Stakes.

A Touch of Glory never challenged in her debut on the all-weather track Sept. 23, but has worked a bullet five furlongs since ending up second after a wide trip in an Oct. 7 turf allowance. Perhaps the addition of blinkers will have her more focused for this race.

One Across won her maiden two starts ago on the grass, and was recently third in A Touch of Glory's last outing. She has worked twice on the Polytrack, including a quick half-mile breeze in 48 seconds on Oct. 20.
