Stole Another could move up

EmailETOBICOKE, Ontario - Four of the seven runners in Thursday's second race at Woodbine are stakes winners, but stakes-placed Stole Another may be the one to fear most in the six-furlong dash for $50,000 claimers.

After recording two straight victories in optional claimers at Hastings in June, Stole Another wound up second in the B.C. Cup Sprint Handicap in August. Trainer Terry Jordan subsequently shipped him to his Woodbine barn, and sent him out to finish second for $50,000, before winning a $40,000 claimer with him Sept. 26.

Most recently, Stole Another captured another $50,000 event while being awarded a career-high 88 Beyer Figure. He was claimed that day by trainer Scott Fairlie, who has moved up numerous claimed runners in the past.

In a field without an abundance of speed, Stole Another should be an effective front-running presence Thursday under Patrick Husbands.

Are You Serious, a 5-year-old trained by Bob Tiller, won the Kennedy Road Stakes at 3 and the Bold Venture Stakes at 4. He is winless in seven starts this year and is well past the peak form he displayed in the spring, when he ran second in the Grade 2 Vigil Stakes and third in the Jacques Cartier Stakes.

Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk, a durable 6-year-old, captured the 2004 Woodstock Stakes when he was trained by Tiller. Trainer Sid Attard claimed him for $50,000 in July 2005, and has earned more than $300,000 with him since then.

Emma Wilson retains the mount.

The Tiller-trained Twisted Wit won four stakes during his formative years, most notably the Queenston and the Achievement. The 6-year-old hasn't found the mark since his victory in an $80,000 optional claimer last November, but he hasn't slipped much in the Beyer department, and has never run for this low of a price.

Tiller and Twisted Wit's new rider, Emile Ramsammy, teamed up to win with Jumptoconclusions last Friday.

Dashing Admiral took the 2004 Bold Ruckus Stakes and placed in three other restricted stakes during his 3-year-old campaign.

Dashing Admiral has won 5 of 8 outings this year. Three of those wins came after he was claimed by trainer Chantal Paquette for $40,000 in May. He is coming off a hard-fought score over $32,000 opposition.

Rounding out the field are Bold Thing, third in the New Providence last May, and Put Upon, who was in solid form prior to a failed turf experime
