Stole One invades once again

Email

EDMONTON, Alberta - All four stakes for older fillies and mares offered in Alberta this year have been won by visitors from Hastings, and Stole One will be looking to continue that trend in Saturday's $50,000 John Patrick Memorial. Among her seven opponents in the one-mile race are five Northlands Park-based mares.

Stole One will be seeking her third Alberta victory of the season after capturing the Marc Jenkins Memorial at Calgary and the Wild Rose here. The now-retired Chris Loseth rode her in the Jenkins, and she retains the services of Desmond Bryan, who rode her in the Wild Rose

Gold Accent, trained by Dave Forster, won the Duchess of York at Stampede Park. Gold Accent will run as an entry with Hastings stablemate Overact, who won

last year's $100,000 Sonoma, Alberta's richest race for 3-year-old fillies. Overact will be ridden by Quincy Welch and Gold Accent by Rickey Walcott.

Alberta's best threat to put an end to the domination is A Shaky Start, trained by co-owner Al Strumecki. A Shaky Star was disqualified and placed third after finishing second to Summer Symphony in the Pearson.

A Shaky Start launched her campaign with a victory in the Sales Stake for 4-year-old fillies at Stampede Park. She was also runner-up to Gold Accent in the Duchess of York. Regular rider Leanne Painter will be aboard.

Kellys Guest has won a pair of allowances.
