Super Duper Me tries to bounce back

EmailWINNIPEG, Manitoba - A wide-open field of seven Manitoba-bred 3-year-olds will go to post in Saturday's $45,000 J.W. Sifton Stakes, a 1 1/8-mile race here at Assiniboia Downs.

Super Duper Me won the restricted North Dakota Stallion Stakes three starts back, then followed that race with a win against restricted allowance company.

Both of those starts and Super Duper Me's most recent, a last-place finish in a weak first-level allowance, were at one mile.

Jimmijazz won that first-level allowance at long odds in his last start. Prior to that, the Blair Miller trainee defeated maiden claimers, also at one mile.

Miller also sends out Rock a Fella.

A maiden, Rock a Fella was 10 lengths behind Super Duper Me in the North Dakota Stallion but only a length back in the restricted allowance.

Most recently, Rock a Fella finished third as the odds-on choice against maiden claimers.

Command Thunder faced conditioned claimers and ran for trainer Aaron Sayler for the first time when he won his latest.

Owned by K 5 Stable, Command Thunder will likely be the controlling speed but he was beaten in his only previous attempt at a route.

Heart Smart finished well back of Super Duper Me in the restricted allowance. A gelding owned and trained by Clint Willson, Heart Smart won his maiden over restricted bottom-level maiden claimers two back.

Maidens Western Performer and Roman Dodger round out the field.

o Culpeper Moon heads a list of 17 fillies and mares nominated to next Saturday's $70,000 Matron Breeders' Cup at 1 1/8 miles.
