Jenna's Wabbit, with Eurico Da Silva up, wins the Achievement Stakes by 3 1/2 lengths.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Jenna’s Wabbit outran favored Incredicat for the lead and kept on going to take the $150,000 Achievement Stakes by 3 1/2 lengths at Woodbine on Monday.

With Eurico Da Silva aboard, Jenna’s Wabbit, the 124-pound highweight, covered six furlongs in 1:11.16 after setting fairly quick fractions. Incredicat held off Bear and Rod for second in the six-horse field of Ontario-bred 3-year-olds.

Jenna’s Wabbit ($4.70) collected $90,000 in his fourth stakes victory for trainer Ralph Biamonte.

“He worried me a little bit on the turn,” Da Silva said. “He was running very aggressively, and I didn’t want to fight him. He’s so strong. He ran a great race.”

* Stunning Stag ($7.80), one of four 5-2 shots in the six-horse field, closed inside to capture Monday’s supporting feature, the $100,000 Ontario Jockey Club Stakes.

With Gerry Olguin riding for trainer Sid Attard, Stunning Stag ran seven furlongs over firm turf in 1:20.96, while scoring by a half-length over Artic Fern. Arrow’s Conquest got third over a closing Pool Play, who was fourth in his first appearance since winning the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Stakes in June 2011 at Churchill Downs.

“He felt great today,” Olguin said. “He takes you wherever you want to go. I think he’ll run on anything.”
