Woodbine: Quiet Resolve gets up


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Quiet Resolve, Canada's reigning Horse of the Year, wore down a stubborn Kimberlite Pipe in late stretch to capture the Grade 2, $341,400 King Edward Breeders' Cup Handicap at Woodbine.

Kimberlite Pipe, the 1999 Louisiana Derby winner, set slow splits of 24.43 and 47.82 seconds over firm ground in the 1 1/8-mile test. Quiet Resolve stalked the pace under Todd Kabel, who moved him off the rail heading into the turn.

Kimberlite Pipe got the three-quarter split in 1:11.34 and looked like he could go all the way, but Quiet Resolve ran him down nearing the sixteenth pole en route to a 1 1/2-length score in a time 1:47.12.

Red Sea was disqualified from third and moved to fifth for interfering with Cracker's Folly heading into the turn. Spindrift, who finished a non-threatening fourth, was placed third. "He really kicked in today," said winning trainer Mark Frostad, who also won Saturday's Labatt Woodbine Oaks with Dancethruthedawn, another Sam-Son Farm homebred. "He loves this course."

Quiet Resolve paid $5.50 and earned $204,840, bringing his winnings to $1,906,281
