Regal Conqueror takes the Victorian Queen under Eurico Rosa Da Silva.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Favored Regal Conqueror put away the other speed and kept on going to land her stakes debut Saturday at Woodbine in the $125,000 Victorian Queen.

Regal Conqueror ($4.50) dueled with 45-1 shot Seeking a Glitter through moderate fractions in the six-furlong sprint for Ontario-sired 2-year-old fillies. Regal Conqueror opened up a clear lead early in the stretch, and never looked back during a 2 1/2-length tally, in 1:10.51.

Third choice Lexie Lou rallied very wide to beat out second favorite On Rainbow Bridge for second in the seven-horse field.

Eurico Rosa Da Silva got a leg up from trainer Darwin Banach on the unbeaten Regal Conqueror, who banked $75,000 for owner/breeder William Sorokolit. 

“She can run,” said Da Silva. “When I rode her the first time, she gave me the feeling that she’s five years old. She’s so professional. She makes your job very easy.”
