Woodbine: Regal Warning tries again in Ontario-sired allowance

Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Regal Warning made quite a splash on Queen’s Plate Day, July 7, when he killed a ton of pick-four tickets while graduating at first asking from off the pace at 34-1.

Regal Warning tries Ontario-sired allowance company for the second time in the nightcap on Friday’s nine-race card at Woodbine. The race is a 6 1/2-furlong sprint for nonwinners of two.

Regal Warning was the favorite in a seven-furlong allowance in his last race Aug. 11. He pressed a moderate pace before hitting the front at the eighth pole and then barely held on for third after weakening in the final strides.

Regal Warning breezed a half-mile in 48.80 seconds last Sunday for trainer Debbie England. David Moran, who was aboard for his maiden victory, has the mount on the 3-year-old gelding.

Canuspellpatience could lead the way, going a distance over which he’s questionable. He put up an 84 Beyer Speed Figure in two of his four outings, including when he crushed maidens going five furlongs June 23. He has been idle since finishing a distant fourth of four in the seven-furlong Deputy Minister Stakes on July  24.

Jermaine Bridgmohan will ride Canuspellpatience again for trainer Ralph Biamonte.

Executive Shopper defeated $25,000 maidens in his second appearance of the meet, before getting softened up in a speed duel in a July 13 allowance. He was beaten just a nose by Regal Warning when fourth in his best performance Aug. 11, from which victorious Fighting Chris exited to finish a wide fourth in the restricted Vice Regent Stakes.

Tyler Pizarro will break Executive Shopper from post 1, and trainer Sam DiPasquale has taken the blinkers off him.

Chief Chato is in with a shot. He never fired during a wide journey when he tried the turf for the first time Aug. 3. He was previously second in a six-furlong allowance on the Polytrack for trainer Greg Cox, who had a productive August.

Orbit Express wound up a neck behind Chief Chato in third June 28 and has since been competitive on the grass.

A Lifetime of War lacked room along the inside before finishing 1 1/2 lengths back two starts ago and was also a close fifth in another allowance most recently.

Go Shermin Go, who earned his diploma late last fall on the Polytrack, is coming off an improved second behind a runaway winner on the grass.

The speedy Ratzo Rizzo will have his work cut out for him if Canuspellpatience is allowed to roll early.
