Woodbine: Strut the Course dominates Eternal Search Stakes


ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Strut the Course ($6.70) notched her first stakes win with ease Monday at Woodbine in the $125,000 Eternal Search.

Strut the Course won from off the pace by 6 1/2 lengths over Seeking Toussaud. Dancing Bay wound up third, and the favored front-runner, Laughing Falcon, faded to fourth.

Todd Kabel rode the Barb Minshall-trained Strut the Course, who completed the 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.67.

“I expected a big race from her today, and she showed up,” Minshall said.
