Woodbine: Uncaptured flawless so far

Uncaptured now is 4 for 4 after his victory in the Swynford.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Uncaptured kept his perfect record intact here in last Sunday’s $168,900 Swynford, scoring by 3 1/4 lengths in the seven-furlong stakes under his regular rider, Patrick Husbands.

“He does it in the morning, and he does it in the afternoon,” said Mark Casse, who trains the 2-year-old colt for owner John Oxley. “He’s a beautiful-moving horse. He’s just all class.”

Uncaptured now is 4 for 4 and was recording his third stakes victory in the Swynford after defeating Ontario-breds in the 5 1/2-furlong Clarendon and six-furlong Vandal.

His winner’s share of the $168,900 Swynford purse, enhanced by an $18,000 bonus for Ontario-breds and the unclaimed fifth-place share, amounted to $133,400 and brings his bankroll to $333,660.

Next up for Uncaptured is the Oct. 7 Grey, an open 1 1/16-mile race that offers Grade 3 status and a purse of $200,000.

“Depending on how he runs in the Grey, we’d have two options,” Casse said. “We could give him a break, and then get him ready for next year, or we could maybe go to Santa Anita and see how he trains on the dirt out there.”

Santa Anita is the host for this year Breeders’ Cup, and the Grade 1, $2 million Juvenile will be run over 1 1/16 miles on Nov. 3.
