You Don't Pass rallies wide in Kenora


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - You Don't Pass ($5.70) came wide under Chantal Sutherland to notch his first stakes Monday at Woodbine in the Kenora. The six-furlong dash was one of six $125,000 stakes on the card for graduates of yearling sales staged by the Ontario division of the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society.

Favored Drunken Love and Lake Secret dueled up front in the four-horse field, while You Don't Pass and Hosta Rica raced behind them as a team on the backstretch.

You Don't Pass and Hosta Rica both commenced a wide rally exiting the turn, and You Don't Pass hit the front at the sixteenth pole before scoring by a length over Hosta Rica. Lake Secret weakened to third, and Drunken Love faded to fourth.

"I loved the [outside] post and I loved the horse," said Bob Tiller, who trains You Don't Pass for 3 Sons Racing Stable. "Chantal got him to relax, and he proved today that he could beat older horses."

Legal Move was scratched from the Kenora, which only had win wagering.

* Society's Chairman ($3.40) captured the Halton for the second year in a row under Jono Jones.

Society's Chairman drafted in behind runners until the eighth pole, before drawing away quickly to prevail by 3 3/4 lengths over Cryptonite Kid. My Imperial Dancer, the 2007 Halton winner, finished third in the one-mile turf event, which was run in a time of 1:33.59.

"He has a big kick, and we wanted to cover him up for as long as possible," said trainer Roger Attfield. "It worked out fine today, even though the pace was slow."

* Fastin Bear ($15.50) registered a decisive victory in the Simcoe, a seven-furlong sprint for 2-year-olds.

Eurico Rosa Da Silva guided Fastin Bear through moderate fractions, before drawing off for a 5 1/4-length win in a time of 1:23.84. Mobthewarrior came wide from well back in the 13-horse field to edge out favored Doctor Jack for second.

It was the first stakes score for the Reade Baker-trained Fastin Bear, who is owned by Bear Stable.

* Attfield won his second stakes on the card with Sand Cove in the Elgin. Sand Cove ($4.30) battled on the lead before kicking clear in the stretch to score by 3 3/4 lengths over Keino West. He covered 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.12

under Richard Dos Ramos.

* First-time starter Sound of Thunder ($85.70) rallied wide from last in a 13-horse field of 2-year-old fillies to take the seven-furlong Muskoka by a neck over favored Amazon Belle. Tyler Pizarro rode her for trainer Mark Casse.

* Roses n Wine ($4.90), trained by David Bell, romped in the Algoma, winning the 1 1/16-mile route for fillies and mares by 8 3/4 lengths under Sutherland.
