ETOBICOKE, Ontario &ndash; Trainer Ralph Biamonte won last Saturday&rsquo;s Bold Ruckus Stakes with the steady Citius. He will try to keep the ball rolling this Saturday at Woodbine when he sends out Banner Bill in the $150,000 Victoria Stakes, a five-furlong dash for 2-year-olds.\r\nBanner Bill was bet down to 5-1 when he debuted in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special May 15. He broke two lengths behind the others, before closing three wide for a three-quarter-length tally. He galloped out strongly but only got a 50 Beyer Speed Figure for covering the distance in 53.19 seconds. Fourth-place finisher Gin Joint came right back to crush $40,000 maidens.\r\nBiamonte said Banner Bill, an Illinois-bred by Rockport Harbor, was well regarded when he was shipped to him early in the spring.\r\n&ldquo;When he came up from a training center in Florida, they were pretty high on him,&rdquo; Biamonte recalled. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s not that good of a breaker, and we&rsquo;re trying to correct that, but he&rsquo;s got a nice kick at the end. I wish [the Victoria] was a little farther.&rdquo;\r\nBiamonte said he will look at Illinois-bred stakes later this year for Banner Bill, who has the look of a sprinter.\r\n&ldquo;He&rsquo;s not a big horse, but he&rsquo;s well put together,&rdquo; Biamonte said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s compact and looks like a speedball.&rdquo;\r\nDavid Clark, who has won the Victoria four times, will ride Banner Bill, a first-time Lasix-user.\r\nSafraction looks like a player for trainer Greg De Gannes, who won back-to-back runnings of the Victoria with Southern Exchange in 2008 and Olredlgetcha in 2009.\r\nSafractions earned a 66 Beyer while landing his debut from off the pace in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special for Ontario-sired stock May 22. Last Sunday, he breezed five-eighths in a lively 1:00.40.\r\nTrainer John Salzman Jr. entered two speedy first-out winners, Threeanddonedan and Distinctly Donovan.\r\nThreeanddonedan got a 66 Beyer when he graduated with ease over a sloppy strip at Pimlico on April 16. He has worked quickly at Laurel since then. Distinctly Donovan registered a 57 Beyer in his one-length tally at Aqueduct on April 15.\r\nTrainer Wesley Ward won last year&rsquo;s Victoria with Madman Diaries. He sends out Firefall, who has been idle since he led throughout a 2 1/2-furlong dash at Gulfstream on April 17.\r\nTrainer Larry Rivelli supplemented Stark Ravin Mad at a cost of $3,000. Stark Ravin Mad romped at first asking at Arlington, earning a 73 Beyer.
