ETOBICOKE, Ontario &ndash; Trainer Mark Casse had a rather disappointing Sunday at Fort Erie when Hippolytus, the gelding whom he had sent out for a second-place finish in the Queen&rsquo;s Plate, failed to build on that effort when fourth in the Prince of Wales.\r\nBut things went well enough on the home front in a pair of stakes last weekend as Clement Rock gave Casse his sixth stakes win of the meeting in Saturday&rsquo;s Toronto Cup and Dene Court and Quality Miss produced a 2-4 finish in Sunday&rsquo;s Shady Well.\r\nClement Rock was bred in Florida by his owner, Eugene Melnyk, and was unstarted as a 2-year-old.\r\nAfter finishing last of 11 over sloppy going in an off-the-turf maiden race in his debut at Fair Grounds on March 4, Clement Rock freshened up for a turf campaign at Woodbine and is now 3 for 3 on the Woodbine course.\r\nThe $156,000 Toronto Cup was Clement Rock&rsquo;s longest test to date, at 1 1/8 miles, and the colt was all out to win by a neck as the 3-5 favorite under regular rider Luis Contreras.\r\n&ldquo;I was a little concerned when he opened up on the lead at the top of the stretch,&rdquo; said Casse, who had sent out Clement Rock to win a 1 1/16-mile maiden race here June 10 and the one-mile Charlie Barley just more than two weeks later.\r\n&ldquo;He&rsquo;s just a young horse; that was just his fourth start. He won, but it wasn&rsquo;t pretty.&rdquo;\r\nCasse has no immediate plan for Clement Rock&rsquo;s next engagement.\r\n&ldquo;I&rsquo;m going to give him a bit of a break,&rdquo; Casse said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s run three hard races in a very short period of time.&rdquo;\r\nDene Court, a Melnyk homebred who had won her debut over five furlongs here June 25, battled throughout the $151,200 Shady Well, but came up a half-length shy of invader Judy the Beauty in the 5 1/2-furlong stakes for Ontario-foaled 2-year-olds.\r\nQuality Lass, debuting in the 11-horse Shady Well field for West Point Thoroughbreds, was beaten 5 1/4 lengths as the fourth-place finisher.\r\n&ldquo;I was very proud of Dene Court; I thought she ran very well,&rdquo; Casse said. &ldquo;I think the difference between winning and losing was being down on the inside.\r\n&ldquo;I think you&rsquo;re going to hear a lot more in the future from both her and Judy the Beauty. They might be very good fillies.&rdquo;\r\nCasse also was pleased with the performance of Quality Lass.\r\n&ldquo;She ran very green, but I thought her race was very good and it will move her forward,&rdquo; Casse said.\r\nJudy the Beauty already a world traveler\r\nJudy the Beauty, owned and trained by Wesley Ward, was making her third career start and remained undefeated in the Shady Well.\r\nMaking her record a considerable cut above the mundane, however, is the fact that Judy the Beauty has made her three appearances in three different countries &ndash; the United States, France, and Canada.\r\n&ldquo;I had her scheduled to race at Royal Ascot, along with the others in my contingent,&rdquo; said Ward, who currently is based at Saratoga, where the meeting begins Friday.\r\n&ldquo;When I brought her back, she was absolutely ready to run. I had to decide between this race and the Schuylerville, and I have another filly for that race.&rdquo;\r\nWard continues to be impressed by Judy the Beauty&rsquo;s determination.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s an amazing horse, the way she wants to win,&rdquo; Ward said. &ldquo;She just digs down into her soul to do it.&rdquo;\r\nJudy the Beauty was on her way back to Saratoga, where Ward will be assessing her condition before planning the next step in her campaign.\r\nBanner Bill makes it three in a row\r\nTrainer Ralph Biamonte also had a solid stakes weekend here, with Banner Bill winning Saturday&rsquo;s $150,000 Colin at six furlongs and Roses and Shine running third in the Shady Well.\r\nBanner Bill, bred in Illinois, was recording his third win in as many starts for R Plus Partners, a group that includes his breeders, Ron Magers and Bob Marcocchio.\r\nHis earlier successes came in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden race and in the five-furlong Victoria Stakes.\r\nDavid Clark, Banner Bill&rsquo;s regular rider, had to work hard to get the gelding home in the Colin after being headed in midstretch.\r\n&ldquo;He didn&rsquo;t run the way we expected,&rdquo; Biamonte said. &ldquo;I think he was a little too sharp after his fast work the weekend before, and he was too close early. But it&rsquo;s all going to make him a better horse.&rdquo;\r\nIf all remains well, Banner Bill will make his next start in the Grade 2, $150,000 Saratoga Special, a 6 1/2-furlong race on Aug. 15.\r\nRoses and Shine, who races for owner and co-breeder James Sabiston, won first crack out for a $40,000 claiming price, but then finished fourth in the open My Dear at five furlongs in her start prior to the Shady Well.\r\n&ldquo;I was really happy with her, too,&rdquo; Biamonte said. &ldquo;She just got beat by some better horses, but she made a run and left some good ones behind her, too.&rdquo;\r\nBiamonte will be sending Roses and Shine to Sabiston&rsquo;s nearby Longview Farm for a two-week breather.\r\nThe filly then will come back into the track with a long-term eye toward the Muskoka, the 6 1/2-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies that will be one of six stakes on the Sept. 5 program for products of the local yearling sales.\r\nRoses and Shine was a $19,000 buyback at the select session of the sale here last fall.\r\nBiamonte nominates pair to Vandal\r\nThe Biamonte barn, which continues to have a solid meeting with its 2-year-olds with a record now standing at 7-3-3 from 15 starters, has the maidens Menlo Castle and Where&rsquo;s Johnson nominated to the July 31 Vandal, a six-furlong race for Ontario-foaled 2-year-olds.\r\nMenlo Castle and Where&rsquo;s Johnson both performed encouragingly when debuting in open maiden races at six furlongs here July 10.\r\nWhere&rsquo;s Johnson almost came out a winner, closing to miss by a head as the runner-up, but Menlo Castle&rsquo;s division went in significantly faster time and he was beaten 1 1/2 lengths as the third-place finisher.\r\nBiamonte is not committed to the Vandal, but could start one of the geldings there and the other in a maiden race.
