Synergy hitting on all cylinders for Canadian Derby

BY RANDY GOULDING OF THE DAILY RACING FORM

Synergy wins the Sir Winston Churchill Stakes at Hastings Racecourse

Four-Footed FotosSynergy has won all three of his starts this year, including the Sir Winston Churchill at Hastings in August.

The 91st running of the Grade 3, $100,000 Canadian Derby headlines a stellar card at Century Mile on Sunday.

The mile and a quarter derby drew 11 3-year-olds who will each carry 126 pounds. It goes as race 10 on a 12-race card that begins at 5:15 p.m. Mountain. Post time for the derby is 9:55 p.m.

The Canadian Derby is supported by the $75,000 Century Casino Oaks, $75,000 Northlands Distaff Handicap, and $75,000 Century Mile Handicap. Quarter Horse fans aren’t left out of the fun as the $33,370 Alberta Bred Derby for Quarter Horses kicks off the festivities.

Synergy is the one to beat in the derby. A Russell and Lois Bennett homebred trained by Barbara Heads, Synergy is perfect in three starts this year, all at Hastings, and is coming off a convincing win going a mile and a sixteenth in the $50,000 Sir Winston Churchill on Aug. 13 with Efrain Hernandez riding.

Hernandez was on board when Synergy worked five furlongs in company with the Century Casino Oaks-bound Sangria over a sloppy track at Hastings in 1:01.00 on Sept. 19.

“It was a good work for him,” said Heads. “He did it easily and he should like the mile and a quarter.”

Synergy, a son of Sungold, will break from post 10 with leading rider Rico Walcott riding.

Mongolian Wind was being considered for the Preakness, but his connections came to their senses and opted for this spot, where he looks like a major player.

Trained by Wade Eno and ridden by Wilmer Galviz, Mongolian Wind won the $60,000 Manitoba Derby at Assiniboia Downs on Aug. 3 and came back to beat older horses in the $30,000 Gold Cup there. Both races were at a mile and an eighth.

Eno was pleased with how Mongolian Wind worked an easy six furlongs in 1:18.00 at Century on Sept. 22.

“He likes the track here and has been training very well,” said Eno. “The last eighth will be his race.”

Mongolian Wind, a son of Mucho Macho Man, drew the outside post.

Heading the local contingent is Maskwecis, who is trained by Canadian Hall of Fame trainer Red Smith.

A son of Jimmy Creed, Maskwecis is coming off an all-out win going a mile and a sixteenth with Walcott aboard in the $40,000 Beauford for Alberta-breds and seems a bit suspect at the distance. Rey Williams picks up the mount.

At Attention took advantage of a fast and contested pace to win the $50,000 CTHS Sales Stakes at Hastings on Sept. 5. He was making his first start for trainer Dino Condilenios, who thinks the British Columbia-bred son of Shanghai Bobby will thrive at the distance.

“He should love the extra ground,” said Condilenios. “We gallop him three times around every day and he gets stronger on the last round. I’m looking forward to running him in the derby.”

Infinite Patience tops Oaks

The Heads-trained Infinite Patience will be a short price in the mile and an eighth Oaks. By Sungold out of Montero, Infinite Patience will appreciate being back on dirt and facing easier company after coming up empty in the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks and $250,000 Bison City at Woodbine in her last two starts.

Running on dirt at Hastings last year, she dominated her opponents in all five of her races and was voted the Horse of the Year in British Columbia.

Walcott has been named to ride her and stablemate Sangria.

◗ Heads will also have the favorite in the one-mile Distaff with Sunburst, who won the $40,000 Red Tail Landing in her only start at Century Mile.

She is coming off a runner-up finish behind the sensational Here’s Hannah in an open allowance race at Hastings on Sept. 6. The 85 Beyer she received stands out in the Distaff field, and the 82 she received for her win in the Red Tail Landing tops anything her opponents have posted.

The main threat could come from Infinite Patience’s half-sister Raider, who is coming off an easy win for trainer Greg Tracy n the $39,000 Shirley Virgil at Century on Aug. 7. A 5-year-old daughter of Stephanotis, Raider will be making her first start for trainer Karline Kingston.

◗ In the Century Mile, trainer Jim Brown has two solid shots with Go Away and Stormchaser.

Go Away is making his start after being claimed by Brown. A son of Scat Daddy, Go Away does his best running late and is coming off a narrow loss going a mile in a $20,000 optional claimer at Canterbury on Sept. 3.

Stormchaser is going for the hat trick, having won an allowance sprint and then the $50,000 Red Dial Express going six furlongs at Century Mile on Sept. 6. The speedy son of Stormin Fever will not be used as a rabbit for Go Away, Brown said.

“They are both in it to win it,” said Brown.

Deuces Are Wild will be the one they have to run down. Whiskey Bound did run him down in the one-mile Arctic Laur on Sept. 4, and he will try again in the Mile.

Alberta’s Biggest Race of the Year – 91st Canadian Derby

SYNERGY wins the Chris Loseth Stakes for 3-year-olds on July 20 for Russ and Lois Bennett – photo courtesy Patti Tubbs

A super field of 11 will go to the post for the 91st CANADIAN DERBY (G3) Sunday evening at Century Mile in Nisku, Alberta. There will be 300 people allowed on the grounds to watch the race as COVID-19 has restricted all sports and events.

Century Mile has a fabulous stakes-laden card on Sunday and the Derby has an intriguing field.

The 1 1/4 mile event has a post time of 9:55 Mountain time. A couple of British Columbia-breds are among the favourites.

SYNERGY, by Sungold, is 3 for 3 this year for Russ and Lois Bennett and comes in with a 77 Beyer Figure from his latest victory at Hastings Racecourse. Rico Walcott gets the mount.

MASKWECIS is a 2-time stakes winner in his home province of Alberta in 2020 and will be ridden by Rey Williams as regular rider Walcott rides Syunergy.

BC-bred AT ATTENTION has an 80 Beyer Figure from a win in the CTHS Sales Stakes and the son of Shanghai Bobby is arrives in Alberta for owner Peter Redekop.

MONGOLIAN WIND has won 3 of 4 races including 2 stakes at Assiniboia Downs for owners Mongolian Stable and Andrew Stronach.

Oh, and trainer Robertino Diadoro, who has won a pile of Canadian Derbys, has a starter who has been recently gelded (read more below).

A feature on the contenders –

 

CURTIS STOCK preview on TheHorses.com

This column is the Robertino Diodoro factor. Diodoro has won four of the last seven Canadian Derbies. He goes for his fifth on Sunday with a horse that will probably be an overlooked overlay: Something Natural, a horse that appeared to be a disinterested third in the Manitoba Derby behind Mongolian Wind and Mr. Unusual, who have both come to Edmonton, a horse that was claimed for just $20,000 out of a race where he was defeated by 15 lengths and a horse that hasn’t won since Feb. 15.

But to ignore Diodoro is like ignoring the elephant in the room and Diodoro is a big elephant having firmly establishing himself as one of the top trainers in North America with 209 wins this year – third best on the continent behind only Steve Asmussen and Karl Broberg. Never mind that Diodoro’s win percentage (22%) is higher than both Asmussen (19%) and Broberg (also 19%).

CANADIAN DERBY NEWS

Earlier this week I wrote about the Rico Walcott factor – the eight-time Alberta jockey champion and winner of five Canadian Derbies virtually having his pick of mounts and choosing probable favourite Synergy for Sunday’s $100,000 mile and a quarter renewal at Century Mile.

This column is the Robertino Diodoro factor. Diodoro has won four of the last seven Canadian Derbies. He goes for his fifth on Sunday with a horse that will probably be an overlooked overlay: Something Natural, a horse that appeared to be a disinterested third in the Manitoba Derby behind Mongolian Wind and Mr. Unusual, who have both come to Edmonton, a horse that was claimed for just $20,000 out of a race where he was defeated by 15 lengths and a horse that hasn’t won since Feb. 15.

But to ignore Diodoro is like ignoring the elephant in the room and Diodoro is a big elephant having firmly establishing himself as one of the top trainers in North America with 209 wins this year – third best on the continent behind only Steve Asmussen and Karl Broberg. Never mind that Diodoro’s win percentage (22%) is higher than both Asmussen (19%) and Broberg (also 19%).

More to the point, Diodoro thinks Something Natural is more than ready. “I think he’s going to run big,” Diodoro said of the three-year-old that drew post 9 at Wednesday morning’s post position draw. Twyla Bensmiller, who has been looking after (Something Natural) in Edmonton, sent me before and after pictures from when she first got him over a month ago to this week. They look like two different horses. It’s incredible.”

Diodoro said he believes Something Natural was only about “20 percent right for the Manitoba Derby. He just wasn’t ready. “It was a long ship to Canterbury Downs from Kentucky and then it was a long ship from Canterbury to Winnipeg. “He was underweight when he ran in the Manitoba Derby. He’s still not big but he looks 100 per cent better,” said Diodoro, who finished third in North America last year in wins.

If Something Natural runs back to what he showed last winter and early this spring, Diodoro could be right. After all, the chestnut son of Violence did run second to Wells Bayou at Arkansas’ Oaklawn Park. Wells Bayou won the $1-million Twinspires Louisiana Derby. No other horse in the race which saw 11 horses entered Wednesday can boast anything close to that.

Something Natural also won a solid allowance race at Oaklawn. “He’s got some good, solid works in him. He worked a nice five furlongs recently and galloped out strong,” said Calgary born and raised Diodoro, who left Alberta in 2012. “I really believe he’s going to move up big time from his last race.”

As for the fourth-place finish when he was claimed in Kentucky by the same owners that won the Canadian Derby in 2017 (Chief Know it All) and 2018 (Sky Promise) and where he was defeated by 15 lengths, Diodoro said Something Natural “washed out badly. “The cooler weather is going to help him.” Diodoro also won the 2013 Derby with Broadway Empire and the 2014 Derby with Edison.

Gambler drew the rail for the Derby; Big Al’s Vision got post two; At Attention starts from post three; Rail Hugger is four; Bare Back Jack drew post five; Mr. Unusual starts from post six; local favourite Maskewcis drew post seven; Real Grace is eight; Something Natural is nine; Synergy got post 10 and Mongolian Wind the outside 11 post.
Diodoro said he is “happy” with the nine-hole.

“In a big field I’d rather be out there than have the one or two post positions. “We’re not on a bull ring anymore so the post isn’t going to hurt him,” said Diodoro, referencing the one-mile Century Mile track compared to Northlands five-eighths of a mile oval. “Hopefully he runs out of there a little, crosses over and lays fourth or fifth.” While Synergy is the likely favourite he won’t be the overwhelming choice by any means as this Derby is really wide open.

Maskwecis is the local favourite having won three of his four starts this year – all at Century Mile – including the Beaufort and Western Canada stakes. However, Maskwecis will have to overcome a quarter-crack injury on his right front foot which trainer R.K. ‘Red’ Smith said surfaced 10 days ago. “The big thing is getting the infection out which we did. We’ve put a bar shoe on him and the last couple of days he’s been training good and he went real good (Wednesday). He’s a tough horse.

“Horses run and win with quarter-cracks all the time. The big question is whether he wants a mile and a quarter. The pedigree doesn’t say so but hopefully the heart does.”

Smith said he is also worried by a lack of speed in the race. “Real Grace should be in front by himself,” he said of the horse who ran tough against older horses last time and led most of the way in the Count Lathum two starts ago before being caught by Rail Hugger in a race where Maskwecis was third.

“Bare Back Jack should lay up pretty close but outside of that most of the horses look a lot like mine and want to be sitting just off the pace,” said Smith. “I think Rail Hugger and Mongolian Wind are the two tough horses in the race. And Synergy.” Synergy is three-for-three this year with all of his wins coming at Hastings Park in Vancouver, B.C.

Rail Hugger would appear to really enjoy the mile and a quarter distance. He came from well back to win the Count Lathum and was running away at the end.
Mongolian Wind has won three in a row including the Manitoba Derby by a head over Mr. Unusual.

STOCK REPORT – Sunday’s first post is 5:15. The Derby is the 10th race on a 12-race program which has three other stakes race in its lineup: the Century Casino Oaks for three-year-old fillies; the well-matched Northlands Distaff Handicap which drew a field of 11 older fillies and mares and the Century Mile Handicap for older horses which attracted a field of 10.

There is also the $33,370 added Alberta Derby Final for quarterhorses. Friday’s card has been moved up to 6:15 p.m. There are two stakes on Friday’s card – the Freedom of the City for two-year-old fillies where She Likes to Party is the 3-5 morning line favourite and the Birdcatcher for two-year-old colts and geldings where Dad’s Legacy is the 9-5 favourite.
