Queen's Plate winner Dance Smartly produces second straight Plate winner for Sam-Son Farm
Sam-Son Farms' homebred Canadian classic winner Scatter the Gold has been sold to a group of Japanese breeders, who plan to stand him at Shizunai Stallion Station in Japan.
Scatter the Gold's bid to follow in his mother's footsteps by sweeping the Canadian Triple Crown fell a little over three lengths short Saturday as the Sam-Son Farm's homebred finished third in the $500,000 Breeders' Stakes at Woodbine. The Todd Pletcher-trained Lodge Hill earned the win, completing the 1 1/2-mile turf race, run over firm turf, in 2:28.97.
Sam-San Farm's Scatter the Gold was installed as the 4-5 morning-line favorite to win the Breeders' Stakes Saturday at Woodbine. A win over the six other 3-year-olds entered in the 1 1/2-mile turf race would earn son of Mr. Prospector a sweep of the Canadian Triple Crown, duplicating the feat of his mother, 1991 Canadian Triple Crown winner Dance Smartly.
Sam-Son Farms' homebred 3-year-old colt Scatter the Gold won the $283,800 Prince of Wales Stakes--the second jewel in the Canadian Triple Crown-- Sunday at Fort Erie. Scatter the Gold won for the first time last month when he won the first leg of the Triple Crown, the Queen's Plate Stakes.
Sam-Son Farm's Scatter the Gold, winless in four previous races, rallied for a 4 1/4-length victory in the $1-million Queen's Plate Sunday at Woodbine.
