The Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Ontario Division) has announced the top earners in the Ontario Sired Racing Rewards Program for 2009.
Dance for Us, ridden by Chantal Sutherland, won the second leg of the Triple Tiara for Canadian-bred 3-year-old fillies when she prevailed by a nose in Woodbine's $217,665 Bison City Stakes June 28.
Milwaukee Appeal notched her first career stakes win in Woodbine's $122,351 Ontario Lassie Stakes Nov. 30, defeating the 2-5 favorite Retraceable by 1 1/4 lengths.
Frank Stronach's Adena Springs Farm will conduct a sale of 2-year-olds in training in March of 2009. Adena Springs' representatives had previously announced a decision to discontinue the auction earlier this year.
Van Lear Rose, sent off at odds of 9-1, closed from well off the pace to mow down favored Livin Lovin in the final strides on her way to a half-length victory in the $254,293 Mazarine Stakes (Can-III) for 2-year-old fillies at Woodbine Oct. 5.
Two-year-olds take the spotlight Oct. 5 when Woodbine presents the Grey Stakes and the Mazarine Stakes, a pair of grade III events worth $250,000 apiece at 1 1/16 miles on the Polytrack racing surface.
