While Canadian Frontier still hasn’t raced in his name-sake country, he is cleaning up at Monmouth Park. The speedy son of Gone West scored his second consecutive stakes win at the New Jersey track with a length score over favored Wildcat Heir in the Aug. 8 Teddy Drone Stakes. His other Monmouth stakes score came in the July 3 Longfellow Stakes.
Stanley Hough conditions Canadian Frontier for Joyce Robsham, widow of the late E. Paul Robsham, a Boston-area real estate developer and philanthropist who died in February. The Robshams privately purchased Canadian Frontier from trainer Kiaran McLaughlin in late May 2003.
Canadian Frontier began his racing career for Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin Racing and trainer Saeed bin Suroor. Canadian Frontier made two starts in this country before he was shipped to the United Arab Emirates where he made one start with McLaughlin. He was under the care of McLaughlin when he broke his maiden by 13/4 lengths at Belmont in May 2003.
Bloodstock agent John Ferguson purchased Canadian Frontier for $325,000 at the 2000 Keeneland September yearling sale from the consignment of his breeder, Marshall Naify’s 505 Farms, Narvick International, agent.
Naify, who died in 2000, privately purchased the grade II winning dam of Canadian Frontier, Borodislew, in the mid-1990s from Walmac International’s John T.L. Jones Jr. who had raced the mare in France. Borodislew was consigned by Narvick International for the Naify estate to the 2000 Keeneland November mixed sale. Charlotte Weber’s Live Oak Stud purchased the mare (in foal to Bertrando) for $750,000. The Bertrando offspring, Bertranslew, is currently in foal to Live Oak stallion Eltish.
Borodislew has a 2-year-old Seeking the Gold colt, Seeking Slew, who is in training with Bill Mott, and a yearling full brother to that colt. Borodislew, who is boarded at Robert Clay’s Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, Ky., produced a Seeking the Gold filly in April of this year and is currently in foal to Aldebaran, who entered stud in 2004 at the Phillips’ family’s Darby Dan Farm near Lexington.
Gone West is the sire of Canadian Frontier and 75 other added-money winners, including additional 2004 stakes winners Speightstown (gr. II), Foregone, Surging River, and Conroy (UAE-III). Gone West stands at Alice and Dr. John Chandler’s Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington. His 2004 fee was $125,000 and he will stand the 2005 season for $150,000.—L.D.
