Date: 08/16/2015

The $500,000 Breeders' Stakes is the third and final race of Canada's Triple Crown restricted to 3-year-olds foaled in Canada, but with different winners in the Queen's Plate and Prince of Wales Stakes, there will not be a sweep this year, and no winner since Wando in 2003. A field of 9 contested the 124th renewal of this 1 1/2 mile classic, one complete lap of the E.P. Taylor Turf Course on Sunday afternoon. The turf was very firm and conditions were very tropical at the Toronto oval, with temperatures in the high 80's which felt closer to 100 with the 50% relative humidity. With Queen's Plate winner Shaman Ghost bypassing the race, Plate Trial Stakes winner Danish Dynaformer was sent off as the 7-5 favorite despite finishing second ias the favorite in the Queen's Plate and 6th in the Prince of Wales. In to challenge him included 7-2 second choice Lucky Lindy, second in the Toronto Cup last out, and 5-1 third choice Conquest Boogaloo, 5th in the Prince of Wales after 3rd in both Plate Trial and Queen's Plate. Prince of Wales winner Breaking Lucky was the 13-2 fourth choice.

Danish Dynaformer leads in the stretch.

Jockey David Moran sent 32-1 Samuel Dechamplain to a clear lead first time by and he set easy fractions of 25.80, 52.20, 1:17.10, and 1:41.14 while as many as 3 lengths in front of Danish Dynaformer and Breaking Lucky stalking him second and third respectively. Entering the lane, Samuel Dechamplain continued to lead through 1 1/4 miles in 2:05.52 but was tiring. Danish Dynaformer seized the advantage, quickly opening up a 5 length lead at the 1/8 pole. Conquest Boogaloo, 9th early, came out widest of all for his rally but Danish Dynaformer cruised to a 7 3/4 length win in a time of 2:29.28 over the firm going. It was another 1 3/4 length back to Lucky Lindy third. Breaking Lucky gave way after 9 furlongs and cantered home last beaten 35 1/2 lengths.

This is what he wants to do. We made a big mistake going into the Prince of Wales but it didn't bother him. He worked well all week. He just ran phenomenally."

He can be quite aggressive. I give all my respect to Roger. I breezed him on the dirt and he breezed so good I said to Roger, 'How come he's not going to the Prince of Wales? Roger said, 'He's not bred for the race.' Unfortunately, we went in the race and it was no good."

It was unlucky we were a little too far back, we followed the wrong horses and we ended up going backwards. It was just a tough trip."

Right: Third place finisher Lucky Lindy behind the starting gate. Jockey Robby Albarado said, "At the 3/8 pole I took a little run at the winner. He was the horse to beat and I made him work for a little while, but he showed his class and went on."

The horses break from the starting gate for the Breeders' Stakes. Husbands added, "I didn't want to get the horse into trouble. As we went into the first turn there, (Jim) McAleney (aboard Breaking Lucky) came up next to me and looked at me and said: 'Jock, what are you going to do?"'And I said ĎAll right' and I just turned him loose. He relaxed and I just had an easy journey from there."
