The last day of racing for the season at Northlands Park was a very good day for Highfield.
Three winners for Highfield stallion Cape Canaveral.
In the 4th race, 3 yr. old Ninja Prospector draws off in the stretch to win by 5 1/4 lengths for Alberta owners Ron and Sandra Kirchner. Ninja Prospector was a 2012 CTHS sales yearling, bred and sold by Highfield .
Coming right back in the 5th race, another 3 yr. old, Guns a Blazin, breaks his maiden with a gritty nose victory for owner Rogie’s Stable.
In the 8th race, former Highfield stallion Captain Bodgit sires the first two finishers, as Captain’s Tale wins for Albertans Red Hawk Racing (Darrell and James Bauder), and the six year old Stakes Winning Mare Lynnwood, finishes second for B.C. owners Kootenay Royal Stable.
The 11th race on the card, the $50,000 Canadian Juvenile Stakes for 2 yr olds was won by the good Cape Canaveral son, Capitalism. Winning his third Stakes race in a row, Capitalism goes wires to wire in the one mile event. Capitalism races for leading Alberta owners, Derby Quest Farms Ltd. and Shot in the Dark Racing Corp. Capitalism was bred and sold by Highfield in the 2013 CTHS AB. Div. yearling sale.
Finishing second in the Juvenile was the North Light(IRE) gelding, Centerfire. Racing for the Alberta connections of Darrell and Curtis Landry, Don Danards’ Red Diamond Stable and Highfield SF Ltd., Stakes Winner Centrefire, comes from off the pace to miss by a half length. Another Highfield SF Ltd. bred, Centrefire was the high selling yearling in the 2013 CTHS AB. Div. sale.
