Milwaukee Brew's Coltimus Prime Easy Clasico del Caribe Victor

The well-traveled Coltimus Prime made a powerful move around the far turn and coasted to victory in the Clasico del Caribe Invitational Cup before a raucous crowd at Gulfstream Park.

Watch the Invitational Cup

A son of Milwaukee Brew, Coltimus Prime emerged as a leading three-year-old in Canada during the 2014 after a smart win in the Prince of Wales Stakes, the 2nd leg of the Canadian Triple Crown. He was purchased by jockey-turned-bloodstock-agent Rene Douglas and has achieved major success in Douglas' native Panama.

Coltimus Prime earned his way to the Copa Invitacional by winning the Presidente de la Republica (G1) June 4 at Hipodromo Presidente Remon racetrack – the biggest race in Panama. 

“The first time I rode in (Presidente de la Republica), I won it. I thought it would be a great idea to try and win it as an owner. I sent him to Panama and thank God luck was on my side and we were able to win the race,” Douglas said. “That race is a mile and a quarter, the same thing as the (Invitational Cup). The idea was to send him there for the big race in Panama and win it if I can and then qualify here for this race in Gulfstream. I thought he had the class and I think he was the right horse for Panama for that distance."

Coltimus Prime was ridden by the red hot Irad Ortiz and the final margin of victory was 2 1/4 lengths.

“It’s been an amazing day winning three races...” said Ortiz, Jr. "Everyone from these countries dreams of winning these races and in our country the biggest race for us is this Caribbean Classic. For some people this may not be as big, but for me it’s like a Breeder’s Cup race.”

“We were honored to host such an incredible event,” said Tim Ritvo, President of Gulfstream Park and COO of The Stronach Group. “This truly was the brainchild of our founder and honorary chairman Mr. Frank Stronach. This has been two years in the making. [The Stronach Group’s President and Executive Board Member] Mike Rogers and myself traveled to Panama and Puerto Rico the last couple years in hopes of bringing the Clasico Internacional del Caribe to North America and Gulfstream Park, and the response was incredible. We hope to continue building on our partnership with the fans and horsemen from Latin America and the Caribbean and we thank them for participating.”

Silent Sting Captures Kingarvie Stakes; Silent Name's 4th Juvenile SW of '17

Stronach Stables’ Silent Sting came flying through the stretch along the rail to win the $125,000......

Stronach Stables’ Silent Sting came flying through the stretch along the rail to win the $125,000 Kingarvie Stakes for Ontario-sired two-year-olds on Saturday afternoon at Woodbine. The son of Silent Name won over two other Silent Name sons Beer Pressure and Be Vewy Vewy Quiet.

Silent Sting is Silent Name's fourth juvenile blacktype winner of 2017 and his sixth blackytype winner overall, both tops among Canadian stallions.

Watch the Kingarvie Stakes

Silent Sting gave trainer Sid Attard his third victory on the day and back-to-back Saturday stakes wins following the Sir Barton Stakes victory by the Milwaukee Brew son Kingsport one week ago

Luis Contreras worked out the winning trip aboard the Silent Name-Mona Mia colt, who raced midfield throughout the 1-1/16 mile stakes event before diving towards the rail in the stretch as Cooler Mike confronted pacesetter Handsome Like Me (:24.53, :49.41, 1:13.73, 1:38.62).

“I was thinking to go outside but when I saw the rail, I took my shot to go inside and he was strong through it,” said Contreras. “Once he went through the little hole, it was all him.”

Silent Sting prevailed by three-quarters of a length in 1:44.97 over outside closers Beer Pressure and Be Vewy Vewy Quiet while Cooler Mike edged out Handsome Like Me for fourth-place.

Silent Sting was sent postward as the 2-1 favourite in the field of 10 following his close runner-up finish to Be Vewy Vewy Quiet in the seven-furlong Frost King Stakes last month.

“Last time he couldn’t get out in time and today Luis used his head and when it opened he just went for it and he got there,” said Attard.

“It was a big field and he did well,” said Mrs. Stronach, noting Silent Sting will now enjoy a break from racing. “It looks like he’s going to be nice next year.”

Bred in Ontario by Phoenix Rising Farms, Silent Sting has earned a six-figure salary in his debut season with two wins and two seconds from four starts.
