Milwaukee Brew Son 'King' Again in Sir Barton Stakes

12.02.2017 -

The Milwaukee Brew son Kingsport, who won the $125,000 Sir Barton Stakes two years ago, swept by his rivals in the stretch to claim the 2017 edition of the stakes event for Ontario-sired horses Dec. 2 at Woodbine.

Trained by Sid Attard for Goldmart Farms and Royal Laser Racing Inc., Kingsport earned his first win of the season and seventh victory from 23 starts. He increased his earnings to $498,888.

Kingsport raced mid-pack inside and was not involved in an accident that occurred in the final turn of the afternoon's eighth race. Jockey Jesse Campbell sent the five-year-old gelding outside into the stretch and he stormed home a 2-1/2 length winner in 1:43.23 for 1 1/16 miles ahead of 2-5 favorite Mr Havercamp. Sent postward at odds of 7-1, Kingsport returned $16.80 to win.

Kingsport was bred by Richard Moylan out of the Green Dancer mare Green Jewel. He went through the ring for $45,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sales June 2014 2-year-olds and horses of racing age sale, when consigned by RiceHorse Stables. Agent Brandon Rice signed the ticket. He initially was offered at the 2013 Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society Canadian-bred yearling sale.

His other stakes wins at Woodbine include the 2014 Kingarvie Stakes, the 2015 Deputy Minister Stakes, and the 2016 Shepperton Stakes.
