My Silencer is Silent Name's Second Stakes Winner in Three Days

11.01.2018 -

My Silencer, a son of Silent Name,  was a winner right out of the gate, taking the $100,000 Frost King Stakes for two-year-olds in his career debut on Wednesday evening at Woodbine Racetrack.

The two first-time starters in the 10-horse field led the way with My Silencer darting out to pressure Hungary through opening fractions of :23.33 and :46.56. My Silencer took over command mid-turn and ran away from his rivals down the stretch to win the seven-furlong affair by 3-1/2 lengths in 1:23.89.



Dun Drum stalked the pace and came through between horses to finish second ahead of late-closers Krachenwagen and Simcoe Stakes champion Blessed Two, who closed from the back of the pack.

While My Silencer was making just his first career start, winning jockey Luis Contreras was impressed with the two-year-old’s natural ability.

“He was a professional. It seems like he has run before,” said Contreras. “I didn’t get any bad habit, nothing, he was just perfect. He broke really sharp and put himself in a great spot. I didn’t want to take him away from that, so I just tried to save the horse as much as I could, and he was just taking me to the wire.”

The Silent Name-Serena’s Rose gelding is trained by William Tharrenos for owners René and Darlene Hunderup of Heste Sport Inc.

“It’s wonderful, finally it happened,” said René Hunderup of scoring the stakes victory with his homebred. “I knew he had the third gear and I told Luis don’t forget that third gear and he sure used it.”

My Silencer's Frost King victory comes just three days after the Ivan Dalos homebred Silent Name filly scored in the Grade 3 Ontario Fashion Stakes. Silent Name leads all Canadian sires with eight blacktype winners and over $2.8 million in progeny earnings.
