Signature Red's Latonka Still Unbeaten After Colin S. Victory

10.09.2017 -

Latonka (pink silks), who came from the clouds to prevail in his first start, duplicated that feat at Woodbine on Monday by rallying from well back to capture the $125,000 Bull Page Stakes by three-quarters of a length under a jubilant Gary Boulanger.

The six-furlong Bull Page, for Ontario-sired two-year-old colts and geldings, was the sixth stakes winner of the meeting for Boulanger but the first  for trainer Denyse McClachrie.

"He's showed us a lot of class in the morning,” said Boulanger. “He's learning a lot. He's obviously a horse with a tremendous turn of foot and I don't know how good he is yet, but he's been awfully good to us and he's a pleasure to ride and pleasure to be around. He's a lot of fun."

Longshot Inge seemed poised for a major upset leading by 1-1/2 lengths through five furlongs in :58.03. But the 36-1 shot finally gave way late as Latonka blew by and favored Be Vewy Vewy Quiet (by Silent Name) plugged on for second money, three-quarters of a length before the pacemaker.

McClachrie  also is the co-breeder of Latonka along with Gayle Bosscher. Both are part of the ownership group along with McClachrie’s husband, Shale Wagman, and Howard Rubin. He is the second stakes winner by Signature Red, Canada's top Second Crop sire of 2017 after leading all First Crop sires in 2016.
