Two Milwaukee Brew Stakes Winners on Canadian Millions Card

08.30.2018 -

There were seven stakes events on Wednesday evening's Canadian Millions card at Woodbine and two of them were won by the progeny of Milwaukee Brew

Kingsport took the title in the Elgin Stakes with a front-running victory over the two-time defending champion Melmich, an Adena Springs-sold star who's now earned $968,619.

With Patrick Husbands in the irons Kingsport established the lead ahead of Thor’s Rocket into the clubhouse turn of the Elgin and set fractions of :28.32, :53.63 and 1:17.34 with Melmich, the 4-5 favorite, tracking in third and Spirit of Caledon dropping back to last in the compact field of four. After opening up on top turning for home, Kingsport held 1-1/2 lengths clear as Melmich, rallied on for second-place.



The Sid Attard trainee notched his second consecutive stakes victory, and seventh lifetime, for owners Goldmart Farms and Royal Laser Racing Inc., while boosting his bankroll over the $600,000. He was bred by Richard Moylan.

“He’s the type of horse that’s always vice versa — he likes to go long and he likes to go short — but the older he gets, he likes to run at horses,” said Husbands. “Today, he had everything his way and when I got by the half-mile, I set him down and I knew it would take a good horse to beat him from there. I had everything my way and he was just galloping. He’s just a lovely animal."

Two races later the Milwaukee Brew daughter Trini Brewnette got her picture taken after the $100,000 Algoma Stakes.

Trained by Kevin Attard, the five-year-old mare saved her best running for last under leading rider Eurico Rosa da Silva to capture the 1 1/16-mile event.

Trini Brewnette, who captured the South Ocean Stakes as a juvenile and placed in the Bison City Stakes at three has now earned $265,130, for owner Derek Chin. She was bred by Mr. & Mrs. Bud Malette & Trinity West Stables, Inc. out of the Millennium Allstar daughter Dancing Allstar. 

“She looked good. The groom told me she was working very well. When you get that kind of ride and don’t get into trouble at the top of the stretch, I thought she’d come home,” said Chin.
