Stronach Stables Silent Poet Pens Vice Regent S. Victory

Stronach Stables Silent Name son Silent Poet, favored at 7-5, came through loud and clear when scoring by a measured length in Sunday’s $100,000 Vice Regent Stakes for Ontario-sired three-year-olds at Woodbine.



Ridden by Gary Boulanger and conditioned by Nick Gonzalez, Silent Poet turned back a couple of challenges in the stretch run to prevail in the good time of 1:33.74 for the one-mile turf race, which attracted a field of seven.

“He’s a really neat little horse,” said Gary Boulanger, who was recording his 11th stakes win of the meeting aboard the Adena Springs homebred. “He kind of does whatever I ask him to do. He responds when I ask him. He kind of gets out front and he spurts then he’ll wait, he’ll spurt then he’ll wait. He’s a nice, fun horse to ride. Nick’s done a tremendous job with him, it’s a pleasure to ride him.”

Be Vewy Vewy Quiet was first to show in the Vice Regent but dropped back to third as Silver Sheriff got the opening quarter of :23.63 and the half in :46.88 while shadowed by Silent Poet.

Royal Laser, (by Giant Gizmo) who had raced on the inside throughout as the 5-2 second choice, made a stretch bid but came up short while finishing a clear second. Another Silent Name son Carmenootz, swung out widest for the stretch run and finished well to be third to complete the Adena Springs North triactor.

Silent Poet was recording his third turf win. His only unplaced effort in seven career starts was in the Queen’s Plate, which was just his fourth career outing and his first beyond seven furlongs. “We got a little aggressive when we tried the Queen’s Plate, but it didn’t hurt him one little bit and the horse is simple, easy to train,” said Gonzalez. 

Silent Poet was bred by Adena Springs in Ontario out of the Ghostzapper daughter Cara Bella. Ghostzapper is now the damsire of 15 blacktype winners, a sparkling 8.2% from starters, including 2018 Triple Crown hero Justify.

Silent Poet is the 6th worldwide Stakes winner in 2018 by Silent Name who ranks #1 in Canada by blacktype winners and progeny earnings.

Updated July 9, 2018

Mr. Prospector-influenced mares have always been obvious targets for Silent Name and he’s come through with 12 stakes winners and eight additional stakes-placed runners out of such dams. 

2017 2yo SW Clickity Clack is out of a mare by Two Punch while the SWs Hopping Not Hoping and Silent Serenity show the Mr. Prospector son Conquistador Cielo in their second damlines.

SW Lokinforpursemonee is out of a mare by the Mr. Prospector stallion Porto Foricos, who is bred on the Mr. Prospector/Nureyev cross similar to the Afleet stallion Northern Afleet. Silent Name already has a stakes-placed runner on his resume out of a mare by Rizzi, a son of Afleet and mares by the Northern Afleet son Afleet Alex are also promising for Silent Name.

Silent Name has sired additional stakes winners out of mares by Distorted Humor (by Forty Niner), Numerous and Not For Love. All three of these broodmare sires are too bred on the Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer cross (like Porto Foricos). 

Distorted Humor is bred Mr. Prospector over Danzig (Silent Name's maternal grandsire) and the dam of G3W No Silent also shows these influences. He’s out of a mare by War Chant, by Danzig, with a second dam by Mr. Prospector. No Silent and SW Crysta’s Court are among Silent Name’s three stakes winners (and two additional SP runners) that are inbred to Danzig. There are over 500-plus blacktype winners that show a Danzig double within four generations. War Front is another bred Danzig/Mr. Prospector and his daughters and granddaughters should go well with Silent Name as should mares by Exchange Rate (Danzig/Seeking the Gold). 

Silent Name has shown a strong affinity for Storm Cat-line mares. SW Hopping Not Hoping is out of a mare by Harlan’s Holiday, by the Storm Cat son Harlan. She joins the Silent Name stakes winners Valiant Cat (dam by Storm Cat) and G2W/G1SP Fanticola (dam by Tabasco Cat). Storm Cat is also the sire of the second dam of 2017 2yo SW Clickity Clack.

Daughters and granddaughters of Street Cry (by Machiavellian) are very interesting for Silent Name. Sunday Silence over Machiavellian has produced at least eight stakes winners, six group/graded and two Group 1 winners, including Dubai World Cup (G1) champion Victoire Pisa. Street Cry is also a source of Never Bend (grandsire of his second dam), an influence we find in six Silent Name stakes winners, half of them winners at the Grade/Group level. Two 2017 SP runners by Silent Name also show Never Bend in their lineage. Sources of Street Cry include his sons Street Sense, Street Boss and former Canadian stallion Victor's Cry.

Northern Dancer’s influence is found in about two-thirds of the stakes horses sired by Silent Name. We see Nijinsky II in the lineage of SWs Pyrite Mountain and San Nicola Thunder as well as 2017 2yo SW Be Vewy Vewy Quiet. The Minstrel, a close relative of Nijinsky II, is found in the pedigree of two more stakes horses, including SW Viuva Rica. Lyphard is found in the pedigrees of a quintet of Silent Name stakes horses, including G2W/MG1SP Silentio and SW Silent Legacy.

Silentio is an example of Silent Name’s affinity for the Seattle Slew broodmare line. He's is out of a mare by Seattle Slew’s best son A. P. Indy while Be Vewy Vewy Quiet is out of a mare by the A. P. Indy stallion Malibu Moon. Silent Serenity is out of a daughter by another Seattle Slew champion son, Capote, who's also found in the pedigree of Clickity Clack.

Silent Name has sired five stakes winners, including a pair of 2017 juvenile stakes winners, plus three additional stakes horses out of mares carrying the Caro influence. SW/G1SP Mr. Online is out of a mare by the Caro grandson Alphabet Soup (by Cozzene) while the dams of four other stakes horses show a daughter of Caro in their pedigrees. This makes mares showing Unbridled’s Song and Maria’s Mon, both out of Caro mares, very interesting for Silent Name. 2017 2YO SP Silent Sting is out of a mare by the Maria’s Mon son Monarchos and daughters of Super Saver, by Maria’s Mon out of an A. P. Indy mare, certainly merit consideration.
