Summer Sunday Caps Huge Weekend for Silent Name

The timing couldn’t have been more perfect for Summer Sunday to pick up her first stakes victory....

The timing couldn’t have been more perfect for Summer Sunday to pick up her first stakes victory. A beautiful summer Sunday afternoon at Woodbine Racetrack was the scene of her $125,000 Nandi Stakes conquest in which she defeated a field of two-year-old Ontario-sired fillies.

Watch the Nandi Stakes

Jockey Jesse Campbell rode the undefeated Silent Name-Dancing Allstar filly to victory for trainer Simon Stuart and owners Anne and William Scott. Bred by Trinity West Stables, Summer Sunday was the co-sales topper at last year's CTHS Canadian Preferred Yearling sale.

She is the second Silent Name juvenile stakes winner on the weekend. Be Vewy Vewy Quiet, also unbeaten, conquered the Clarendon S. on Woodbine's Saturday card.

Summer Sunday left from post six and fought with Shady Well Stakes starter Miss Danielle (Emma-Jayne Wilson) for the lead through fractions of :22.36 and :45.50 before taking charge down the stretch to score in 1:04.49 over five and a half furlongs on the Tapeta. The Mark Casse-trained Rosemere (Patrick Husbands) made a run for Summer Sunday late and finished three-quarters of a length behind the winner in her career debut while Miss Danielle held on for third in a photo finish with Belmont shipper She’s the Berries (David Moran).

“She won handily her first time out [on July 15]. I worked her once before she ran and I loved her,” said Campbell, who picked off a couple of other fillies in the Nandi to ride Summer Sunday. “She’s got a great head on her and talent to boot so that can go a long ways. It’s always nice to win stakes, but when you get to win for your good friends – Stuart’s a good friend of mine – it’s extra special.”

Sent postward as the 2-1 favourite following her winning career debut last month, Summer Sunday paid $6, $3.60 and $2.70 across the board.

“I think she’s continuing to advance forward,” said Simon. “Every week she seems like a little bit better filly. She really is just a dream horse to train and she’s got such a good head on her and she does what you ask of her so we haven’t been very hard on her. We were trying to look at the big picture of the full career so I think she’s got a lot of good things in front of her still.”

Simon indicated that the filly’s next assignment is expected to be the Muskoka Stakes on August 30.

Silent Name is showing a growing affinity for Storm Cat-line mares. His 2016 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).

Mr. Prospector-influenced mares have always been obvious targets for Silent Name and he’s come through with nine stakes winners and six additional stakes-placed runners out of such dams. 2016 SW Hopping Not Hoping and SW Silent Serenity show the Mr. Prospector son Conquistador Cielo in their second damlines.

Another 2016 SW, Lokinforpursemonee, is out of a mare by the Mr. Prospector stallion Porto Foricos, who is bred on the Mr. Prospector/Nureyev cross. This opens the door for mares by the Afleet stallion Northern Afleet and his son Afleet Alex. Silent Name already has a stakes-placed runner on his resume out of a mare by Rizzi, a son of Afleet.

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 and the dam of G3W No Silent and also shows these influences. The Eddie D. S. winner is out of a mare by War Chant, by Danzig, with a second dam by Mr. Prospector. 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). 

No Silent and SWs Crysta’s Court and Summer Sunday are among Silent Name’s four stakes horses that are inbred to Danzig and they are among the 400-plus blacktype winners that show a Danzig double so far within four generations

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 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.

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 Pyrite Mountain and SW San Nicola Thunder as well as SP County Lineman. 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 2017 juvenile SW Be Vewy Vewy Quiet is out of a mare by the A. P. Indy stallion Malibu Moon. SW Silent Serenity and SP Silent Eagle are out of mares by another Seattle Slew champion son, Capote, while the second dam of SW Mr. Online is a granddaughter of Seattle Slew.

Silent Name has sired a quartet of stakes winners and two additional stakes horses out of mares carrying the Caro influence. This group includes SW/G1SP Mr. Online out of a mare by the Caro grandson Alphabet Soup (by Cozzene).
