Silent Name's 2YO Cindervella Home First in South Ocean S.

Cindervella, under leading rider Eurico Rosa da Silva, was full of run late as she swept by her rivals in the last jumps to break her maiden in style in the $125,000 South Ocean Stakes, Saturday at Woodbine.

Watch the South Ocean Stakes

The two-year-old filly is the third juvenile stakes winner this by the Adena Springs North stallion Silent Name, who ranks as Canada's clear #1 Juvenile Sire in 2016.

Trained by Mike DePaulo for owners Frank Annecchini and Rocco D’Alimonte, Cindervella came into the 1 1/16-mile event for Ontario-sired juvenile fillies off a fourth-place finish in the 6 ½-furlong OLG Muskoka Stakes on August 31.

In the South Ocean, it was Evil Woman who set the early pace with Nineteen Sixteen and Nerve Line keeping close tabs through an opening quarter in :24.61.

Evil Woman was still control after a half-mile timed in :48.62, but had company as the field rounded the turn for home. Even-money favourite Princess Bullet and Crumlin Queen pulled the trigger along the inside, while Cindervella, hoping the clock wouldn’t strike midnight, was flying on the outside, getting up to win by a half-length.

Crumlin Queen nosed out Princess Bullet for runner-up honours. Evil Woman was fourth.

Cindervella covered 1 1/16-miles in 1:44.81.

"She ran very well,” said da Silva, who recorded five wins on the card. “I was concerned because she was a little nervous behind the gate and when she broke, she was very aggressive. But, she was able to relax and she was waiting for the green light. When you go two turns, I think the most important thing is for the horse to relax. If the horse can relax, it doesn’t matter where you are. I was going to take her outside because I had so much horse and she kicked in so strong."

For DePaulo, in the midst of another fine season with his ninth Woodbine stakes score, it was a pleasing result from a two-year-old who could be on track to contest some of the biggest three-year-old filly races on the 2017 Woodbine calendar.

"This filly – we liked her – we bought her in the (CTHS September) Yearling Sale," noted the veteran conditioner. “We knew she could run. We’re just happy it worked out today. We were hoping she’d like the two turns and it looks like she did.

Updated October 15, 2016

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 five 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 also shows these influences. He’s 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 SW Crysta’s Court are among Silent Name’s three 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. SW Silent Serenity and SP Silent Eagle are out of mare 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 trio 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).
