Silent Sonet is Silent Name's Newest Stakes Winner

Silent Sonet, a troubled third in her last start, rewarded the faith of  her backers here...

The Silent Name filly Silent Sonet, a troubled third in her last start, rewarded the faith of  her backers here Sunday with an emphatic 6 ¼-length victory in the $125,000 La Prevoyante Stakes.

Watch the La Prevoyante Stakes

The La Prevoyante a one-mile turf race for Ontario-sired 3-year-old fillies, attracted a field of eight and Silver Sonet ruled as the 1-2 favorite under new rider Eurico Rosa da Silva.

“I was very confident that my horse was going to run very big,” said Da Silva, who had become acquainted with Silent Sonet when he breezed her for trainer Nick Gonzalez nine days ago.

Listenlindalisten, who had upset Silent Sonet when the two last met in the off-the-turf seven-furlong Passing Mood here Aug. 2, was looking for her third consecutive stakes win and was sent to the front from her inside post.

Da Silva was taking no chances, however, and never let Listenlindalisten and jockey Patrick Husbands shake loose as he and Silent Sonet  tracked intently from second place.

 “I was waiting to see what Patrick was going to do,” said Da Silva. “We ended up in the perfect position.”

Listenlindalisten, the 3-1 second choice, carved out a half in :23.50 while one length in front and a half in :46.34 with a half-length advantage.

Hailey’s Prize and Cindervella raced within striking position heading into the far turn with the rest of the field well back.

Turning into the stretch, Hailey’s Prize was attempting to launch a bid from the outside but Da Silva gave Silver Sonet her head and it was all over but the shouting.

“In the turn, my horse was just galloping,” said Da Silva, who also won Saturday’s Ontario Debutante and is the leading rider in all categories including 22 stakes victories.

“When I asked her, she just broke from there.”

Silent Sonet is homebred who races for owner Ivan Dalos, did not see action at 2 and the La Prevoyante was her third win from five outings.

“She’s a big filly,” said Dalos. “I thought she was too big to be a 2-year-old runner. We just took it easy, knowing she was going to be a nice 3-year-old, and this is what she turned out to be.”

Silent Sonet is the fourth 2017 blacktype winner making him Canada's #1 sire of blacktype winners this year. His also the runaway leading juvenile sire in Canada for the second year in a row.

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).
