Congrats Adds Canada Black-Type
In Canada, last year's US Champion 1st-Season sire & this season's new Vinery Stud shuttler Congrats (A.P.Indy-Praise, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success when US-bred daughter Portside (Congrats-Port Isabel, by Time To Explode) scored by a neck in the C$150,000 Listed Star Shoot Stakes (6 furlongs on all-weather) for 3YO fillies at Woodbine in Toronto. Portside (ridden by Emma-Jayne Wilson for trainer Barbara Minshall) defeated fellow US-breds Nina Fever (Borrego-Impact Now, by Major Impact) & Miss Inclined (Pulpit-Seoul, by Deputy Minister). Portside (a US$30,000 weanling at the 2008 Ocala Breeders October Sale & subsequently a US$87,000 2YO at the 2010 Ocala Breeders March Sale) took her record to 2 wins & 3 placings from 7 starts for C$149,744 earnings.
