Unbridled's Song Adds Canada Gr3
In Canada, former Arrowfield Stud shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) added a graded-stakes success when 4YO mare Embur's Song (Unbridled's Song-Embur Sunshine, by Bold Ruckus) scored a 3.5-lengths victory in the C$182,000 Gr3 Hendrie Handicap (6.5 furlongs on all-weather) for mares 4YO & up at Woodbine in Toronto. Embur's Song (ridden by Patrick Husbands for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated 5YO mare Ariana D (Rock Slide-Derby Tie, by Black Tie Affair) & US-bred fellow 4YO mare Wildcat Marie (Wildcat Heir-Miss Rachel Marie, by Wild Rush). At her previous start, Embur's Song (a US$170,000 yearling at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale) broke the track record (clocking 1min 41.6sec) in winning April's US Gr3 Doubledogdare Stakes (8.5 furlongs on all-weather) at Keeneland in Kentucky. Overall she now boasts 4 wins & 2 placings (in both 2010's Canadian Listed Bison City Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Woodbine & Listed Woodbine Oaks over 9 furlongs) from 8 starts for US$368,816 earnings.
