Footstepsinthesand Adds Canada Gr2
At Woodbine in Canada, Gr1-winning former shuttler Footstepsinthesand (Giant's Causeway-Glatisant, by Rainbow Quest) added a group success when 5YO French-bred mare Minakshi (Footstepsinthesand-Maria De La Luz, by Machiavellian) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Michael Matz in the US$290,000 Gr2 Canadian Stakes (9 furlongs) for 3YO+ f&m, over 4YO mare Colonial Flag (Pleasant Tap-Silk n' Sapphire, by Smart Strike) & 6YO mare Moment Of Majesty (Saint Liam-Lady Indy, by A.P. Indy). This was Minakshi's maiden stakes victory and took her record to 5 wins & 5 placings (including the Gr2 Sheepshead Bay Stakes at Belmont) from 18 starts.
