Correction & Update on Buffalo Stake - By Darlene Wedge In last month’s news, the incorrect rider (Larren Delorme), trainer (Lorna Gray) and condition (1 mile two year old Manitoba bred fillies – actually was a straight two year old race) was reported for the 2009 Buffalo Stakes. Larren was the jockey and Lorna the trainer on Applicant who won the race but was disqualified by the Stewards. There’s A Place (Battle Cat – Black Teddie by Bold Executive) was declared the winner. Paddock host, Kirt Contois, commented that it seemed appropriate that Marvin Buffalo was the trainer of the winning horse in the Buffalo Stake; Tyrone Nelson was in the irons. There’s A Place is owned by Little Rock Acres (Clarence & Sue Marzolf) and bred by Mr. & Mrs. Clarence Marzolf. Interesting to note, that this the third Buffalo Stake win for Little Rock Acres - they also greeted Freida’s Blazer in the winner’s circle in 1986 and Lord Little Rock in 1989. An appeal has been launched into the steward’s decision by Right Attitude and Partners, the owners of Applicant. As of press time, the appeal has not been heard.

CTHS Sales Graduates Awarded Horse Blankets Any 2 or 3 year old Manitoba bred who is a graduate of the CTHS Yearling Stake is presented a horse blanket in the winner’s circle when they break their maiden. Fittingly, this year the winner of the Sales Stake broke his maiden while winning the race. Applicant (Where’s the Ring – Rondinella by War Deputy) was bred by Lorna B. Short and was bought out of the sale by Right Attitude and Partners (Barry, Scott and Wayne Anderson, Don Bell, Bob Crockett and Harvey Warner) who got a handsome return on their initial $800 investment. Applicant is trained by Lorna Gray and was ridden to victory by Larren Delorme. Bixette, a 3 year old filly, broke her maiden in the Gold Shrike Mile. She is bred, owned and trained by Guy Kling and was ridden by Alan Cuthbertson. Bixette was sired by Bixby Knolls out of Sampaguette by Sunbury.
