Gentlemen...Gentlemen...Put Your Hands Together...

....for the beautiful Canadian Ballet!!

The boys from Obviously NY Stables (ONY), who obviously have a good sense of humor and superb naming skills, are still red hot with a victory today in the Lena Spencer Stakes. Canadian Ballet ($7.20) went a half in 44.2 and finished the 5.5f turf sprint in 1:01.57 holding off the late charging efforts of Sly Storm and the favorite Smart and Fancy. The Linda Rice (she's on fire!) trained filly won her connections $44,700, with Alan Garcia in the irons. The City Zip filly was coming out of a second place finish in the Grade 3 Royal North Stakes at Woodbine last month, the day after Mother Russia's big victory at the Spa.

ONY sends Mother Russia back out on Saturday in the Peerless Springs S. for 3yo going a mile over the inner turf course, looking for back to back non-graded stakes wins at venerable Saratoga Race Course. One of the ONY partners sent me a note today encouraging me to sneak down the great NYS Thruway an hour to Finger Lakes Race Track to see Hook Me Up run on Labor Day in the $150K Lady Finger Stakes. I may not be able to sneak down the Thruway, but I may find some time to make a wager on these guys. They're as hot as you can get.

To expand on Canadian Ballet's's a little funny (warning: rated NC-17) from whence the name surfaced (this video was approved by the Space Gal)...
