Canbec Mustang Is A Class Act

He hasn't won a race in almost two years, but there's no denying Canbec Mustang's class.

With a runner-up finish in his most recent start at Sulky Quebec last weekend, the muscular 10-year-old son of JB Stena became one of the few Quebec-bred pacers to top $800,000 in career earnings, joining a short list that includes the likes of Tricky Tooshie and Power Park.

Sunday, he appears nicely spotted to end a 22-race drought, drawing the inside in a nine-horse field in Sulky Quebec's seventh race.

In his nine-year career, Canbec Mustang has 47 victories, nine of them in stakes. He was a force on the Quebec Sires Stakes circuit at two and three and a steady producer in the years that followed. He took his mark at Hippodrome de Montreal as an eight-year-old with a mile in 1:51.1. That was also the scene of his last victory in September of 2007.

The stallion is trained by Jean Tourigny for Quebec owners Tourmana Inc., Claude Hamel and Sylvain Richard.
