Killarney Hosts Manitoba Sires Stakes

Published: August 7, 2016 01:01 am EDT

After capturing the Manitoba Great Western Fair Stakes last weekend, three-year-old pacing colt Baylor Out returned to Killarney to add a $4,115 Golden Boy Stakes division to his credentials.

Marc Fillion's homebred Armbro Baylor-Alcars Xit colt advanced from third after the opening quarter and wore down pacesetter Heartland Eclipse (:31.1, 1:03, 1:33.4) en route to a five-length victory in 2:05. Western Favor rounded out the top three finishers.

Baylor Out has now won $10,767 in purses and six of his 11 career starts, with his Golden Boy victory a career-best clocking.

Undefeated three-year-old pacing filly Cordees Whitesocks converted off a pocket trip to win the $4,106 Silk Lace Stakes division in a personal-best mile timed in 2:06.1. Driven by Don Howlett, the Armbro Baylor-Andrea Cole Lynn filly defeated pacesetter Luvn The Life (:31.1, 1:02.3, 1:35.1) by three lengths, with Trishas Fancy finishing back in third.

Trainer Trevor Williams and Michael Williams share ownership of Cordees Whitesocks, a Lady Crocus Stakes winner a month ago in Glenboro who is perfect in three career starts so far in her debut season. Her earnings increased to $6,033.

The $3,120 Kindergarten Stakes for two-year-olds was a two-horse, non-wagering race with filly Reys N A Rocket leading through panels of :36.1, 1:08.3 and 1:41 on her way to a four-length win in 2:12.1 over stablemate Quarter To Noon. Richard and Janet Rey's winning homebred Mattarocket-Allamerican Orchid filly was driven by Michel Rey. The win was the first of her four-race career.
