From 'Revenge' To 'Captain America'

When Port Perry, Ontario's Emily Van Camp earned the lead role on ABC's ‘Revenge’ in 2011, she probably didn't realize that she would become the source of new names for the family's Standardbred racehorses.

In honour of her new TV role, Emily's father, Robert, owner of Brooks Feed, and co-breeder Windsun Farms, named their homebred Kadabra colt Windsun Revenge shortly after his birth in October 2011. That trotter has gone on to become a mainstay on the Woodbine Entertainment Group circuit, winning multiple Preferred events and recently competing in the final of the Maple Leaf Trot for Van Camp and co-owner/trainer Jeff Durham of Omemee, Ont.

Now it's Emily's father and her Uncle Paul who are hoping that the luck continues with naming their horses after Emily's Hollywood exploits.

In 2014, Emily starred in Marvel's ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ as Sharon Carter (also known as Agent 13).

In 2016, she was at it again, as Agent 13 in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’

And now, selling as Hip # 75 in this year's Forest City Yearling Sale on October 23, is the Van Camp's Majestic Son filly, Agent Thirteen.

The filly, according to Paul Van Camp, is much like Emily's character, "strong, smart and very athletic."

As far as bloodlines go, she has recent Canadian Horse of the Year winners on both sides of her pedigree. Her sire, Majestic Son, was Canada's Horse of the Year in 2006, while her dam is a half-sister to 2011 Horse of the Year, San Pail.
