Blessed Two rallies from last to first in Simcoe
Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Derek A. Chin’s Blessed Two circled a field of 10 two-year-old colts and geldings to win the $175,000 OLG Simcoe Stakes presented by Samuel, Son & Co. Limited., on Wednesday night at Woodbine.

 

With Gary Boulanger aboard for trainer Kevin Attard, Blessed Two was a distant last early on but got up in time to collar late leader The Newfie Express at the wire in 1:19.99 for 6-1/2 furlongs.

 

“We were kind of worried. What happened to the horse?” said Chin of watching the Souper Speedy colt gap the field down the backside.

 

“But I’m in the clouds right now,” he said from the winner’s circle. “Fantastic.”

 

Bred by Jennifer S. Leuty, Blessed Two is the first foal out of the stakes-placed Bold Executive mare Birsay. He was purchased for $65,000 from last year’s Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society Yearling Sale.
