VIDEO: Dettori guides Joshua Tree to victory

Frankie Dettori is one of the best jockeys in the world and one of the most effective "big race" riders you will ever find. And while he's likely on the latter side of his career he's still extremely dangerous riding a talented horse in a race with prestige and a big purse.

In Sunday's Grade 1 Pattison Canadian International Stakes at Woodbine, Dettori took the 2010 International winner Joshua Tree (IRE) right to the front of the field upon leaving the starting gate. From there, Frankie simply applied the breaks and set his mount on cruise control, slowing the pace to a wonderfully consistent stroll all the way around the course. Joshua Tree kicked out internal splits of 25.68, 25.86, 25.57 and 25.88 through the first mile of the race, and then grinded the last half mile in an almost carbon-copy 50.88.

According to the Trakus data, Joshua Tree ran the final 1/16th of a mile is a brisk 5.13. Runner-up Dandino (GB) closed in a race-best 4.96 and could have been very dangerous had Joshua Tree been forced to work harder through the first mile.

Below is the video replay from the Woodbine YouTube page.


Canadian Int'l: Joshua Tree Alone On The Lead

Joshua Tree (IRE) and Frankie Dettori lead every step of the way to win the Grade 1 Pattison Canadian International Stakes at Woodbine. Joshua Tree broke well and set the early pace in moderate splits through the first half mile over ground rated GOOD at Woodbine. In the third quarter, Dettori was able to milk out another pedestrian split which put serious pressure on his rivals to run down the lone speed. Favorite Imperial Monarch tracked the leader in fourth but had no response when it came time to run down the leader in the stretch.

Dandino (GB) and Forte Dei Marmi (GB) closed well from the back to grab the second and third positions but Joshua Tree and Dettori had their rivals measured in the final strides.

If you needed an exhibit as to why Frankie Dettori remains one of the top riders in the game, just watch him milk Joshua Tree all the way around the Woodbine turf course.

Joshua Tree is a five-year-old son of Montjeu (IRE) out of a Grand Lodge mare (Mandeira Mist (IRE), trained by Marco Botti. He was third to Ofevre (JPN) in the G2-Prix Foy in his last start and won the G2-Prix Kergorlay at Deauville two races back.

EP Taylor: Siyouma Cruises Home

Siyouma (IRE) produced a strong kick in the final quarter mile to hold off long shot 2-Pagera (FR) to win the Grade 1 E.P. Taylor Stakes at Woodbine. Pagera held on to finish second while 5-Dream Peace (IRE) finished 3rd to round out an all Euro trifecta.

Siyouma raced just a few lengths off the lead through soft opening fractions, found racing room between horses at the top of the stretch and powered home to win by almost two lengths at the wire. Pagera also raced closed to the lead in the early stages but couldn't keep up with the winner when it came time to roll towards the juge.

Sioyouma is a four-year-old filly by Medicean (GB) out of a Danehill mare (Sichilla (IRE), trained by Francois Doumen, ridden by Gerald Mosse and owned by Robert Jeffcock. Siyouma's victory in the E.P. Tayor is her second consecutive top-level win after scoring in the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket in her last start.

Nearctic Stakes: Next Question Leads All The Way

Next Question and Ramon Domiguez held on in the final 100 yards to win the Grade 1 Nearctic Stakes in gate to wire fashion at odds of 15/1. Running over a turf course raced at GOOD at Woodbine, Next Question was able to secure though solid but sane early fractions and just kept running once he hit the stretch drive. Filly Night Carnation (GB) made a strong run on the rail to grab second, while Bear Tough Tiger rounded out the trifecta (or triactor for those north of the boarder).

With the win in the Nearctic, Next Question has secured a spot in the 2012 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita.

Next Question is a four-year-old gelding by Stormy Atlantic out of a Slew City Slew mare (Seattle Stardust) trained by Michael Trombetter and owned by Three Diamonds Farm. This is his first graded stakes victory after competing at the state-bred allowance and optional claiming levels in New York this summer.
