TORONTO, ON – Norseman Racing Stable’s Dotted Line concluded his two-year-old season with an exclamation point as he captured the $100,000 Kingarvie Stakes on Wednesday evening at Woodbine Racetrack.
The homebred Signature Red-Springledge gelding, who is expected to be targeting the Queen’s Plate next year, closed out his juvenile campaign with three wins in a row, including back-to-back stakes scores in rein to Justin Stein.
Following his seven-furlong Frost King triumph last month for trainer Sid Attard, Dotted Line was back competing over the 1-1/16-mile distance that he previously conquered during his maiden-breaking victory in mid-October.
Sent postward as the 3-5 favourite, Dotted Line pressured The Reign Man on top all the way into the final turn, setting fractions of :25.13, :49.60 and 1:13.71. Dotted Line had his rival collared at the top of the stretch and opened up 2-1/4 lengths down the lane before hitting the wire in 1:45.65. He paid $3.40 to win. Truebelieve got up for second-place over The Reign Man.
“I thought we’d be forwardly placed,” said Stein of his racing strategy today. “I rode the three-horse [The Reign Man] last time [winning his career-debut on November 10] and I kind of thought that he’d show a little bit of speed so I watched him. This horse was really keen. He’s just a good horse. He wanted to do it today and he likes to win.”
“He’s been really good, he’s been improving and I loved the way he rode him today,” said Attard. “He broke in front, he saw the horse go in front and I saw him looking, looking. He didn’t move until he had to, when he asked him to run. He’s a really nice horse.”
Dotted Line, a sibling to stakes winners Signature Spring and Generous Touch (by Philanthropist), is now three-for-five lifetime. The lion’s share of the purse boosted his earnings to six figures.
Agnelli, Dancers Ghost, Baddest Blues and Lakeside Park completed the order of finish while Artiesattheparty was eased up in the stretch and walked off.
