TORONTO, ON – Live Oak Plantation homebred Souper Stonehenge denied 4-time defending champion Pink Lloyd from adding a fifth race title to his resume in Sunday’s $150,000 Jacques Cartier Stakes (G3) at Woodbine.

Souper Stonehenge broke from post 5 under Patrick Husbands as the 3/2 second choice and closely attended Readyforprimetime‘s early pace through opening fractions of :22.72 and :44.93.
Ranging up to take the lead as he exited the far turn, Souper Stonehenge left everyone in his dust before crossing _ lengths clear for his first career stakes score.
The Mark Casse trainee completed the 6-furlong fast synthetic sprint in 1:08.89.
“I rode him as the best horse in the race,” Husbands said. “I respect ‘The Boss.’ Any time you can beat Pink Lloyd at Woodbine Racetrack, especially sprinting, he’s the world-beater, he’s the champion here. So I knew it would take a real Pink Lloyd to beat this horse today.”
Pink Lloyd, the 6/5 favorite under new rider Daisuke Fukumoto (substituting for the injured Rafael Hernandez), could do no better than second as he chased the winner in vain.
Malibu Secret, Joker On Jack, Readyforprimetime, and Dixie’s Gamble completed the order of finish.
Souper Stonehenge’s win improved his overall record to 15-4-4-1 with $271,587 earned. The Florida-bred 5-year-old Speightstown gelding’s mark over the local synthetic is now 7-3-3-0.
“Going into this race, I breezed this horse about 4 times and I think he’s a world-beater at Woodbine,” Husbands said. “This horse is the real deal right now.”
Souper Stonehenge returned $5 to win and $2.70 to place. Pink Lloyd brought back $2.80 to place. There was no show betting.
