By: SPORTS NETWORK
Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Deceptive Vision, ridden by Eurico Rosa da Silva, stalked the pace and drew away down the stretch to win Sunday's $300,000 Canadian Stakes at Woodbine.
The 4-year-old filly, trained by Malcolm Pierce, raced her way into this year's Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf with the victory in just her seventh career start.
Owned by the legendary Sam-Son Farm, Deceptive Vision was racing fifth in the 10-horse field of fillies and mares going 1 1/8 miles over the E. P. Taylor turf course. The daughter of A.P. Indy moved into third at the top of the stretch as she joined pacesetter La Tia for the lead.
Deceptive Vision, the 9-2 third pick, easily passed La Tia down the stretch and galloped to a 2 1/2-length victory over Royal Fury with La Tia holding on to third.
Finishing fourth was Meri Shika followed by Dance Again, Industrial Policy, Savvy Hester, Skylander Girl and Solid Appeal. Queen's Plate winner Lexie Lou went off as the 3-2 favorite, but after racing near the lead was eased down the stretch.
The time for the Canadian Stakes on a good turf course was 1:47.80.
Deceptive Vision notched her first stakes victory and earned $180,000. The filly has won four of seven career starts for $334,441.
Back in May, Deceptive Vision was third to Solid Appeal in Woodbine's Nassau Stakes and was second in the track's Dance Smartly on July 6.
Deceptive Vision paid $11.30, $6.90 and $4.50. Royal Fury returned $19.00 and $9.70, and La Tia paid $4.80 to show.
