Bear's Chill heats up Woodbine in the $125,000 Kenora S.
Monday, September 03, 2012
Bear's Chill took advantage of a quick early pace to win the $125,000 Kenora S. Monday at Woodbine. The 4-year-old bay son of Artie Schiller is the seventh stakes winner this year for his sire, who ranks in the top 15 on the third-crop sire list.

Bear's Chill sat off lively splits of :21.91 and :44.97 set by Crowns Dynasty and Red Eagle, then went very wide on the turn to make his move on the front-runners. Patrick Husbands kept his mount to the task and he struck the front in deep stretch and pulled away to a 1 1/2-length win. The final time for the six furlongs on the Polytrack was 1:11.42.

"The one thing about Patrick, he knows where to put them and where to go," said trainer Sid Attard. "He had the horse, too."

"(Owner) Lou (Tucci) calls the shots," said Attard. "He called me and told me to look at this horse. 'You like him, go for it. You don't, pass.' The horse has always looked good. I do what he tells me."

Bear's Chill banked $75,000 in victory, improving his record to four wins and two seconds from 11 lifetime starts, earning $288,354.

The colt, who won the $150,000 Queenston S. in 2011, was bred in Ontario by Glenview Stables Ltd. from the stakes-winning mare Silver Nithi.
