My Conquestadory bests the boys in the Grade 2 Summer S. to top huge day for Artie Schiller
Sunday, September 15, 2013
A stellar victory in the $212,800 Summer S. Saturday at Woodbine has earned the 2-year-old daughter of Artie Schiller My Conquestadory a free trip to the Breeders' Cup this November and was the highlight of the day for her sire, whose Hop the Six took the $75,000 Small Wonder S. and also had stakes placed horse on Saturday.

The grassy one-mile Summer S. is an automatic qualifier for a position in the starting gate for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita on Nov. 1.

With the daunting task of making her debut in a stake and facing colts My Conquestadory nevertheless proved her mettle, taking command at the three-sixteenths pole under rider Eurico Rosa da Silva and opening up in the stretch to win by 3 1/4-lengths.

The winner stopped the clock in 1:34.81, which was more than a second faster than the Grade 2 Natalma, for 2-year-old fillies,earlier on the card.

"I didn't think about losing the race. It never came to my mind that she could be beat," said a supremely confident da Silva. "I had great confidence in her and the whole (Casse) team said how nice she is. She's a great filly."

Trained by Mark Casse for Ernie Semersky and Dory Newell's Conquest Stables LLC, My Conquestadory banked $120,000 in victory. Conquest acquired the filly for $240,000 out of the 2013 OBS Select 2-year-old sale in Florida this March.

Artie's Schiller Xbalanque got his first stakes placing of his career on Saturday at Kentucky Downs, beaten just a half-length in the $150,000 Kentucky Downs Turf Dash. Owned by Tim Reinert, the bay 4-year-old is an excellent 3-3-1 in just eight lifetime starts.
