Trainer Murray Brethour will be busy at Kawartha Downs as he sends out four horses from his stable, which he will also drive, in addition to picking up a catch drive on the 10 race program.
His first starter comes in the fourth race when his two-year-old Bettors Delight colt Pay The Dos will make his first lifetime start after a pair of qualifiers. Murray shares ownership of the colt with John Fleischman, Dean Campbell and Mark Bloch. He is the first foal of the $559,000 winner Honky Tonk Woman.
In the next race Murray’s three-year-old filly Seven Angels will be making her fourth career outing. Unraced last year at two, the Cheyenne Rei miss owned by Heather Young, qualified at KD last month but has made her three outings to date at Georgian Downs.
Murray’s right back in the sixth with another three-year-old pacing filly, this one a daughter of Camluck owned by breeder Northfields Farm of Meaford named Northern Prima. The filly will be looking for her second straight win at the Frasereville oval having won last week in a maiden breaking 1:57.1. The filly is the second foal of million dollar winner Southwind Madonna.
In the eighth race Murray picks up a catch drive aboard See R Chin Win who is also looking for her second straight victory at KD. A seven-year-old trotting mare owned by Shawn Moscrop and trained by Ronda Markle, See R Chin Win has a win and a second in five starts so far this year.
Murray’s maroon and gold silks will next be seen in the ninth race where he’ll drive a relative newcomer to his barn, the six-year-old pacing gelding Chosen Hombre who he started training in late June. Brian Scott bred and owns the Royal Mattjesty son.
Racing gets underway at 7 p.m. Saturday at Kawartha. Saturday’s program is available here.
