Art Instructor, a well bred two-year-old pacing filly from the Murray Brethour stable, made her first lifetime starts at Kawartha Downs earlier this summer. Brethour qualified the daughter of Art Major at the Fraserville oval twice before she made her racing debut at Georgian Downs.

Since that time she’s made three starts, one at Mohawk and two at Georgian, winning her most recent outing at the latter track in 1:57. Brethour shares ownership with Kevin McKinlay of Holland Landing, Ontario and Doug Millard of Woodstock who also bred the filly with Spring Haven Farm of Ohio.

Art Instructor is a full sister to Art Professor, a winner of more than $609,000 during his racing career for trainer Ben Wallace. He’s now been retired and is standing stud in England. His baby sister, whose career is just getting started, has drawn post five in Kawartha’s second race on Saturday night.

Art Instructor is the only two-year-old in the field which also includes likely favourite State News, a three-year-old son of Mach Three who has made three lifetime starts, all at Kawartha, and won two and finished second by a neck in the other.

The action starts at 7 p.m. Saturday night.
