Overlooked at long odds here and one of two unraced juvenile fillies in the line up, El Bayern became her GI Breeders' Cup Classic-winning sire's first black-type winner in the Muskoka S. on Sunday. Awkwardly away, she looked like she was spinning her wheels while dead last by several lengths for the first few furlongs. Asked for her bid with 2 ½ furlongs left to travel, she looped the field very wide out in the center of the track. Finding more as favored For My Elbi began to run out of steam, she swept by that foe to win going away, breaking her maiden and her black-type duck simultaneously.
Since foaling the winner, El Tara has a yearling colt by Silent Name (Jpn) and a filly of this year by Seattle Serenade. Under the third dam is Canadian Champion Sprinter and MGSW Apelia (Cool Victor), herself the dam of Canadian Champion Older Mare and MGSW Saoirse (Cure the Blues) and GII Adirondack S. victress More Happy (Vindication).
