Fourth behind stablemate Conquest Daddyo (Scat Daddy) in the GII Summer S. over a sixteenth shorter at this venue Sept. 12, Conquest Enforcer was made the market leader to build on that experience stepping down to Ontario-bred company. The bay settled in a close-up fourth while saving ground against the hedge through the early going and began to wind up after six furlongs in 1:12.18. Full of run with nowhere to go in upper stretch, Conquest Enforcer was steered off the fence and split horses shortly thereafter, before bursting clear to romp by daylight over Butterfly Dance (Awesome Again). “We worked him about two months ago on the turf,” commented winning hoop Patrick Husbands. “I came back and said to [trainer] Mark [Casse], he's a pretty nice horse. But he never got a chance to get back on the turf [in training]. The last race, it was a soft, soft, soft turf and he was never comfortable. So, we just had to put that race behind. When we got the daylight today, he showed he was the best horse in the race. It's an honor and a pleasure to sit on good horses. They always make you smile.” Keen Victory has a yearling filly by Court Vision and foaled a filly by Successful Appeal in 2014. She was bred back to First Samurai this term.
