The Minkster Looks to Remain Perfect in Grey


WoodbineMichael Burns

The Minkster (English Channel) looks to take his record to three-for-three in Woodbine's GIII Grey S. Sunday. Romping by 6 1/4 lengths in his career bow on the Woodbine turf Oct. 2, the bay took to a route of ground with ease, capturing the nine-furlong Coronation Futurity S. on the synthetic here four weeks later.

Kevin Attard sends out two here in Hicksy (Hootenanny) and Be Like Clint (Point of Entry). A dominant second-out graduate on the local main track Oct. 3, Hicksy captured the Display S. at this oval Oct. 30. Be Like Clint earned his diploma at third asking in an off-the-turfer here Sept. 26 and was second in a track-and-trip optional claimer Nov. 6.

God of Love (Cupid) is one of three from the Mark Casse barn in this event. He broke his maiden at second asking in the grassy Cup and Saucer S. here Oct. 10 and rallied to be fifth in the Coronation Futurity. The chestnut is joined by stablemates On Thin Ice (More Than Ready) and Stowaway (Gun Runner).
