CANADIAN BRED HOT HUMOR SELLS FOR $500,000
American owner Ernie Semersky wants a good Canadian-bred
“Ernie [Semersky] told me to buy a good Canadian-bred,” smiled Casse shortly after signing the ticket in the sales pavilion. “I was the on the phone with him. He said, “Is this one really good?” and I said, “Yeah, this one’s really good. ” I didn’t tell him what price, though, but I’m sure he’ll be fine with it.”
Topping the 2nd session of the October yearling sale at Fasig Tipton yesterday was a Canadian bred yearling colt bred by Stephen Di Iorio in Ontario and sold by Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms, agent.
The chestnut son of Distorted Humor is out of Annasan, the dam of A BIT O’ GOLD and Arco’s Gold and made a strong impression on Casse, who has brought Conquest Stables’ Ernie Semersky quickly into the limelight of thoroughbred racing.

FORTE DEI MARMI – Canadian Horse of the year on line for old timer
Not much is Canadian about FORTE DEI MARMI but he is trained by one of this country’s greats, Roger Attfield, and this guy has won three graded stakes in succession at Woodbine. Another big race and he should wrap up HORSE OF THE YEAR in Canada for 2013.
A little bay, he is a 7to by Selkirk and a four time winner in his 7 grass races at Woodbine in his career. He has come a long way since his debut in the summer of 1998 when he was 9th in a maiden race at Newmarket at 33 to 1 for trainer Luca Cumani.
He arrived in Attfield’s barn in September 2011 and in his 3rd race for the Canadian trainer, won an allowance race at Keeneland. He wwon a graded staes race last year but then started off 2013 is a big mess.
One of his races he pulled up (Keeneland in April) and was vanned off.
But he is 3 for 3 at Woodbine this year and looking to conquer the course once more on Sunday.
The German runners, owned by Gestut Karlshof, for Sunday’s big Pattison Canadian International day card arrived in Toronto from Frankfurt at approximately 8:20 p.m. Monday and were settled into their stalls at Woodbine at about 11 p.m.
Seismos, a German Group 1 winner, was accompanied on the trip by Kevin Gately in preparation for the $1 million, 1 ½-mile feature, while Samba Brazil, who will compete in the $500,000 E.P. Taylor Stakes for fillies and mares, came with Cilla Riese.
IMPROVING NOW WE CAN TO MAKE NORTH AMERICAN DEBUT
From May 25, 2012 through June 2, 2013, Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges’ Now We Can was unbeatable. Perfect in five starts at three French tracks, Saint-Cloud, Chantilly and Longchamp, the four-year-old son of Martillo was a top stayer over both turf and synthetic surfaces.
A slow starter, Now We Can went unraced as a two-year-old making his debut on May 3, 2012, in a one-mile turf maiden at Longchamp, finishing seventh over very soft going.
“He was a backward one,” acknowledged trainer Nicolas Clement, whose brother Christophe is a well-regarded conditioner in North America. “Now We Can made his first start as a three-year-old at Longchamp, but I got the distance wrong and he finished seventh.”
Despite the result, Clement knew he had a talented colt and brought Now We Can back three weeks later at Saint- Cloud at a more comfortable distance of 1 ½-miles and watched as the colt scored a two-length win at odds of 18-1.
Now, the colt will take his first trip abroad to start in Sunday’s $1-million Pattison Canadian International and Clement feels the bay is ready for another breakthrough on a turf course that often favours European form.
“This horse is good mentally so I don’t think travelling will take much out of him,” said Clement. “It’s a bit of a gamble to travel so far but we like the track, it’s European style and provided he travels well I look forward to a good performance.”
The four-year-old gets regular Thierry Thulliez, who is best known in North America for his ride aboard Domedriver in the 2002 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Arlington.
