Whitehall wins Stakes


Added 10 July 2020


The combination of Deep Explorer and red hot jockey Antonio Whitehall justified favouritism in the R.J. Speer Stakes, securing their second consecutive Stakes victory this season at Assiniboia Downs in Canada on Wednesday evening.

This win followed success for the seven-year-old chestnut gelding who was also victorious on June 29, and was part of another treble for Whitehall, who celebrated two other wins on Stevie Mac and Commander McDivitt.

Similar to his success in the Free Press Stakes on June 17, Deep Explorer was settled in the middle of the field before surging on the outside to get home by half length.

Exhibiting great confidence in Deep Explorer’s ability, Whitehall allowed Finally Gottcha, Man Of Blues and Mr Dazzle to set the pace in the seven and a half furlong event. (LY)
