The CTHS Alberta 2017 “Night of Champions” on Saturday, May 19th in the Alberta Ballroom at the Chateau Lacombe, Edmonton will feature a tribute to Mr. Lynn Chouinard, one of our industry champions.
Sal’s always looking for a way to promote the province of Alberta in thoroughbred racing. One of Sal’s normal Kentucky Derby and major races Alberta connections are the sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons of Harlan whose dam Country Romance raced for Hal Yerxa’s CFCW Farms.
If you go way back down the country line in Into Mischief’s pedigree another very good Alberta racehorse appears, Hal Yerxa’s Country Romance who won Northlands Park’s Rundle Heights Handicap, Birdcatcher Stakes and Kindergarten Handicap and Stampede Park’s Stampede Futurity and Alberta Thoroughbred Horse Society Stakes.
Depending on the defections one or two Into Mischiefs could be in the starting gate Saturday May 2, 2018. Audible is not only a son of Into Mischief, but his dame Blue Devil Bel is by Gilded Time who stood at Lynn Chouinard’s Bar None Ranches. Sal’s partial to the Damascus line when the clouds open up.
Sal says that Gilded Time was a superlative sprinter, Sal says that speed is speed and Sal says before you leave Audible out of your Derby ticket check the bottom half of Gilded Time’s pedigree for stamina influences.
