Henry S. Witt, Jr.’s Mano Dura, trained by Jerry Gourneau and ridden by Antonio Whitehall  the winner of the 75th Manitoba Derby has the only shot at being the first winner of the newly created Western Canadian Triple Crown.

Mano Dura is a bit of a throwback as he already has 4 wins, 5 seconds and a third in 14 lifetime starts.

Waiting in the wings is Adam Ference and Bill Dory’s Chase the Chaos (Astern {Aus}) who has been steadily working at Century Mile for the 94th running of the Canadian Derby.
