Graded Stakes Placing for Rail Hugger in Canadian Derby
RSS Feeds Sunday, September 27, 2020

One start after winning his second stakes, Hinkle Farms homebred Rail Hugger (3c o/o Hit Girl) finished third in the G3 Canadian Derby at Century Mile.

Stretching a quarter mile farther than he went last out, Rail Hugger was just a length from winning the graded stakes when closing strongly down the stretch. Jockey Shamaree Muir let the colt settle early on before starting to advance racing into the turn. Muir asked him for more in the stretch and he barreled down on the leaders but had to settle for a close third.

A $15,000 purchase by John Hansen from the Hinkle Farms consignment, Rail Hugger is out of Hinkle Farms homebred Hit Girl.
