Neepawa had itself a winning weekend and most of the community’s residents didn’t even know about it.

On Saturday, Aug. 18, a three year old colt with the given name Neepawa won the 128th running of the Breeders’ Stake.

The horse won with a race time of 2:31.18, leading from post to post. This was Neepawa’s second career victory. Over the course of its career, Neepawa has raced 11 times, collecting a pair of wins, one second place finish and a trio of third place results.

The horse was ridden to victory by French jockey Jerome Lermyte and is owned by Chiefswood Stables, based out of Schomberg, ON.

The Breeders’ Stakes is a race held every year in August at Woodbine Race Track in Toronto. It is the third race in Canada’s triple crown, which includes the Queen’s Plate and Prince of Wales Stakes.
