Kimchi, who sat a perfect trip in today's Wonder Where Stakes, was no match for the last furlongs of the 1 1/4 mile turf test for Canadian-bred 3-year-old fillies and couldn't sweep the Triple Tiara.
Hillsbrook Farms' Like a Gem blew up the video board at Woodbine with her 48 to 1 score, a remarkable win by a lean, leggy daughter of Tactical Cat who fared so poorly in the Oaks that most of her fans left her bandwagon.
"It's been a tough road with her, but she's a tough filly," said trainer Danny Vella. "She had the virus in the Oaks and then she needed a race before this one, so we abused her, ran her in a short race, but she's a great filly and she does great things."
David Clark rode the winner. Red-hot Todd Kabel managed to stretch 9 1/2 furlongs out of Sam-Son Farms' Strike Softly to be second and Stronach Stables' Spritely was third. Kimchi stalled and finished fourth.
