Gelding has never finished off the board in eight career starts.

June 17, 2012

Steve Hunter’s homebred Zoomin After Six used a big late move to capture the $57,940 Maple Leaf Derby on Sunday at Ajax Downs in Ontario, Canada. The Ontario-bred gelding by Zoomin For Bux earned a 99 speed index for sprinting 300 yards in :15.35 with Helen Vanek up for trainer Janet Grice.

Zoomin After Six has spent his entire career in Ontario, where he has compiled a record of 8-3-4-1 with earnings of $136,131. The gelding won last year’s Alex Picov Memorial Futurity (R) at Ajax and ran second in the Ontario Jackpot Futurity at Fort Erie.

Peter and Craig Spada’s Heros Valiant Lark, a gelded son of Valiant Hero, finished second with Shez So Susie in third for owner Gary McNichol.
