Q-Racing Journal

An $18,000 yearling purchase, Charles Stojan's True Copy earned her first stakes win in Saturday's Canada Cup Futurity.

True Copy, a gray daughter of TR Dasher owned by Charles J. Stojan, earned her first stakes win in Saturday's $60,372 Canada Cup Futurity (RG3) at Century Downs.

Ridden by Ricardo Moreno for trainer William Leech, True Copy went 400 yards in :20.042 and recorded a 103 speed index while defeating Honeys Pop A Tac by a half of a length. The California-bred filly banked the $27,167 winner's share of the purse and her fifth win in six outs.

True Copy was bred by Edward C. Allred, and the filly posted the fastest qualifying time with her two-length victory in the last of three Canada Cup Futurity trials on October 1. True Copy is out of Realistically, a homebred daughter of champion Separatist who won the 2006 Kansas Derby (G3) at The Woodlands Racetrack in Kansas City.

Stojan acquired True Copy as a yearling for $18,000 at last year's Los Alamitos Equine Sale. The filly has earned $38,591 while racing exclusively in Alberta.

Knotty Knita, First Prize Cruise, Bringonthewave, Stripsteak, Atomic Blondie, and Stole An Encore completed the order of finish.
