TORONTO, October 8, 2021 – Pleasecallmeback was crowned this year’s Turf Endurance champion and in doing so, earned bonuses for trainer-owner, dual Hall of Famer Roger Attfield, courtesy of a trio of impressive performances throughout the Woodbine series.
Pleasecallmeback earned 24 points to top the table in the three-leg event. The four-year-old son of Hard Spun, who finished second in the series’ two previous races, was much the best in the final leg on Friday, going on to an authoritative 4 ¾-length triumph in the 1 ¾-mile marathon contested over a E.P. Taylor Turf Course listed as good.
Bred in Ontario by Sean and Dorothy Fitzhenry, the dark bay gelding paid $6.10 to win, in what was his first victory of the campaign. In 21 career starts, Pleasecallmeback back has a record of 2-8-2.
Mambointheforest ($161.10 to win) took the first leg over 1 3/8-miles on the inner course. Taos (FR), at 4-1, took the 1 ½-mile second leg, also on the inner, for trainer Kevin Attard.
A total of $22,500 in bonuses were awarded to the top three finishers, with the winning owner and trainer – in this instance, both being Attfield – receiving $10,000 and $5,000, respectively.
Taos was second in the point standings with 18. Mambointheforest recorded 16 points to place third for trainer Ron Sadler.
