Orientate's 4-year-old son Endofconversation closed with a flourish to win the Bob Summers Memorial Cup S. by a head at Fort Erie Racetrack on Aug 1. This was the first stakes start for the dark bay, who was bred in Florida by Don Graham, and the fourth winner in three days for the Gainesway stallion.
Endofconversation was near the back after the break of six furlong contest and was still seven lengths from the lead with a quarter mile to run, but he put in a determined run down the middle of the stretch to get up in time. The final time was 1:09.45 over a fast track.
Owned and trained by Dorothy Genter, Endofconversation is 7-6-4 in 26 starts, earning $156,635. He is out of the Storm Cat mare Stormagain, who was twice Group 3 placed in France.
Orientate has six stakes horses, and his 88 winners on the year ranks among the top 15 of all North American stallions.
