Graded stakes placed CONQUEST CURLINATE, a son of Curlin from the Grade 2 winning mare Higher World (Peaks and Valleys) was represented by his first winner on Friday at Woodbine. Lady Noguez won her maiden at 1 1/16 miles in her second career start by four lengths under a hand ride for owners Lou Tucci and Martha Gonzalez and trainer Nick Gonzalez. The grey 2-year-old filly, a $14,000 purchase earlier this year, was bred by Charles Hayden.

The filly, who was visually impressive in the victory in the $25,00 claiming event, is from the Sadler’s Wells mare Lileagh.

Conquest Curlinate was second in the Grade 2 Peter Pan Stakes, second in the Grade 3 Illinois Derby by a nose and second in the Plate Trial Stakes while being trained by Mark Casse. He was one of the Casse stables’ top 3-year-olds in 2015.
