Shamaree Muir is one of the youngest jockeys to win the Canadian Derby at the age of 21. Muir hails from Jamaica where his previous biggest win was the Super Stakes. This up-and-comer was the two-time leading apprentice in Jamaica. Now he has captured a Grade III, solidifying his spot as a top jockey in Western Canada. Trainer Amber Meyaard and her husband Jim won the Canadian Derby in 2010 with No Hesitation. Ready Intaglio sprinted through on the inside and survived an inquiry to prevail at 7-2 to win the 87th Canadian Derby. Leading up to his derby win, Ready Intaglio won both of his derby prep races the Count Lathum and the Ky Alta.
This is owner Robbin Martens’ first Derby victory.
Coming in second was Solve ridden by Dane Nelson and trained by Robertino Diodoro followed by The Accuser ridden by Damario Bynoe and trained by Rob Chabot.
