Pattison Canadian International 2013 - Joshua Tree makes it three

The Irish bred Joshua Tree was the sentimental choice but without a win this year he went off at 6-1 and became the first - three time winner of the race in its 73 year history. He was chased down the long turf stretch with by Hyper and Seismos but hung on for the half length victory. The amazing thing about the six year-old Joshua Tree is that he has won this race with 3 different trainers. All top three International finishers were descendants of Northern Dancer.

1) Joshua Tree (IRE) - great grandson x3 through Sadlers Wells/Montjeau
2) Hyper (USA) - great grandson through the Nureyev dam Raw Nerve
3) Seismos (IRE) great great grandson through a Sadlers Wells/Old Vic dam
