BENSALEM, Pa. -- Trainer John Servis isnt sure what the long-term future for Cathryn Sophia holds. He is pretty certain that she will give undefeated Songbird everything she has in Saturdays Grade 1, $1 million Cotillion Stakes at Parx Racing.Ive been confident in her from the first day she ran, Servis said Wednesday morning at Parx. Shes going to show up, shes going to bring her game. If shes good enough, thats the question.Thus far, nobody has been good enough to beat Songbird, who has won all 10 of her starts by a combined 54-3/4 lengths. That includes six Grade 1 victories, most recently in the Alabama and Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga.While Songbird is 10 for 10, Cathryn Sophia has won six of her eight races, including the Kentucky Oaks, a race Songbird missed due to illness. Cathryn Sophias two losses came in the Grade 1 Ashland at Keeneland and the Grade 1 Acorn at Belmont.Arguably, her two losses could be put back on me just training her a little different going into both those races, Servis said.Following the Acorn, Servis gave Cathryn Sophia a significant break. Her training picked up in Saratoga, where she had a brilliant work Aug. 16, four days before Songbird won the Alabama. Servis resisted any temptation to run her in a major stakes at Saratoga and instead ran her in the $150,000 Princess of Sylmar Stakes here, which she won by 6-1/2 lengths in a canter.Her race was good, Servis said. It wasnt too much; just enough to wheel her right back.Although Cathryn Sophia is 2 for 2 at Parx and has been stabled here for the last month, Servis does not feel she has any home-court advantage over Songbird or Carina Mia, who beat Cathryn Sophia in the Acorn.I understand wanting to get to a place early, let the horse settle in, but when I hear people say, Oh, yeah, I want to get there early and train over the track, well, its never the same track they run on, Servis said.Servis, who has called Parx his home for decades, said the Cotillion has been his major goal for Cathryn Sophia ever since the Kentucky Oaks.Noting that Cathryn Sophia has been a bit of a challenge to train, Servis suggested its a very good possibility the Cotillion could be Cathryn Sophias last race.However, owner Chuck Zacney, who has entered Cathryn Sophia in the Fasig-Tipton sale in November, said he would like to run her in the Breeders Cup Distaff if things go well in the Cotillion.Our intention is to run through the Breeders Cup, Zacney said. I do have her in the Fasig-Tipton sale, but its always easier to enter and scratch. This gives us options, but Im not thinking that far ahead.

After four-plus seasons with the Stamps, it took only one trip across the Rocky Mountains for the offensive lineman to gain a whole new perspective on his CFL career. "My outlook is very different from what it has been for the last five years -- Ill tell you that much," said Myddelton after his first workout Monday with the B.C. Lions after the club returned to practice after a bye week. The Lions acquired Myddelton, a 27-year-old Barrie, Ont., native who is in the fifth year of a CFL career spent entirely with the Stampeders, for a conditional 2014 draft choice. Myddeltons first game with his new team will could come at home Saturday, against his old team. B.C. traded for the guard last week in a bid to acquire depth after promising rookie Kirby Fabien was lost for the season with a knee injury that required reconstructive surgery. Myddelton was one of two new faces in the B.C. fold Monday. The Lions also added defensive back Cameron Chism, a former Indianapolis Colt, to their practice roster. While Chism will likely have to wait a while for his turn, Myddelton is expected to draw into the lineup right away, although coach Mike Benevides was not offering confirmation. "Im really excited to be here," said Myddelton. "I cant wait to play against Calgary. "Theyre playing really good football right now. The Lions are obviously one of the premier teams in the league year in and year out. Its always an exciting matchup, and Im excited to be on the other side of the ball for it." But Myddelton, a St. Francis Xavier University alumnus who was drafted by Calgary in the fourth round (30th overall) in 2009, holds no ill feelings against his former club after Stampeders general manager and coach John Hufnagel decided to move him to a West Division rival. "Theyre a classy organization," said Myddelton. "Hes a classy guy." Now, Myddelton finds himself in the position of providing injury insurance after he battled injuries of his own. He lost his starting job with the Stamps after missing most of last season with a knee injury that required surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. "I hurt myself two years ago but only missed four games towards the end of the season," he said. "I came back last year and was starting again, and then I blew my ACL out in practice and missed the remainder of the season, and this year there wasnt really a spot for me." Myddeltons ordeal was compounded by the fact he is in the last year of his contract and slated to become a free agent at the end of this season.dddddddddddd "I think all these things came into play," he said. "So it was hard the first few games of the season, realizing where I sat and what was happening. So it was nice to have something finalized and know that I have a home here for the rest of the season." He is grateful for an opportunity to help a Lions offensive line that is also grappling with centre Angus Reids back injury, which has placed him on the nine-game injured reserve list. Veteran guard Dean Valli, who has helped the Lions get through Fabiens injury by starting in his place, is playing on a rebuilt knee. "I have sympathy, really, for the guys whove gone down," said Myddelton. "Its a hard thing to deal with. But I also know that they can come back from it, because here I am less than a year later. Its not the end of anything. Also, it provided me with the opportunity to be here in the first place. So Im taking that (opportunity) for what it is and trying to do my best while Im here." Benevides is glad to have more depth on the offensive line as his club prepares to face the Stamps, whom he rates as the team to beat in the West after their win over the previously unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders last weekend. Although offensive linemen often toil anonymously, the Lions coach is already quite familiar with Myddelton and likes what he has seen. "I know (Myddelton) from prepping against him, and I know this: Hes an extremely intelligent player," said Benevides. "Hes a tough guy, hes a guy thats played and had some starts. Right now, hes a very good lineman, who has experience, whos been in the league now five years, that can step in. And, right now, if he stepped in right away, hed have an understanding." Chism, a 23-year-old Washington, D.C., native, who spent part of 2012 with Indianapolis before being released, was also brought in for depth purposes. He signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent after starting 32 of his 44 games at Maryland, where he returned two interceptions for touchdowns. But he was released in September and did not receive another NFL opportunity this year. "Hes a guy thats been on the radar a little bit," said Benevides. Notes--The Lions knew of Chism from his days at Maryland and the fact he attended the same Forestville, Md., high school as B.C. defensive backs coach Mark Washington. a Lions slotback Nick Moore is expected to return to the lineup after missing the win over Winnipeg with an ankle injury. a B.C. defensive end Julius Williams has a chance to play after missing most of the season with a knee injury.
