Malibu Moon's promising 3-year-old filly Original Script made every pole a winning one Sunday at Woodbine, taking the $250,000 Bison City S. by one length. The race is the second leg of the Canadian Filly Triple Tiara.

Malibu Moon, sire of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Orb, is the only sire standing in North America with progeny earnings on the continent in excess of $6 million. His seven stakes winners have accounted for a dozen stakes wins in 2013, fourth-most of all sires.

Original Script, a Chiefswood Stable homebred, went postward the even money choice over six rivals. Ridden by Jesse Campbell, the silver-grey coated filly took the field through leisurely early fractions of :25.19 and :50.24.

After sauntering through three-quarters of a mile in 1:15.10, Original Script was up three lengths turning for home, then held off Smartyfly late for the win, getting the mile and one-sixteenth in 1:45.09.

“Good horses make good things happen,” said Campbell. “Honestly, we were happy with the pace. She ran a great race. She was calm today. She’s grown up mentally. I give all the credit to the barn.”

Winning trainer Paul Attard was pleased with the effort as well.

“She’s become such a professional,” said Attard. “She was a little high-strung as a two-year-old but she’s really matured now and a lovely filly to work with.”

The victory was the fourth win in seven career outings for Original Script and her first stakes score, after being stakes-placed last year (in the Ontario Lassie) and this year (Woodbine Oaks). She earned $150,000 for the Sunday's win, pushing her bankroll to $363,628.
