Superfecta Sunday at Woodbine

Another thrilling Peakness is in the record books.   Unfortunately the Triple Crown drought continues and next year we will celebrate thirty-six years without one.

Today we go up North, virtually speaking, to cool Canada to take in another exhilarating stakes race on the poly track.

Woodbine Race 8 {Selene Stakes~G3~3 year old~fillies}
A fantastic field of eight fillies will jog to the gate in this annual affair.  There is enough speed to keep the pace honest with a few that like to be forwardly placed and a couple that will surely come off the pace.  All in here are equally matched which should elevate the challenge to put together a winning 20 CENT Superfecta box ticket.  Yes, Woodbine has a 20 CENT minimum on their superfecta tickets.  The race will be a very good one, no doubt, eh.

#8 Coffee Clique (Contreras / Lynch) might have an edge with the second highest last out speed number over Turf, a two race progression, and three robust workouts.  She should be able to track and close nicely into a fluid pace.  She has already notched a win over the synthetic surface in her only start on it.  She is our Bronze Horseshoe runner.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Overheard (DaSilva / Pierce) should challenge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two superb workouts.  This gal is 100% in the money in five career starts.  Expect her to be forwardly placed ready to make a move.

#2 Nipssing (Bahen / Halden) may be the favorite with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four stellar, peaking workouts.  She is primed and ready having already scored four victories from five career starts.  If she gets her pace, she could be tough to beat.

#3 Spring Venture (Husbands / Casse) will contend with a couple of decent last out speed numbers in big races, two wins in three starts at this distance, and three stout workouts.  She could be forwardly placed over the poly track surface she enjoys.  This gal is one of the few fillies nominated to the Triple Crown.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($4.80)

#8 Coffee Clique  +  #4 Overheard  +  #2 Nipissing  +  #3 Spring Venture.
