O' Canada Stakes Saturday

Looking over the Northern boarder to take a fantastic Turf mile for our Stakes Saturday.

Woodbine Race 12 {Woodbine Mile~G1~1 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A field of eight will go to the gate in this annual contest. There is some speed to set honest fractions. Speed numbers are fairly close with three Euros coming in to take up the challenge. It should be the best race of the day as we edge even closer to the Breeder's Cup races.

#8 Tepin (Leparoux / Casse) is the lone girl taking on these boys. She is certainly the horse to beat as she tries to maintain her seven race winning streak. This daughter of Bernstein should sit right off the pace and gun it in the stretch. Coming into this race off a modest layoff after winning a prestigious Ascot race across the pond, she should be able to handle these guys. This esteemed lady holds the highest speed number at the distance and has put in four sensational peaking workouts in preparation. Not much value for a W/P/S wager. We will throw down an Exacta wheel with our selections.
$1 WIN

#1 Tower of Texas (DaSilva / R. Attfield) should challenge as he takes up a little bet closer tracking position. He holds the second highest speed number at the distance, a two race progression, and three powerful peaking workouts. This lad loves the Woodbine course like no other earning an 85% in the money record over it. A son of Street Sense, he will build up a serious kick heading down the long stretch.
$1 PLACE / $2 SHOW.

#5 Full Mast (Rosario / Mott) appears to be ready for a big race with possibly the highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and one sound workout. He will be coming into this with a brief freshening seeking to cash as he rounds into form. A son of Mizzen Mast, expect him to track the pace and strike in the stretch.
$1 SHOW.

#2 Mutakayyef [GB] (O'Neill / Haggas) is one of the Euro invaders seeking an upset. He has raced exceptionally well in Great Britain having a 100% in the money record from thirteen starts. He was in for the show last out at a longer route. This lad is a son of Sea the Stars [GB]. Look him to take up a tracking positon looking to explode in the stretch.

Exotic Plays

$1 Exacta Wheel:  #8 Tepin / #1 Tower of Texas, #5 Full Mast, #2 Mutakayyef [GB].

20 CENT Superfecta:  #8 Tepin  /  #1 Tower of Texas  /  #5 Full Mast, #2 Mutakayyef [GB]  /  ALL.

Last Superfecta Sunday (9/11) Results
Kentucky Downs R9.  Dueling Grounds Derby.  We were very unsuccessful in hitting the 10 CENT Superfecta box wager, only capturing one of the four required for victory. Superfecta went 11-6-1-4.
Our Bronze Horseshoe runner, Little Scotty, finished 9th.
Bankroll flops to $130.59.
