Avie's Flatter winning the Transylvania Stakes (G3) - Keeneland Photo The third time might be the charm for #7 Avie’s Flatter in the $400,000 Breeders’ Stakes at Woodbine, the final leg of the Canadian Triple Crown. Avie’s Flatter performed admirably without a victory in the first two legs of the challenging series. In the 1 1/4-mile Queen’s Plate Stakes over the Woodbine Tapeta track, Avie’s Flatter tracked the pace but couldn’t quite wear down the leader on his [...]

Outside runners frequently excel in the Kentucky Derby (G1), because the large field and testing 1 1/4-mile distance combine [...]

Shakhimat winning the 2017 Tropical Turf Stakes - © Lauren King/Adam Coglianese Photography #1 Shakhimat might not be the most consistent horse in training, but when he starts in Saturday’s $175,000 Connaught Cup Stakes (G2) at Woodbine, I think he’ll be sitting on a winning performance. The 6-year-old son of Lonhro has long been a classy stakes competitor and has even nabbed a couple of high-profile victories at the graded stakes level, including the 2017 Tropical Turf Stakes [...]
Bold Script winning the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Woodbine - Michael Burns Photo There are four stakes winners among the five fillies entered in Saturday’s $125,000 Selene Stakes (G3) at Woodbine, but despite the quality of the small field, I expect the race to be dominated by #4 Bold Script. Trained by Stuart Simon, the 3-year-old daughter of Speightstown demonstrated high-class form on turf at Woodbine last year, most notably when she finished third in the Natalma Stakes [...]
