TORONTO, July 22, 2020 – A pair of Grade 3 events, the $125,000 Marine Stakes and $125,000 Selene Stakes, share the spotlight this Saturday at Woodbine.

A key prep on the road to this year’s Queen’s Plate (September 12, at Woodbine), the 1 1/16-mile main track Marine, for three-year-olds, has attracted some noteworthy Canadian-breds hoping for a spot in the Plate starting gate.

Queen’s Plate eligibles Dotted Line (18-1 in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook), Glorious Tribute (40-1), and Perfect Revenge (40-1) are set to contest to the Marine.

The 65th running of the Marine will be complemented by the 67th edition of the Selene, a 1 1/16-mile race over the Tapeta for three-year-old fillies, an important fixture ahead of the Woodbine Oaks presented by Budweiser, on August 15.

Merveilleux (25-1 in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook) and Owlette (30-1) are among the Selene notables.

John Oxley’s homebred Lucky Curlin chases his second straight win, this time in the Marine, after a sharp score on June 14 at Woodbine.

The Mark Casse trainee, in his ninth career start and first test on the Toronto oval Tapeta, rallied from fifth at the stretch call of the seven-furlong race to win by a length under Kazushi Kimura.

It was the second win for Kentucky-bred chestnut son of Curlin, who broke his maiden last December at Fair Grounds.

The well-traveled colt, who has raced at Churchill Downs, Saratoga, Keeneland, and Fair Grounds, appears to feel right at home on the Woodbine Tapeta.

Casse hopes the trend continues.

“He’s a horse that’s disappointed me, to be honest. We were always thinking, ‘If he ever gets his act together…’ He was a horse early on that we thought was as good as Enforceable. And of course, Enforceable is going to the Kentucky Derby.

“His last race, from a Beyer standpoint, was very good. I wasn’t surprised, but it was pleasant. He’s been extremely frustrating for us because we’ve had high hopes for him. There are horses whose abilities are limited. He hasn’t been that way. So, we’ll see how he handles two turns. I’m still not positive that he isn’t a come-from-behind sprinter. But we’re going to give it a try.”

Casse’s other Marine starter is Untitled, a Florida-bred son of Khozan, owned by Gary Barber and Michael Sebastian.

The bay colt is 2-3-0 in seven starts.

In his first Woodbine appearance, on June 13, Untitled was second to Newstome in the Woodstock Stakes.

“He’s kind of a mystery horse,” offered Casse, who won the 2017 Marine with Souper Tapit. “He won very impressively first time out and he’s run some good races. I think watching him run… we didn’t have the luxury of getting a breeze over the track before his last start. He got up there and we ran him. I didn’t think he cared for it that much. In fact, I was thinking about running him on the grass, but there really wasn’t a grass race for him. He trained so well afterwards on the synthetic, so we thought we’d give him a try.”

Other Marine contenders include trainer Barb Minshall’s improving Glorious Tribute.

The Ontario-bred son of Congrats has one win and a pair of thirds from seven starts.

“His last race as a two-year-old [a maiden-breaking win at one mile and 70 yards on the Woodbine main track], he got a good trip and we got to stretch him out,” said Minshall. “I thought he ran really well. I took him down south all winter so I knew he was good and fit. I ran him once, on the turf, but the race was just a little too tough at that given time for him. But, I’ve always liked him.”

Minshall, Canada’s champion trainer in 1996, remains a big fan of the dark bay.

“I wanted to make sure he was good and fit because I really had a good feeling that he would get a mile and a quarter [Queen’s Plate distance]. He’s got a nice stride and a good mind. He’s a very laid-back horse. I’m pretty happy where he is right now. He’s a big, sound horse, so I figured let’s get him in, see how he is, get another race, and hopefully from that step go on to the Plate Trial [August 15] and hopefully we end at the Queen’s Plate, and we’ve got a bit of a shot.”

Sam-Son Farm has the most Marine wins (six) for owners, while Sandy Hawley holds the riding record with five Marine crowns. The most recent horse to notch the Marine-Plate double was Shaman Ghost, who achieved the feat in 2015. Last year’s winner, Global Access, went on to earn year-end divisional honours at the Sovereign Awards.

Merveilleux, owned by Al and Bill Ulwelling, seeks her first added-money win in what will be her seventh start.

The daughter of Paynter lost by a neck to Cool Shadows in last year’s Princess Elizabeth and by a head to Curlin’s Voyage in the Ontario Lassie.

Owlette and Merveilleux will be tested by five other rivals, including the Casse trio of American Tap, Diamond Sparkles, and Two Sixty.

A Florida-bred daughter of Uncaptured, Two Sixty, owned by Gary Barber, finished fourth in the Star Shoot Stakes.

“She’s another one since that race who trained much better after being there for a little while,” noted Casse.

Diamond Sparkles, a Kentucky-bred daughter of War Front, made her North American debut in last year’s Grade 1 Natalma Stakes, finishing fourth to Abscond.

The bay’s most recent race, seven furlongs on the Woodbine main track on June 13, yielded a second-place finish.

“She came over from Europe, ran pretty good in the Natalma, and then struggled a little bit through the winter,” said Casse, of the filly owned by Barber and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners. “I thought her last race was good and she’s training well. We’re going to give her a shot.”

American Tap, bred by Tall Oaks Farm, is also owned by Barber.

Casse and Barber teamed to take the past two runnings of the Selene. Miss Mo Mentum won in 2018, while Power Gal was victorious last year.

A victory by any Casse starter would tie him with Yonnie Starr for the most Selene wins by a trainer, with six.

The Marine is Race 3 on Saturday’s 10-race card and the Selene is scheduled as Race 8. First post time is 1 p.m. Fans can watch and wager on all the action via HPIbet.com.

TORONTO, July 9, 2020 – Sixty-one of the finest Canadian-bred three-year-olds remain on target for the 161st running of the $1 million Queen’s Plate, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12.

The connections of 58 Queen’s Plate hopefuls made the July 1 sustaining payment with an additional three supplementing to the 1 1/4-mile opening leg of the Canadian Triple Crown for a fee of $5,000.

Recent Queenston Stakes winner Halo Again is among the top contenders after his triumphant return to Woodbine on July 4 when he defeated a field of fellow Queen’s Plate hopefuls in the seven-furlong prep. Bred by Anderson Farms, the son of Speightstown and Halo’s Verse has won three of his first five career starts, including last year’s Coronation Futurity, while banking almost $260,000 for owners Winchell Thoroughbreds and Willis Horton Racing. The bay colt will aim to pull off the rare Coronation Futurity and Queen’s Plate double, last accomplished by Norcliffe in 1976. He is conditioned by top American trainer Steve Asmussen, whose first foray in the Canadian Triple Crown yielded a third-place finish in last year’s Queen’s Plate followed by a pair of victories in the Prince of Wales Stakes and Breeders’ Stakes courtesy of Tone Broke.

Halo Again is the 8-1 fourth choice in the 2020 Queen’s Plate Winterbook. Nine of the top 10 Winterbook selections remain eligible including pre-season favourite Malibu Mambo, trained by Kevin Attard and owned by Stronach Stables.

The list of nominees includes 10 of the 36 fillies that remain eligible to the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks presented by Budweiser, which will be contested on August 15.

Canadian Triple Crown-winning trainer and new Hall of Fame inductee Mike Keogh has a pair of contenders including Dr. Green, one of the three supplements. Other supplements include Canadian Pharoah, an unraced colt sired by the U.S. Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, and Ennis the Menace.

An additional $10,000 payment or supplementary fee of $25,000 is due upon entry to the Queen’s Plate on Wednesday, Sept. 9 by 8:30 a.m.

Ninety-two horses, including 14 fillies, were originally nominated to the 2020 Queen’s Plate.

TORONTO, July 4, 2020 – Leading jockey Rafael Hernandez swept the back-to-back stakes features as part of a five-win performance on Saturday at Woodbine Racetrack, with Halo Again a popular winner in $125,000 Queenston Stakes and Skywire pulling off a 17-1 upset in the $175,000 Eclipse (Grade 2).

Returning to the scene of his 2019 Coronation Futurity victory, Steve Asmussen trainee Halo Again delivered another winning performance on the road to The Queen’s Plate (September 12), prevailing in the 65th edition of the $125,000 Queenston Stakes on Saturday afternoon.

With Hernandez aboard in the seven-furlong sprint for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds, Halo Again pressed the pace three-wide through panels of :23.35 and :46.29 before eventually switching leads down the lane and drawing clear for the victory in 1:23.63.

Halo Again paid $4.70 to win as the 6-5 favourite. Golden Wave, who emerged along the rail with a short lead after the first quarter, stayed for second finishing 1-1/4 lengths behind, while Glorious Tribute headed See Forever for third another three lengths back. Dotted Line, Tecumseh’s War, Deviant, Perfect Revenge and Ennis the Menace competed the order of finish.

“The main thing was putting him in a good position,” said Hernandez, noting the colt has matured since his juvenile campaign.  “It was clear all the way. We’ve got a long backstretch. So he just broke good, kept him comfortable, clear and he did the rest. Turning for home, he switched leads. He’s a big horse, he’s got a nice heart, good stride. He’s does everything good.”

After going two-for-two last year for owners Winchell Thoroughbreds and Willis Horton Racing, Halo Again was assessed as the 8-1 fourth choice in the 2020 Queen’s Plate Winterbook. He opened his sophomore season in a pair of Grade 3 stakes events stateside, finishing eighth in the Lecomte in January and fourth in the Grade 3 Jeff Ruby Steaks last time out on March 14.

Bred by Anderson Farms Ont. Inc., the son of Speightstown and Halo’s Verse was a $600,000 yearling purchase at the Keeneland sale. He is a half-brother to 2017 Wonder Where Stakes champion Inflexibility (by Scat Daddy), who was a top three finisher in both the Woodbine Oaks and Queen’s Plate.

The most recent winner of both the Queenston Stakes and the Queen’s Plate in the same year was Not Bourbon in 2008 for Hall of Fame trainer Roger Attfield, who also campaigned Norcliffe — the last horse to complete the rare Coronation Futurity and Queen’s Plate double in 1976.

Skywire put Hernandez back in the stakes spotlight one race later as he hauled down the popular Josie Carroll trainees, Avie’s Flatter and Mr Ritz, to spring a 17-1 surprise in the $175,000 Eclipse Stakes (Grade 2).

The Mark Casse trainee, who was the beaten favourite in last year’s Queen’s Plate, earned his first win since taking the Wando Stakes in April 2019 for owners Gary Barber and Lou Tucci.

Racing near the back the entire way while tracking Avie’s Flatter along the rail, Skywire followed that foe wide turning for home in the 1-1/16-mile affair for older horses then hauled down the late leader in the stretch for the victory in 1:44.12.

The winner’s stablemate, Uncle Bull, had set fractions of :25.16, :48.32 and 1:12.17 to three-quarters with 3-5 favourite Mr Ritz pressing the pace and Avie’s Flatter stalking inside. Avie’s Flatter tipped out three-wide on the final turn and took command in the stretch before Skywire came flying late on the far outside to finish 1-1/4 lengths in front. Mr Ritz held third while Journeyman, Uncle Bull, Solidify and Cooler Mike rounded out the field.

Overlooked by the betting public at 17-1, Skywire returned $36.10 to his backers while notching his fourth career win from 10 starts.

“You can’t worry about [the odds] when you’ve got Casse in the race. He put him in there because he knows he belongs and he showed up,” said Hernandez, who noted the race set up perfectly as he was able to track Avie’s Flatter the whole way while two horses set a good pace on the lead. “As soon as I put him clear, he just turned on and kept going.”

Bred in Ontario by William Graham, the four-year-old Afleet Alex-Meandering Stream gelding helped Casse to successive scores in the Eclipse. Casse won this race in 2019 with Souper Tapit. He also trained the 2006 winner Arch Hall.

Hernandez, who concluded the 10-race card with five wins, picked up his second Eclipse title having also guided the Attfield-trained Are You Kidding Me to victory in the 2018 edition.

Live Thoroughbred racing continues, without spectators, on Sunday afternoon with a star-studded Fury Stakes for three-year-old Canadian-foaled fillies headlining the 11-race card. Post time for the first race is 1 p.m., with the $125,000 seven-furlong stakes feature scheduled as the ninth race.

TORONTO, July 3, 2020 – Six fillies, including Gun Society, vie for top prize in Sunday’s $125,000 Fury Stakes, at Woodbine.

A daughter of Society’s Chairman, Gun Society arrives at the seven-furlong Fury (for Canadian-foaled three-year-old fillies), a key race on the road to the Woodbine Oaks presented by Budweiser (August 15), and possible date in the Queen’s Plate (September 12), off a half-length score in the South Ocean Stakes in November.

Bred, owned and trained by dual Hall of Fame inductee Roger Attfield, Gun Society is listed at 30-1 in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook.

“I wanted to have started before this race, but we had a little setback,” said Attfield, who also campaigned Society’s Chairman. “I need to get her started, so I was looking at this race anyway.”

Gun Society debuted on July 20, 2019, in a six-furlong test over the Toronto oval’s E.P. Taylor Turf Course, finishing fourth over ‘good’ going.

After a pair of third-place efforts and a second – all on the Woodbine grass – Gun Society broke her maiden in the penultimate start of her rookie year. Under Kazushi Kimura, the chestnut eked out a nose win in a 1 1/16-mile race run on the Woodbine Inner Turf.

In the final start of her two-year-old campaign, Gun Society stepped up to the stakes ranks, and delivered a 7-1 upset in the main track South Ocean on November 16.

“I was a little bit surprised [at her odds],” offered Attfield. “She did seem like she was improving all the time. It was the perfect fit for her at that time in her life.”

Attfield was pleased with the development of his filly throughout 2019, including the ability to handle both turf and Tapeta.

“She has the pedigree to run long. She’s very closely related to the Kentucky Derby winner [Country House] from last year. I think she’s going to get better going longer. Seven furlongs, in the Fury, is the place to get her started. So, that’s where we are, really.”

Other contenders include Avie’s Samurai, a dark bay daughter of First Samurai. Bred and owned by Ivan Dalos, the Josie Carroll trainee fashions a mark of 2-1-2 from seven starts. Carroll also sends out Grade 3 Mazarine Stakes champ Curlin’s Voyage (6-1, third choice in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook), who finished second but was elevated to first in the 1 1/16-mile main track stakes last October. She was named Canada’s Champion Two-Year-Old Filly for her $265,000 juvenile campaign.

NHL star Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is the co-owner of undefeated filly Infinite Patience. Bred and co-owned by William DeCoursey, the decorated bay daughter of Sungold is a perfect five-for-five. Her last four victories have all come in stakes events at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver.

The Fury represents her three-year-old debut.

“She’s very impressive and last year was so great,” Nugent-Hopkins told Woodbine. “I’m pretty lucky to have partnered with her breeder. It’s really been fun.”

Last year, Mark Casse trainees Speedy Soul, Hastalavistababy and Western Curl swept the top three spots in the Fury.

The Fury is Race 9 on Sunday’s 11-race card. First post time is 1 p.m. Fans can watch and wager on all the action via HPIbet.com.

TORONTO, July 2, 2020 – The $125,000 Queenston Stakes, a key race on the road to this year’s Queen’s Plate, and the Grade 2 $175,000 Eclipse Stakes share the spotlight this Saturday at Woodbine.

Nine horses will contest the seven-furlong Queenston, a main track stakes for three-year-olds foaled in Canada. The 65th edition of the race serves as an important prep for the Queen’s Plate, slated for September 12 at Woodbine.

Dotted Line, trained by Sid Attard for Howard Walton’s Norseman Racing Stable, finished fifth and fourth, respectively, in his first two starts before rhyming off three straight wins in his rookie campaign.

The now three-year-old gelded son of Signature Red closed the book on his first season at the races with back-to-back stakes wins, taking the Frost King by a neck, at 49-1, in November, and the Kingarvie, as the 3-5 choice, in December.

“He’s a very nice horse,” said Attard, of the horse listed as the 18-1 ninth choice in the 2020 Queen’s Plate Winterbook. “He’s a big, strong horse, and we liked him right from the start.”

Justin Stein once again gets the call.

“He has the right attitude, the drive to win and compete,” said Stein, who was aboard for the Frost King and Kingarvie wins. “When I ride him, he feels like he knows he is the best and he’s ready to prove it.”

Other notable Queenston starters include Halo Again, owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC and Willis Horton Racing LLC.

The son of Speightstown, trained by Steve Asmussen, and bred by David Anderson, won his first two starts, including the 2019 running of the Coronation Futurity.

Listed as the fourth choice (8-1) in the Queen’s Plate Winterbook, Halo Again finished eighth in the Grade 3 Lecomte in January, and fourth in the Grade 3 Jeff Ruby Steaks, in March.

The Eclipse, run at 1 1/16 miles on the Toronto oval Tapeta, has attracted seven hopefuls for the 65th running of the stakes for four-year-olds and up.

Three-time stakes winner Cooler Mike, a five-year-old son of Giant Gizmo, goes after his first graded stakes title.

Bred and owned by father and son duo Mike and Nick Nosowenko, the gelding is one of the most consistent competitors on the Woodbine grounds, having assembled a 6-4-5 record from 21 career starts.

Three of those wins – all stakes – came last year, a campaign that saw the Ontario-bred win the Halton, Bunty Lawless, and Sir Barton Stakes.

Cooler Mike narrowly missed making it four added-money triumphs, finishing a neck behind Kingsport in the Steady Growth Stakes.

“When you win three stakes with an Ontario horse, I think it’s a pretty good highlight,” said Nick Nosowenko, who also trains. “Then he lost that close one in the Steady Growth, which was another big effort. He’s come around to be a very good horse. He’s very sound now, and that’s the best thing going into a race like this.”

He arrives at the Eclipse off a fifth-place finish in his 2020 debut, a 7-1/2-furlong Inner Turf race at the Toronto oval on June 11.

“He’s doing great,” said Nick Nosowenko. “That last race, there was nowhere else to go. I was kind of leery about going on the Inner Turf with the tight turns, but he ran pretty well. He looked like he was going to do something turning for home, but they just sprinted off on him. He galloped out strong and in front. He wasn’t his happy self for the last little while, but after his work [five furlongs in :59-flat, breezing, on the Woodbine main track, on June 27], he started to have that bounce in his step again. I think he’ll run a big one on Saturday.”

The chestnut, who won his career bow on August 7, 2017, went on to contest two of the three Canadian Triple Crown Series races in his sophomore season. He was third in both the Queen’s Plate (June 30, 2018), at Woodbine, and the Prince of Wales (July 24, 2018), at Fort Erie.

“I think he’s got a cool name, and he’s built up a good following. I think people enjoy seeing him run like he does. He’s won on different courses, and he’s won at a mile-and-a-half, and come back to win at a mile-and-a-sixteenth. That’s quite an adjustment for any horse, and he’s done that. He’s thriving right now. He’s just a cool horse. He’s the laid-back guy in the barn. Put him on the track and then he’s a beast.”

Two-time (Edenwold, 2006; Inglorious, 2011) Queen’s Plate-winning trainer Josie Carroll sends out Avie’s Flatter and Mr Ritz in the Eclipse.

A four-year-old son of Flatter, Avie’s Flatter has compiled a 4-2-2 mark from 11 starts for owner-breeder Ivan Dalos.

The Ontario-bred chestnut launched his 2019 campaign with a smart score in the Grade 3 Transylvania Stakes last April at Keeneland.

He contested all of last year’s Canadian Triple Crown races, finishing second in both the Queen’s Plate and Prince of Wales, and third in the Breeders’ Stakes.

In his most recent effort, Avie’s Flatter was third, a half-length out of top spot, in a 7-1/2-furlong Inner Turf race at Woodbine on June 11.

“He had a good winter, but was set to run in the spring,” said Carroll, who was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2019. “We didn’t get that opportunity and it was a little difficult to keep him focused and waiting. We got a nice race into him now, and I think that’s going to propel him forward. He always shows up. We’re taking a step forward, running with older horses this year – it’s a different game.”

Earle Mack’s five-year-old Mr Ritz went 2-2-0 from five engagements last year, a season highlighted by a 1 ¼-length victory in the Grade 3 Seagram Cup Stakes, in August, followed by another 1 ¼-mile triumph one month later, in the Presque Isle Mile.

The British-bred son of Oasis Dream just missed winning last year’s edition of the Eclipse, finishing a nose back of Souper Tapit.

“I think he had a tremendous season last year,” praised Carroll. “We gave him the whole winter off, and freshened him up. We really had targeted a mid-summer start anyway, so everything’s fallen into place properly for him. He was just impressive all of last year. Every time you send him out to do something, he just goes out and gets the job done. He matured a lot last year. It took him a while to settle into things, and he’s just really grown up. He’s turned into a pretty special horse.”

Carroll is confident in both her charges.

“I think they’re both live horses. They’re two consistent, live horses, that show up every time you lead them over.”

Last year, Mark Casse trainee Federal Law paid $9.70 to win the Queenston as the 7-2 third choice on the toteboard.

Live Oak Plantation’s homebred Souper Tapit, also campaigned by Casse, took last year’s Eclipse, returning $5.90 for the victory.

On Saturday, Casse sends out Deviant in the Queenston as well as Eclipse contenders Uncle Bull and Skywire.

The Queenston is carded as race seven on Saturday’s 10-race program. The Eclipse goes as a race eight. First post is 1 p.m. Fans can watch and wager on all the action through HPIBet.com.
