What the Nation is saying about Captain Canuck...

HANDICAPPING TODAY'S PRINCE OF WALES STAKES I have to go against the home team. No horse has yet to win the Prince Of Wales after winning the Plate on polytrack. I think that is the least of what Big Red Mike has to overcome. Big Red Mike benefited from the best speed track since Polytrack replaced ...Read More
The draw for Sunday's 75th running of the Prince of Wales Stakes was held this afternoon and a field of eight is confirmed for the event. The race is contested on dirt over a distance of a mile and three sixteenths and is the second leg of the multi-surface Canadian Triple Crown which commences with...Read More
The connections of BIG RED MIKE (Tenpins) are hoping that his brush with royalty will translate into a sweep of the Canadian Triple Crown, but first the chestnut will have to take on seven rivals in the second leg of the series, the C$500,000 Prince of Wales S., at Fort Erie on Sunday. Read More
  • humphrey · Fort Erie is the polar opposite of Woodbine. While Hotep should stand out here, his pace distribution is later that what works at the Fort, ALMOST.....Appears there may not be too much form reversal come Sunday as the top two stick out again....but what about this newcomer Golden Moka? How does one evaluate that colt? · 1367 days ago ·

The Prince of Wales Stakes, the second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown, will go to post at beautiful Fort Erie Race Track on Sunday afternoon. I made the rounds of the Woodbine backstretch on Monday morning to try and firm up which Queen's Plate entrants would make the trip to the border oval....Read More

  • humphrey · One thing to look for after this race: the winning jockey runs out and jumps into one of the infield lakes as a part of the standard celebration....Watch for it. · 1371 days ago ·

Hollinger, the winterbook favorite for Canada's Queen's Plate next month, heads a field of eight Ontario-bred 3-year-olds entered for the $150,000 Plate Trial Stakes over Woodbine's Polytrack June 13.Read More
Woodbine has ten female jockeys in the colony currently. Recently, it was noted that Francine Villeneuve - Canada's winningest female jockey - is returning to compete at Fort Erie. The Welland Tribune reports: Francine Villeneuve confirmed Monday she will be back in the saddle this season...Read More
  • humphrey · She is competent as I have watched her many times put in journeyman type rides. Too bad a tiger named Natalie Sahota broke her leg or all would be hering about her back there. · 1466 days ago ·

The deadline for entering the Queen's Plate Fantasy Challenge is midnight of Friday April 9th. It's a simple concept - pick ten horses and three jockeys and then sit back and watch as your stable earns fantasy dollars based on real race results.The contest comes to its conclusion with the 151st runn...Read More
2010 will mark the 151st running of the Queen's Plate - the longest continuously run stakes race in North America. The race is restricted to Three-Year-Olds foaled in Canada competing for a purse worth $1,000,000. As in 2009, I will be competing in the Media Division of Woodbine's Queen's Plate Fant...Read More
  • humphrey · Some good names over the years but I love the 1870'sd FLOSS. BE sure you visit the Hall of Fame at Woodbine before it is boxed up and put into mothballs. They just fired their curator and founder who wrote the definitive book on the subject called A Royal Tradition. · 1476 days ago ·

Interest in the 151st edition of the Queen's Plate reached a new level in March when newspaper reports suggested that the first leg of the Canadian Triple Crown might be witnessed by its namesake monarch, Queen Elizabeth. "There is no question we hope the queen will come, but haven't heard...Read More
They say that history is told by the victors. The same does not hold true for horse racing. At least as it applies to handicapping. Anyone who has ever wagered on a race and lost is guilty of imposing their own version of events into the facts...Read More
Woodbine released its annual Queen's Plate Winterbook on Wednesday afternoon listing Hollinger as 5-2 favourite. The 151st edition of the Queen’s Plate is set for July 4th at Woodbine. I have been tracking many of the Plate hopefuls on my 2010 Queen's Plate contenders page...Read More
This post will cover the winners of the Gotham and Sham Stakes as well as a new contender for the 2010 Queen's Plate by the name of Captain Canuck. I was well pleased with my handicapping of the Gotham Stakes. After correctly tossing out the horses coming out of the oddly run Whirlaway Stakes...Read More
