Multiple grade I winner Court Vision, overlooked at odds of 7-1, soared past The Usual Q. T. in deep stretch to capture the $1 million Woodbine Mile (Can-IT) at the Toronto track Sept. 19.
With Robby Albarado aboard, Court Vision angled to the outside for
the drive and collared The Usual Q. T., who had rallied to get the lead
mid-stretch but could not hold on in the final strides.
The 5-year-old son of Gulch
returned to the winner's circle for the first time since he was placed
first through disqualification in the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap
(gr. IT) in February.
Rick Dutrow Jr., who trains Court Vision for IEAH Stables and Resolute
Group Stables, said Court Vision would return to Churchill Downs Nov. 6
for the $2 million TVG Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT). Court Vision, who
earned a starting berth with his Woodbine Mile victory, finished fourth
in last year's BC Mile at Santa Anita.
