Joshua Tree Wins Canadian International

It was an ominous beginning for Irish-bred Joshua Tree, who delayed the start of the $2 million Pattison Canadian International (Can-IT) because he lost a shoe in the paddock.


But after he got his equipment issues figured out the 3-year-old colt was just fine, as he took the lead in mid-stretch and desperately held off the late charges of Mores Wells and favored Redwood to score by a head for the biggest win of his career Oct. 16 at Woodbine.
Joshua Tree, who was making his North American debut for trainer Aidan O’Brien, earned an automatic berth to the Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Turf (gr. IT) Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs.
