A great book by a great fellow was just updated with the 150th running of the race. Lou Cauz, long the director of the Canadian Thoroughbred Hall of Fame, has written the definitive book abou this race entitled The Plate 150 years of Royal Tradion from Don Juan to Eye of the Leopard. I mentioned that I liked the name floss and he immediately answered: "That was 1871 wasn' it?"
Dan is a nice fellow who reports accurately. Can't fault his calls.
It is not well appreciated but, the track profile of winners at Woodbine, even at that distance, favors earlier horses than almost any artificial course out there. When Mike Fox won over Allejandro and Jiggs Cauz, AND in the case of No Bourbon, the earliest of the contenders were all there at the wire.
Really? You're going to lead with Dan Loiselle is one of the best callers in the business? What business is that? Canadian racecalling? Don't get me wrong, he's no slouch. But he's definitely not in the top 5, and questionably in the top 10, which doesn't earn the moniker "one of the best".
