Seventeen line up for Queen's Plate

A full field of 17 Canadian-foaled 3-year-olds, led by Check Your Soul, Queen'splatekitten, and filly Inglorious lead the way in the $1 million Queen’s Plate June 26 at Woodbine.

The first leg of the Canadian Triple Crown and the oldest continuously run stakes in North America, the Queen’s Plate is run at 1 1/4 miles on Polytrack. Post time is set for 5:36 p.m. EDT. It’s the largest field since 1999.

Charles Fipke’s homebred Check Your Soul will be trying to hand trainer Roger Attfield a record ninth Plate win. Attfield, currently tied with Harry Giddings Jr., last won the Plate in 2008 with another Fipke homebred, Not Bourbon.

To be ridden by Patrick Husbands, who won the 2003 Plate en route to a Triple Crown aboard Wando, Check Your Soul did not race as a 2-year-old but has won three of his four starts this year, including a 3 1/4-length score in the June 5 Plate Trial. The son of Perfect Soul also won the May 1 Wando Stakes impressively and seems primed for another big run as the 3-1 morning-line favorite.
