TVG On-Site for Woodbine Mile

TVG logo
All eyes will be on Toronto’s Woodbine Racecourse this weekend when Canada’s center of Thoroughbred racing presents six graded stakes with purses totaling just under $2.5 million. On-site to deliver exclusive, live coverage of all the action will be TVG, America’s Horseracing Network.

 

Topping the action will be the 25th running of the Grade I, $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile, scheduled for Sunday at 5:42 p.m. ET. Saturday’s feature is the Grade II, $250,000 Summer Stakes Presented by TVG, which has a scheduled post time of 5:21 p.m. ET.

 

The Woodbine Mile, an event for horses age three-and-up, will be simulcast on MSG+ and MASN, while the Summer Stakes Presented by TVG will also air on MSG+.

 

A field of nine, headed by Wise Dan and Cityscape, is expected for the Woodbine Mile. Wise Dan, trained by Chuck Lopresti, who won last year’s race with Turallure, is coming off a smashing win in Saratoga’s Fourstardave. Cityscape, one of three European-based horses in the race, won the $5 million Dubai Duty Free back in March.

 

Handling the coverage for TVG will be Simon Bray and Paul LoDuca.

 

Also on Saturday’s schedule is the Grade II, $250,000 Natalma Stakes, a one-mile turf race for two-year-old fillies. Sunday’s program also features the Grade I, $500,000 Northern Dancer; the Grade II, $300,000 Canadian Stakes and the Grade III, $150,000 Ontario Derby. The Northern Dancer is a 1 and ½ mile turf race for horses three-and-up, the Canadian Stakes features fillies and mares age three-and-up going 1 and 1/8-miles on the turf and the Ontario Derby presents three-year-olds traveling 1 and 1/8 miles on Woodbine’s synthetic surface.  

 

“We look forward to covering this big weekend of racing from Woodbine, which, throughout the year, hosts some of North America’s most important events,” said Tony Allevato, TVG executive vice president. “With six stakes to be run, there will be lots of excitement and action for our viewers to enjoy.”
