Woodbine Mile: How Good Is Right One?

Trainer Christophe Clement, who has enjoyed much success at Woodbine over the years, is sending Right One for Sunday's Ricoh Woodbine Mile.


The five-year-old French-bred son of Anabaa has won three of his four North American outings this year, and comes into the Grade 1, $1 million turf classic fresh from a victory in the Grade 3 Jaipur, July 16 at Belmont Park, when he closed quickly from well back to win the seven furlong event by a head.


"You cannot change his running style," said Christophe Lorieul, long-time assistant to Clement.  "He's got a very good turn of foot, but usually he's at the back of the pack and just makes one run.  Usually, he's pretty effective at it.   Obviously, it's a little ambitious (moving up to Grade 1 company).  But the horse is doing well. The horse has done nothing wrong. He deserves a shot. That's why we are coming."  


Garrett Gomez, who has won the Woodbine Mile twice, will be aboard the Ghislaine Head-owned and bred Right One for the first time.  Gomez won the race in 2007 with Shakespeare and 2009 with Ventura.
