Sunday's 8th race (4:38pm ET) from Woodbine is the Grade I E.P. Taylor for fillies and mares traveling ten furlongs on the turf course.
#9 Princess Highway (5-1) came off the bench to finish an okay 7th of 13 in G1 Prix Vermeille Sept 16 and show finisher Solemia returned to upset the Arc. The KY-bred daughter of Street Cry cuts back from 12f and is 2-for-2 at this trip. She adds lasix and cruised to an easy G2 score at 10f the last time she went 2nd off the shelf.
#2 Pagera (20-1) beat today's morning line favorite Siyouma in March.
She cruised in a G3 marathon in Germany Sept 1 and runner-up Opera Gal
came back to romp in a Listed event at Ayr Sept 22. She sports the look
of a live longhsot under Peslier.
I liked #5 Dream Peace (7-2) in the G1 Flower Bowl and she was right there in a 3-horse blanket finish. She is back in 15-days and might take too much win action for Dominguez/Brown.
#3 Siyouma (3-1) exits a flat mile G1 tally in Great Britain but I have never been fond of euro's returning quickly and this one just raced 15-days ago. She is an underlaid contender.
The local G2 Canadian Stakes did not seem like a strong renewal so I will toss all of the horses exiting that heat (Stars to Shine, Barefoot Lady, Moment of Majesty, All Star Heart, Kapitale).
$20 to win #9
$4 Exacta Box 2-9 ($8)
$3 Exacta 2-9/3-5 ($12)
