I like Famous Name to win the Woodbine Mile. He's a fantastic colt that's finished in the money in 17 of 19 lifetime starts. One of his two out of money finishes was recently at Leopardstown in Ireland. In the 2010 G1 Irish Champion Stakes. Where Famous Name ran 5th behind some great horses. He's much better at a mile, and I believe trying 10 furlongs against the caliber of horses that he raced in the Irish Champion Stakes may have been just a little beyond him. He was beaten by Cape Blanco. The best middle distance 3yr.old in Europe, IMO. Winner of the 2010 Dante Stakes, Irish Derby, and Irish Champion Stakes. Also ran 2nd in the 2010 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. 2nd was Rip Van Winkle. Who had just won the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes at York. 3rd was Twice Over. Who had just been beaten a nose by Rip Van Winkle in the Juddmonte International Stakes, and also won the 2010 G1 Coral Eclipse. The 4th horse that finished ahead of Famous Name was Sea Lord. The highest rated handicap horse in Great Britain. That had won 5 races in a row before the Irish Champion Stakes. Including the G3 Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury. But Famous Name had reeled off 3 straight stakes wins at Leopardstown himself before losing in the Irish Champion Stakes. At worst, this horse will finish in the money, guaranteed. So an across the board bet at a minimum is definitely in order with Famous Name. But I think he'll actually win the Woodbine Mile.

  • mdracing69 · Famous Name is definitely a threat medlocke. I like your bold selection of Crowded House mshutty. I can definitely see him in the top three at a price. humphrey, I liked Court Vision as a longshot in the BC Mile last year but I am not too keen on him at 7-2 in this spot. Interesting race. · 2312 days ago
