What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Woodbine Mile (G1)...

After her neck winning thriller over Theyskens’ Theory in Saturday’s Garden City Stakes (Gr. I), I began to ponder about all of the grey and roan thoroughbreds out there today. The greats usually come few and far between but last couple years have proven different as there are a handful of them whic...Read More
As autumn nears, people anticipate cooler temperatures and the changing of the leaves, just as horseplayers look forward to the Breeders’ Cup and the prep races that precede it. This Sunday, Woodbine Race Course in Toronto, Canada hosts the $1,000,000 Ricoh Woodbine Mile contested at 1-mile on the t...Read More

  • arazi · Good article. Hmmm.... does not say much for Turallure or Courageous Cat. Any guesses why Woodbine Mile runners have been so unsuccessful at the BC? · 1023 days ago ·
  • Winplacsho · I think its mainly because the Europeans have a high success rate, but also I don't think many trainers want to ship their horses just for a prep & then ship them again for the Breeders Cup. · 1023 days ago ·
Turallure, confidently handled by Julien Leparoux, came storming down the outside to nail favoured Courageous Cat and Right One in a thrilling three-horse finish to capture the $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile.Read More
Charles Lopresti trainee Turallure stormed down the grandstand side of the E.P. Taylor Turf Course to win the 15th edition of the $1 million Woodbine Mile.Read More

  • mshutty · Court Vision has won only one race this year and it was the 2010 edition of the Woodbine Mile. He's another year older and other horses are improving at the right time. I like the Side Glance but Courageous Cat appears to be the one to beat. Turallure and Right One deserve some consideration underneath or even as possible upsetters for the win · 1026 days ago ·

Fifteen years ago, Skip Away won the last edition of the Woodbine Million, ushering in a new September event at Woodbine. Was the switch to the Woodbine Mile an evolution or a devolution from its long-lost predecessor? Read More
  • zatt · I loved the old Molson Million, Prized, Izvestia, Peteski, Dramatic Gold, and of course Skip Away, but the Woodbine Mile has also been an excellent race, and fits in with Woodbine's turf emphasis in the fall. Having said that, this year's field does look a bit weaker than usual. · 1028 days ago ·

Looking at some PPs...Turallure looks solid as well. Right One and Turallure are my bets.
Six-year-old Court Vision will try to defend his crown when the Grade 1, $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile field goes to the post on Sunday. He'll be racing for a new owner, Spendthrift Farm, who purchased him last month, and a new trainer, Dale Romans.  But he'll have the same rider, Robby Albara...Read More

  • woodbine · Court Vision beat a better field than this last year. The Usual QT, who should have won last year, is days better than most of this unheralded bunch. Court Vision's lack of recent form is the problem Sunday. · 1028 days ago ·
  • jinlie01 · Right One with G. Gomez looks solid. · 1028 days ago ·
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 fres...Read More
An expert in orienteering would have had trouble tracking down Kara's Orientation in his most recent start, a victory in the Grade 2 Sky Classic Stakes. The dark bay colt opened up a 17-length lead under jockey Emile Ramsammy down the backstretch of the mile and a quarter turf tilt and cruised to th...Read More
Forte Dei Marmi, named for a sea town in northern Tuscany, is hoping to make a splash in the Grade 1 Ricoh Woodbine Mile. The Selkirk-Frangy gelding won four of five races in 2010 for trainer Luca Cumani, but has yet to find the winner's circle in six starts this season. "He was running in lesser ra...Read More
Trainer Charles Lopresti has never been to Canada, nor has he ever been represented by a starter here at Woodbine.But Lopresti will be looking to correct those oversights this week as he was scheduled to check in Wednesday to put the finishing touches on Turallure’s preparations for the Woodbine Mil...Read More
