Woodbine Oaks


What the Nation is saying about the Woodbine Oaks...

Dixie Strike doesn't have to be at her best to win the Selene. But she could also run a careeer race and still lose. Either way, it's an important prep for more lucrative dances down the road.Read More
Queen's Plate and Oaks champion Inglorious failed to notch her first graded stakes win on Sunday in the $250,000 Selene Stakes over her home track -- a surface she had previously been unbeaten over.Read More
  • yukichan · I was rather shocked that Inglorious did not fire ... she was bumped around in the stretch, but it was rather minor and as your wrote, a true champ at the top of her game should have finished much closer, if not first. It makes me wonder if something is not amiss with her? · 934 days ago ·
Last Sunday's Wonder Where Stakes was won by a filly that performed well in the first two jewels of the Triple Tiara, yet she returned more than $11. Could Breeders' yield same type of horse? Read More
  • zatt · I have not handicapped this yet, Adam ... who is going to take to turf? · 987 days ago ·
  • Woodbine · I don't think there are a lot of questions with who will or won't handle turf. Most have been on and have handled it well in maiden or allowance wins. Obviously Pender Harbour has not. He's Kris s line on top and Northern Dancer on bottom. Even if he takes to turf, the distance or the regression may get better of him. Seawatch also a turf enigma. Woodman could go either way, no? · 985 days ago ·
Inglorious became just the fifth filly in Canadian racing history to capture both the Woodbine Oaks and the Queen's Plate.Read More

  • Woodbine · Lots of debate on Twitter concerning where Inglorious should run next - Prince of Wales against boys or Graded Stakes company at Saratoga, such as Alabama. It will be interesting to see. · 1024 days ago ·

The Plate Trial Stakes winner Check Your Soul was made the lukewarm 3-1 morning line favorite for Sunday’s $1 million Queen’s Plate. He could make it a historic day for trainer Roger Attfield. Read More
  • AndyScoggin · Check Your Soul sure looked amazing in the Plate Trial, as did Inglorious in the Oaks! What are your minimum odds to bet Check Your Soul? · 1026 days ago ·
  • cugel the clever · Check Your Soul certainly had the most impressive prep race. He and Inglorous raced the same day, at the same distance, only one race apart. CYS won his race more impressively and in a faster time. But, I don't think the likely pace scenario will help either of them. The best speed in the race, Pender Harbour, is fresh and rapidly improving and if he can get away on the lead with moderate to slow fractions, he'll steal the race. · 1026 days ago ·
Check Your Soul and Queen'splatekitten enter Sunday's Queen's Plate off impressive scores in their respective preps, the Plate Trial and the Marine. Over the past 20 years, does the winner of one have an edge over the winner of the other? Keep reading to find out. Read More
  • BrianZipse · Interesting information, Adam. In the end, I think it comes down to who is the better horse, and this year it looks like the Plate Trial winner is better than the Marine victor. Rooting for the filly, but Check Your Soul is the horse to beat. · 1031 days ago ·
  • mshutty · Terrific analysis, Adam and I love the insight gained by digging into the history of the Plate Preps! · 1030 days ago ·
The Winterbook favorite for the Queen's Plate, Inglorious puts her undefeated Woodbine record on the line in the 1 1/8-mile Woodbine Oaks.Read More
  • zatt · I have been a big fan since Inglorious broke her maiden in a stakes race last fall, and I like her chances in the Woodbine Oaks tomorrow, but I must admit, it came up tough. Obviously Bear It's Time and Roxy Gap are strong fillies, but Marketing Mix looks especially intriguing to me. · 1048 days ago ·
A field of nine will go postward Sunday in the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks, the most prestigious race in the country for Canadian-bred three-year-old fillies. Post time for the 56th edition of the 1 1/8-mile classic over Woodbine's Polytrack is 5:16 pm (EDT). All fillies carry 121 pounds. Also on Sunday'...Read More
The horse racing world, much like the rest of the planet, may have been spared total Armageddon on May 21, but if you were near Woodbine this past Saturday, you still may have felt the ground shake a bit. This tremor was the sound of three-year-old Queen’splatekitten thundering down the Woodbine str...Read More

  • arazi · Adam, welcome to HRN! This is great stuff! It seems like Inglorious is loaded with talent. Do you think we've seen the best of her? · 1058 days ago ·
It couldn’t have happened to nicer folks. That was the phrase heard over and over on Sunday following an exciting afternoon of racing at Woodbine. And that’s not to say that the rest of the contenders in the Budweiser Woodbine Oaks were any less congenial in the build up to the race, but there was s...Read More
In just one year as a trainer, 28-year-old Carolyn Costigan has learned almost a lifetime of horse racing knowledge. That education came to fruition yesterday at Woodbine when Costigan sent out her father Robert’s filly Roan Inish to win the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks, the most important race for Canadi...Read More
The U.S. shipper Embur's Song took Woodbine by storm May 22, when she won an allowance race in near track-record time, and she should be the prohibitive favorite Sunday in the 55th running of the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks. The nine-furlong Oaks is one of two preps for the July 4 Queen's Plate on Sunday...Read More
Things are looking up for Woodbine Oaks contender Resentless.The Tracjectory filly had a brilliant beginning to her campaign when zipping through the Fury Stakes in a rapid 1:21.66 defeating Roan Inish by five lengths. The win should have been followed by a prep race and a series of works to ready t...Read More
