Saturday’s 3rd race from Woodbine is the $135,000 Ontario Racing Stakes for 2-year-olds dashing five furlongs on the turf course (Post Time - 2:16 p.m. ET).

#3 SKY’S NOT FALLING (5-1) is interesting at a hint of a price with Luis Contreras in the saddle. He stalked and smartly scored in his dirt sprint bow at Delaware Park, and was a solid 3rd in the Hansel Stakes vs. Virginia-breds second time out. He switched to turf in the Skidmore Stakes at Saratoga and was best of the rest in 3rd in a solid enough effort Aug. 21. Dam has tossed two turf winners and Michael Trombetta is sending out live runners at Woodbine.
#4 Amsden (8-5) set a strong pace and kept on going as the heavy favorite in his Colonial Downs debut July 28, and the 2-3 finishers were next-out winners. The $350k son of American Pharaoh should make his presence felt throughout.
#5 Ready to Repeat (9-5) fired in all four outings and I like his early-pressing versatility. He is also entered in Sunday’s Summer Stakes (G1).
