You probably are aware of the performance by Modern Games in Saturday's Grade 1 Woodbine Mile, where the 3-year-old colt became the one to beat in the Breeders' Cup Mile.

With William Buick aboard, the Charlie Appleby trainee covered the one mile on turf in 1:32.77 after taking charge in the stretch to win by 5 1/4 lengths.

The trip earned him a 111 Brisnet Speed Rating and a 112 Beyer Speed Figure, according to Daily Racing Form. As David Grening of DRF noted, that's the highest Beyer for a turf runner this year.

Earlier on the Woodbine card, Buick rode Mysterious Night to a victory in the Summer (G1) for Appleby, earning a 100 Brisnet rating and 85 Beyer.

Among juveniles, Curly Jack, winner of the Iroquois (G3) at Churchill Downs on Saturday, earned an 86 Brisnet rating and 78 Beyer. Fun and Feisty, winner of the Pocahontas (G3), earned an 86 Brisnet rating and 75 Beyer.

But it was Brad Cox's impressive maiden winner Loggins who earned the highest Beyer by a 2-year-old over the weekend, picking up an 89.

Here are the figures for the weekend's graded-stakes winners, with the highest Brisnet Speed Ratings, Beyer Speed Figures from Daily Racing Form and TimeformUS Speed Figures, where available.
