Picks and Ponderings: Canadian International Day at Woodbine

It is not a stakes weekend at Hawthorne yet; those do not get underway until November.  So, this weekend, Paul Mazur and I are taking another figurative road trip.  This time, it is back to the Great White North for Canadian International Day at Woodbine.  Paul takes a look at the Canadian International Stakes (GI) and the Nearctic Stakes (GII); I dive into the E. P. Taylor Stakes (GI) and the Ontario Fashion Stakes (GIII).  The two Grade I affairs are both for the turf route set: the Canadian International is a mile and a half for open company, and the E. P. Taylor is a mile and a quarter for fillies and mares.  The Nearctic is an open-company turf sprint, and the Ontario Fashion is the lone polytrack stakes of the day, a sprint for fillies and mares.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, and see what we have to say about the big weekend of stakes at Woodbine this weekend.  Let us know in the comments what you think, or if you have any questions.
