Picks and Ponderings: Canadian International Stakes Recap

Today was the last of Woodbine’s flagship race days: Canadian International Day!

Anchoring the card was a pair of Grade I turf routes: the Canadian International for open company, and the E. P. Taylor for fillies and mares.  The Canadian International went to a shipper; the E. P Taylor went to a horse familiar to anyone who followed Arlington this summer.

Sprinters also had their day in the Nearctic (GII) and the Ontario Fashion (GIII).  As with the two Grade Is, neither of these went to favourites, either.  There was a minor upset in the Ontario Fashion…and a big upset in the Nearctic from a horse with championship credentials.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, and catch up on a classy day of racing at Woodbine!
