The experienced Paladin Bay heads a field of six sophomore Canadian-bred fillies that will tangle in the $250,000 Bison City Stakes, the second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown for fillies at Woodbine July 13. All will carry 121 pounds.
Two starts back, the Sligo Bay filly won the Selene Stakes (Can-III) at Woodbine at the same 1 1/16-mile distance at which the Bison City will be run. Paladin Bay also prevailed in the Ontario Lassie Stakes and the Princess Elizabeth Stakes last season at Woodbine, where she has made all of her 12 lifetime starts. The four-time winner has earned $560,397.
Paladin Bay comes off a fourth-place finish as the 2-1 favorite in the series opener, the Woodbine Oaks, Presented by Budweiser June 15. Flattening out after chasing the pace into the stretch, she finished 8 1/2 lengths behind Lexie Lou, who returned to win the prestigious Queen's Plate over males July 6.
