The Two Bit Racing Stable's A Bit O'Gold, under Jono Jones, gutted out a close victory and then survived a claim of foul in Sunday's $329,300 Sky Classic Stakes (Can-II) at Woodbine.
Godolphin's Sulamani, one of the best turf horses in the world during the past three seasons, has been established as the 2-1 morning line favorite in an outstanding field of 11 for the $1.5 million Pattison Canadian International (Can-I) Sunday at Woodbine.
Sam-Son Farm's red and gold silks were in front as expected at the conclusion of the $275,250 Sky Classic Stakes (Can-II) Saturday at Woodbine, but the winning horse wasn't the prohibitive 3-10 favorite Strut the Stage.
Away from racing for 10 months with a stress fracture of the tibia, Strut the Stage has come back strongly in two starts. The talented Kentucky-bred will be difficult to beat in Saturday's $275,250 Sky Classic Stakes (Can-II) at Woodbine.
The featured $271,750 Sky Classic Stakes (Can-II) Sunday at Woodbine looked like a two-horse race on paper and on the tote board. But instead of Strut the Stage, the 1-2 favorite and multiple stakes-winning Mobil, at 2-1the contenders were 6-1 Bowman Mill and 24-1 outsider Lenny the Lender.
Rider Todd Kabel admits Mobil has mellowed a bit over the past few months, but on Monday at Woodbine, the bay colt proved he's still as tough as nails when it comes to taking a bite out of the competition.
