Woodbine Selections – April 27, 2019

My selections only managed one winner during the Friday afternoon card, so we’ll be looking for a bounce back performance on Saturday. Here’s how my selections have fared so far this season:

    Interesting picks Alex. My selections are similar with a few differences. Looking forward to being at Woodbine today and being very profitable. Best of luck!

    I would be remiss if I didn’t make a comment regarding the upcoming Jacques Cartier Stakes (Grade III). For some reason, this race (in particular) never seems to disappoint. Have you seen the nominations list for that race? It is a ridiculous collection of talent indeed!

    If the Woodbine officials get it right, you could potentially have: 1) “Call me Wally” – always a threat in any race with tremendous speed; 2) “Circle of Friends” – Now as a 5 year old, has entered his peak prime and almost broke the track record last week for the 5 furlong distance. I noticed he has added some serious muscle and looks to be in peak form; 3) “Curlin’s Honor” – A personal favourite of mine….. He is the $1.5 million horse. I watched him win the Woodstock Stakes last year with ease in a time of 1:08.85. Now that he is 4 years old, he is more mature and stronger than last year. There is no limit to what he is capable of achieving; 4) “Extravagant Kid” – Pushed Pink Lloyd to the limit last year in this very same race. Pink Lloyd had to break the track record in order to beat him; 5) “Ikerrin Road” – World Class….he proved it last year in the Kennedy Road Stakes (Grade II); 6) “Pink Lloyd” – Simply the greatest Canadian sprinting horse of all time and my favourite horse of all time. As a 7 year old, there is some question as to whether age has caught up to him but if Marten Lake can have an outstanding season last year (as a 7 year old) then why can’t he? My money is still on Pink for this race; 7) “Yorkton” – Turning into a beast and at 5 years old has entered his peak prime as well. World class and always a threat. Honourable mention to: “Sable Island” – Very fast horse who is capable of turning heads.

    There you have it. If the “Big 7” all qualify for this race, you have the makings of the greatest Canadian sprinting stakes race of all time (in terms of a group of talent). The hockey equivalent would be having a skills competition between: Gretzky, Lemieux, Yzerman, Sakic, Robitaille, Matthews and McDavid (all in their prime). How does one pick a winner in a race like this?…….HA!

    It should be lots of fun. Keep up the great work!
