The 'Main' Event

Woodbine's third day of the 50th racing season came up lighter than many would have expected with just nine races and 77 entrants. The Woodstock Stakes prep, which figured to feature stakes winner Vibank, did not fill with enough entries and thus was not used.
Saturday's feature is an optional claiming/allowance race for non-winners of 2 'other than' or claiming $62,500 and it is a dash that features some serious speed.
Old-timer Chis's Bad Boy, now trained bby Francesca Armata (formerly trained by Vito Armata) has the rail post in the nine-horse field but certainly all attention will be paid to MAIN EXECUTIVE, a gelding who has lost only once in his career.
The Bruno Bros. Farms' homebred makes his first start of 2006 but so do all his rivals except for GREAT ADDICTION, the Mike Doyle-trainee who was 8th in his latest appearance in a five-furlong turf dash at Gulfstream in February, a race that has turned out to be an ultra-key race (three horses emerged from that event to win their next starts).
Considering how the Doyle horses have performed to this point in the Woodbine meeting, Great Addition could be the play at generous odds.

    Jen,

    Opening Day for the Spring Meet at Keeneland is Friday. I noticed that Nottawasaga is running for trainer Eric Coatrieux and the Chiefswood Stables. What can you tell us about that horse? Also from your experience with the Spring Keeneland meet, how have Canadian horses done? I Know that during the fall meet they have done pretty well. Is the Spring meet for the Canadian horses more of a stepping stone for races down the line at Woodbine? How do horses who have started at Keeneland traditionally faired when making subsequent starts at Woodbine?
