Saturday fun

Okay, so Woodbine's featured Lady Angela Stakes (Ontario-sired 3-year-old fillies) is about as uninspiring a race as one could imagine, maybe a strong performance from one of the gals will emerge late today.
More interesting at Woodbine is the last leg of the Win 4 for 2-year-old fillies. The one entrant with experience is MY LIST but she's back in just 2 weeks and there is lots of buzz about some of the other gals.
Buzz aside (the Roger Attfield-trained Golden Wahine is expected to attract attention), Frank Passero-trainee BLACK TEA (first crop of Orientate) worked fast for a 2-year-old sale in the winter but she did not sell at the auction.

At Churchill, The 2-year-old filly OCTAVE, from the Todd Pletcher barn, looks ultra tough in the 6th race but you might want to consider MISS SHIPLEY as a longshot possibility.

She's from the 1st crop of champion 2-year-old Johnannesburg and her dam is a 1/2 sister to multiple stakes winner Suave and the second dam is Grade 1 winner Urbane. Oh yes, this gal worked one-furlong in :10 3/5 for a sale in March so she has some speed.
