Selene - Take Two

Wednesday night racing at Woodbine got a lot more interesting this week as the Selene Stakes - Grade 3- was re-scheduled when wins blew away most of the races on Sunday.
The Selene is a race that has been won by some fancy fillies and, while an open event, it is also a major stepping stone on the journey to the Labatt Woobine Oaks next month.
The race is named for Lord derby's top mare, a stakes winner of 16 races overseas, Selene is the dam of the influential stallion Hyperion.
Morning lone favourite Top Notch Lady is already a Grade 3 winner in 2006, having taken the Bourbonette Stakes at Turfway Park and she was an even seventh in the prestigious Kentucky Oaks earlier this month.
Sam-Son Farm's promising filly Angel on Watch will take a lot of betting support and the daughter of Pulpit overcame a wide trip to win her season debut in Kentucky.

Turf racing should resume tonight with a 6 furlong allowance/optional claiming dash, the first race on the card.

Take a look at SPEEDY SANDY in the evening's 5th race. The daughhter of sprint champ Cherokee Run worked one furlong in a rapif :10.40 for a sale last spring and she's a full sister to a multiple sprint winner.
