Sizzling Sunday

Whew, it sure became steamy and hot in Toronto all of a sudden with this afternoon likely being a big test for horsea and humans as the temperature reaches to 30 Celcius.

Yesterday's Lady Angela Stakes was won by LONDON SNOW, Fred Martin's 3-year-old filly by Trajectory, the 3rd stakes winner for that Gardiner Farms stallion.
Apparently London Snow, a 2-time sprint winner this year, is headed to the Woodbine Oaks in just two weeks.

Today's featured Connaught Cup has lured two intriguing invaders including the remarkably talented REMARKABLE NEWS. Trainer Angel Penna rarely messes around when shipping to Canada and this 4-time winning colt won a key race last Keeneland last time. This is his first stakes attempt.

Two-year-olds take up races 1 and 2. Claiming fillies in the first event travel 4 1/2 furlongs and the attractive FORTUNATE HEART rallied nicely in a 2 furlong race 8 days ago.

Maiden allowance boys compete in race 2 and while there are only 6 entered, several have been the subject of backstretch whispers. On the Florida 2-year-old watch, BLUELICK, who figures to be one of the longshots, worked quickly for a sale and is well related. He also has the hot-riding Steve Bahen on board.

At Churchill GRAND CHEROKEE worked quickly for one-furlong twice at a February sale in Florida - :10.80 each time. Woodbine had a sharp debut winner by the same sire, Cherokee Run, last week.

    All I can say about today's Connaught Cup is wow! What an amazing finish. The race of the year at Woodbine so far. How nice is it to have stakes action back on the best turf course in North America?
