Canadian Derby Saturday

In response to a recent post, the field for the Canadian Derby should be a strong group based on the 16 nominees. Entries will be taken Wednesday.
In addition to Queen's Plate winner EDENWOLD and Prince of Wales winner* SHILLELAGH SLEW, trainer Bobby Frankel could ship Ken and Sarah Ramsey's DUBAI GOLD, a colt who will love the 1 3/8 miles distance.There sould be not shortage of early pace in the 77th edition of the race (only 3 Plate winners have ventured to Alberta for this prestigious event). The fast improving MIGHTY CAHILL, from B.C., might be worth a look if entered.
Stay tuned for more Derby updates.


Local preps for the Woodbine Mile and Pattison Canadian International are on the sked for this weekend. The Play the King Stakes is seven furlongs on the turf and has attracted a solid noms list.
Sunday's Nijinsky Stakes is at 1 1/2 miles and should be a showcase for local hero JAMBALAYA.
