Mother and her Nature

The wild and wacky summer weather continued in T.O. last night when a sharp storm roared through southern Ontario and wiped out the last 3 races at Woodbine.
The cancellation of those races was the fourth such occurence since the horses moved to the inner dirt (harness) track while Polytrack is being installed.
The bizarre weather in the last month has been almost comical, perhaps not to the folks at Woodbine.

WEEKEND NOTES - Heading into the looooong weekend (racing Saturday, Sunday AND Monday), watch for Justin Stein on Saturday, his first day as a journeyman rider. Also, Steve Bahen is out of town to ride classy, old LE CINQUIEME ESSAI in a stakes event.
Sunday, last year's Horse of the Year A BIT O'GOLD will parade in the paddock from 12 to 1 and fans can meet his trainer, Catherine Day Phillips and jockey, Jono Jones.
