Old and the Young on Monday/Tuesday

Crisper air, less daylight and the start of school and football - mus be yearling sales time in Toronto.
The sale kicks off Tuesday at 3 p.m. with a yearling selling on behalf of LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society prior to hip no. 1. The filly is by Whiskey Wisdom and is offered by Gail Wood, agent.
Pedigrees of yearlings may get a boost today as six yearling sales stakes load up the Woodbine card, the 5th day of Polytrack.
Attractions today include big ole BARBEAU RUCKUS, the 7yo who is seeking his third Elgin Stakes score and a bunch of Bob Tiller trainees including 2yo stars MIDNIGHT SHADOW and SPREAD THE NEWS.

On Sunday, the highly regarded giant baby, MIKE FOX led all the way to win his debut in the day's final event, an off-the-turf race that went at 1 mile and 70 yards. The son of Giant's Causeway was sure impressive even if his Beyer Figure of 59 was not.
Another debut winner on the card was Krz n' Flashy, who put up a 55 Beyer Figure over the speedy Poly surface.
