Catch filly 19th on BC list

Catch the Thrill, the dominating Princess Elizabeth Stakes winner, is no. 19 on the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies list and not likely to get into the championship race at Churchill Downs on Nov. 4.
despite being owned and bred by Sam-Son Farms - winner of 2 Breeders' Cup races in the past - and being a daughter of world class sire A.P. Indy and champion mare Catch the Ring AND having a 90 Beyer Figure from her Elizabeth score, Catch the Thrill was snubbed.
Okay, so maybe it's better for her that she not make the trip to Louisville and instead get ready for a 3yo campaign but former Woodbine VP if racing Chris Evans, who sat on the Breeders' Cup selection committee, was certainly missed.
So, Woodbine pins it's Cup 'hopes' on SKIP CDODE, an American-bred colt trained by Mark Casse who will compete in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Skip Code won the Grey Breeders' Cup Stakes earlier this month.
The Breeders' Cup attracted the most pre-entries since 2000 and Canadian-born owner J. Paul Reddam has the most entrants with 5, plus 2 he co-owns.

Woodbine slides into it's final seven weeks this week but not all that quietly - three stakes events are scheduled for Saturday.

Last night over a speedy Polytrack surface, the smaller barns of Sean Hall, John MacKenzie and Nick Detoro each collected two wins on the 8 race card and jockey Eurico Rosa Da Silva won three.
Tab the hot barns and the fresh horses and stay away from the big class droppers if you're playing the races from now through Dec. 10, the last day of the meeting.
