And back at Woodbine..

It's been snowing some lovely flurries today and the temperatures are holding steady in the single digits (Celcius).
Polytrack has become a dustbowl with dramatic kickback this afternoon during a 10-race card that featured 2 stakes races that were originally carded for last Sunday. And would you believe that Polytrack today has been very, very kind to front runners? Yes folks, it appears to be a genuine bias on Polytrack.
The incredible JUST RUSHING won his seventh consecutive race in the Labeeb, leading all the way for Tucci Stables, trainer Sid Attard and jockey Emma-Jayne Wilson. One of the best claims in recent years and possibly a finalist for top older horse.
Later, ARCH HALL, owned by Eugene Melnyk, sat parked a few lengths behind the pace and split horses to win the Bunty Lawless Stakes for Ontario-sired older horses, a rare rallying winner on the card. Arch Hall is also a possibility for top older male in Canada.
The best horses in the world will soon be in front of us for watching and betting but there are some pretty good ones at your local racetrack too.

    Hi Jen
    I wish you had a set article to write for the paper. I enjoy horse racing - can't stand the slots (no brains there!). What a thrill it is to actually pick a horse (or an exacta!) and have a winner. I've been to Sarotoga several years in a row with my hubby and love it there.
    What are your picks for Breeder's Cup?
