Snow, Ice and soon, a winter nap

Snow and freezing rain for most of the day here in the northwest corner of Peel.
The last 5 days of the Woodbine season are on tap - big fields, lots of races and oodles and oodles of class droppers. Trainer SID ATTARD, who is battling with Reade Baker top the most wins on the year, is plunging so many of his runners in claiming price - the whole thing is just one big head scratch!
Betting on these races on the often hard-to-predict Polytrack (with temps dropping to below 0 Celsius who knows how the Poly will handle it) will be tougher than usual.
No stakes race on Saturday because the meet was extended the extra week this summer because of Polytrack construction. The final stake of the year, the 1 3/4 mile Valedictory is on Sunday.

Tonight, horses with sharp recent workout times to note include GOZO PARK, a first-time starter in the 3rd race who is a half-brother to an undefeated 2yo stakes winner of 2005 and FULL HOUSE, a filly in the 5th race who adds blinkers for trainer Mark Casse.
