Neil asks what backstretch insiders are saying about last year's 2yo champ Edenwold - will he make the Plate?
The plan is to certainly aim this colt to the Plate and he had some much-needed R & R after last year's long season. He is currently in training at Woodbine.
Milhouse asks for a longshot and best bet pick for Woodbine's opening today tomorrow...hmmmm...well Golden Horn, who should go off in the 8 to 1 range in the 8th race, is coming out of a super race at Santa Anita - a race that has produced 4 horses that won their next starts.
Best bet is a little tougher - how about a fresh Kendi Lou in the 3rd race for underrated trainer Stacey Cooper or Flashinthesky in the 10th for trainer Sam DisPasquale?
Judy asks, "will Bob Baffert ever race a horse at Woodbine" and this corner can only say, let's see what happens on Saturday when Wanna Runner, the 2nd favourite in the Plate winterbook, runs in the Winstar Derby in New Mexico. The connections have to know he is not a Kentucky Derby-quality horse so why not point him to the $1 million Plate? Of course, the ongoing rumour is that Baffert dislikes Woodbine - let's find out how much.
