Canadians plentiful in the south

Woodbine trainer Nick Gonzalez won yesterday's first race at Gulfstream with WYATT'S WOMEN to add to the successes of the Ontarians at tracks south of the border in the early days of 2007.
At the Fair Grounds, Emma-Jayne Wilson rode to two second-place finishes including one on Windfields Farms' UNTO THE HILLS and trainer Mike Mareina won an allowance race with NOT IN MY HOUSE.
In action today are Queen's Plate winner EDENWOLD (Hal's Hope at Gulfstream), HERE TO PLEASE (Count Fleet Stakes at Aqueduct), SLAM BAMMY (Mr. Prospector S., Gulfstream) and MATZOH TOGA (Louisians Breeders' Cup, Fair Grounds), just to name a few.

Worth a look in Gulfstream's 5th race is TOUCH A PRINCE, a Canadian-bred by Touch Gold who had some solid prep times at Woodbine this fall. The colt's only other sibling, Kapazunder, was very highly regarded and did win his debut last year at Woodbine but pulled up lame and has not raced since.
