Canadian Bacon

If you expected this article to be about funny man John Candy and his final completed movie, I am sorry to disappoint you. Although, who can ever forget his wonderful roles in films such as Stripes, and Uncle Buck. He is missed. What an actor, how funny he was in Planes, Trains and Automobiles? But I digress, for today’s article is all about the huge weekend of racing at Woodbine Racetrack. Five graded stakes, and all of them on turf, are sure to bring back the sizzle to racing north of the border.

Today it will be the juveniles who take center stage with the running of the Grade 3 Natalma Stakes for the girls, and the $250,000 Summer Stakes for the boys.

Zipster, Let's hope you are right about Ronin's down!

No luck today, the filly was scratched and Ronin Dax came up a little empty in the stretch. I spoke with the owners and they and Valenzuela feel he did not like the soft turf at Woodbine. They remain high on him and will look for a dirt race next.

The Mile should be a very good race. I'm a big fan of Court Vision, so I'm hoping he comes back with a bang.
