We kind of stole her at the (Woodbine Select Yearling) sale (for just $20,000). She's a classy little girl. She's a real tryer; she's got some heart." Tiller added he may try her on the turf next time out.

Before the Lady Angela Stakes, there was a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony (left), with Woodbine CEO Jim Lawson doing the honours, accompanied by Jonathan Zammit, vice president of Thoroughbred racing operations, Tom Via, chief operating officer, and retired Hall of Fame jockey Sandy Hawley.

When the field broke from the gate parked at the 1/8 pole (right), track announcer Robert Geller said, "A new chapter in the history of Woodbine, the inner turf underway." During a press conference earlier in the day, Lawson said that the new course features a fiber growing medium and drainage system similar to that used in Hong Kong, so it can hold up in wet weather better than the main E.P. Taylor turf course on the outside.

Winning jockey Eurico Rosa da Silva said, "It feels super. The turf is like carpet. The turn is so good. I feel like it's going to be a small, little park for me to play there, it's really, really nice. I have a great feeling."
