Irish-bred mare Kastoria will try to become just the sixth filly or mare to win the International since 1958. Trained by John Oxx, who last visited Woodbine in 1995 when he won the E.P. Taylor Stakes with Timarida for owner H.H. Aga Khan, the five-year-old daughter of Selkirk arrives from Ireland after defeating heavily-favoured Yeats in the Group 1, Irish St. Leger Stakes, September 16 at The Curragh, over one and three-quarter miles. Kastoria has won six of 11 career starts, with four seconds. She will be ridden by Mick Kinane, who scored with Ballingarry in the 2002 International.
Relaxed Gesture winning last year's Canadian International. He is back to defend his title this year.
