On Sunday, a classy field of twelve will go to post in the 70th running of the Grade 1 Pattison Canadian International, a 1 1/2 mile trip around the E.P. Taylor Turf Course for a purse of $2 million Canadian (just over $2 million US.) For a full list of the entries for the day, including the International, check here. Daily Racing Form has free past performances for the Canadian International.
2006 Canadian International winner Collier Hill
Top local hope Sky Conqueror is the 4-1 second choice and drew post 4. The son of Sky Classic has 2 wins in 6 starts this year, including the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (G1) at Churchill Downs and the Northern Dancer Breeders' Cup Turf (G2) at home at Woodbine. Jockey Javier Castellano, who was aboard for the win on Kentucky Derby day, gets the call. Trainer Darwin Banach said, We might be in a position where he will be overlooked after finishing third in the Nijinsky (G2) and then 8th (in the Woodbine Mile). It's a different role for him to be in. Usually everyone is thinking about his late jock and when he'll come charging. But he's not the type to overlook for a minute.
Sky Conqueror, winner of the Northern Dancer Breeders' Cup will be one of the favorites
Safari Queen will be one of the favorites in the E.P. Taylor Stakes.
Closing out the stakes action on Sunday will be the $500,000 Nearctic Stakes (G2) for older horses sprinting 6 furlongs on the turf. Castle Heights is the lone local hope in the field of 8, taking on Baltimore Turf Sprint winner Heros Reward and Jaipur Stakes(G3) winner Ecclesiastic.
