Queen's Plate Entries
Entries were drawn and post positions selected Thursday for the
Queen's Plate, the Canadian equivalent of the Kentucky Derby.
Shaws Creek, who got post 14, was made a lukewarm favorite at
3-1. Entries, post positions, past performances, and more.


North America Cup
The North America Cup at Woodbine, one of the most important races
on the continent for three year old pacers, will be run Saturday
night June 22nd. Get the entries, post positions, and more for the
big race.

Book Review:  Stud, Adventures in Breeding
by Kevin Conley. "The Kentucky Derby is often called the most exciting
two minutes in sports; Storm Cat is probably its most expensive thirty
seconds."  A great new book that gives an in-depth look at the world
of horse breeding.

Queen's Plate Barbecue
Part of Woodbine's Racing Festival, the Plate horses are paraded for
the crowd at a barbecue in the walking ring. Photos of 10 contenders
and their connections with comments. A unique and fun event.

Contest Winners
Congratulations to the winners of the "Three Strides Before the Wire"
and "The Perfect Ride" contests.  Watch for another book contest here
in a week or two!

'Easy' Trivia Questions
EARLY11 writes, "With the Queen's Plate coming up this weekend, here are
two questions with a Canadian / American connection.  1.  Who was the
only horse to win the Kentucky Derby and the Queen's Plate (the Derby
was a prep, hahaha)?  2.  Who was the only horse to win the Queen's
Plate and the Breeders Cup Classic?"

Good vs Great, FP vs Ruffian just the facts
TELEVIN writes, "The difference between good and great. FACT:  Ruffian
set or broke track/stake records EVERY race except for the one she died.
FP LOST the Fla Derby...Won the Wood by a head Won the Derby a bit over
a length zooming home in a 26 second last quarter ... lost the
Preakness a neck ... Lost the Belmont a length.  HARDLY greatness ...
lot of heart yes ... very nice horse yes but not even the best 3 year
old colt.  FACTS!!!"
