winning the 2005 Woodbine Mile
RESULTS ARE HERE
On Thursday afternoon, entries were taken and post positions were drawn for the tenth running of the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile presented by Bell, a major prep for the Breeders' Cup Mile at Churchill Downs in November. Thirteen older horses will enter the gate on Sunday afternoon looking for the winner's share of the $1 million purse, traveling 1 mile around one turn of Woodbine's E.P. Taylor Turf Course. This year the name returns to the original Woodbine Mile name it had for the first two runnings, after seven years as the Atto Mile.

Jockey Emma-Jayne Wilson who will ride Captain Kurt and guest drawmaster Ricky Williams of the Toronto Argonauts CFL team.
The local hope is Sam-Son Farm's Shoal Water, who is the second-leading money winner in the field with $808,864. Trained by Mark Frostad, six-year-old son of Smart Strike is the only Canadian-bred in the field. Although he was injured and didn't race last year, he has won five of 18 career starts and has competed in virtually every important race at Woodbine during his career.
Post time for the Woodbine Mile will be 5:06 pm ET on Sunday. The race can be seen at simulcast locations across North America, with The Score carrying a special 1 1/2 hour live telecast across Canada from 4:00 to 5:30 pm ET.
