A sensational $1 million Grade race for those who may have missed it! It kicks off the start of the Canadian Triple Crown.

17-horse field.

Video: June 26, 2011 Woodbine, Ontario, Queen's Plate @ 1 1/4mi (http://www1.drf.com/replays/savedreplays.jsp?RACE=1788)

It remains to be seen if the winner will race in the 2nd leg - the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes on the dirt at Fort Erie July 17.

Alas while audibly enthusiastic the crowd was actually a fraction of what the Kentucky Derby pulls in: approx 25,000 people on hand vs. 145,000

The filly that won is owned by our neighbours. They have a beautiful facility across the road from us and are very nice people who treat their horses well. Happy to see their horse succeed!

I hope she comes to the Fort! In '99 we had Milwaukee Appeal stabled in our barn, big beautiful filly. Love rooting for the girls up here :)
