Woodbine is known for some quality racing. This weekend will be no different. I can’t wait until Sunday, and I would advise you to download your data and be ready.

On Sunday, there are some great races. Here are a few runners that need a big look against the data for Woodbine.

Let us begin with Race #4 and go to #5 – Forever Together (9-5). This mare looks the part, and Julien Leparoux is in the saddle for Jonathon Sheppard. She was a beaten favorite, and has been away from the races since early August. She is 9/9 on the weeds ITM, and should extend her record on this day.  You will need to see where she fits in the tiers to get a better hold of how to maximize your value.

The $1 million Woodbine Mile separates the pretenders from the contenders.  It is Race #10 on the day, and you should focus on #5 Bribon (5-2). Bribon has the services of Alan Garcia, and he should have a great weekend with New York on Saturday, and Woodbine on Sunday.

The six-year-old gelding by Mark of Esteem looks to be able to get the job done… This will be his second start off a layoff, and that always attracts bettors’ attention. After a brief layoff, and a solid comeback victory, this guy looks ready to bring his “A” game to the table. The distance seems to fit, and the rider is doing well. Trainer Robert Ribaudo and Garcia have teamed to win 52% on the year. The numbers don’t lie, and you will want to use other top tiered runners to get your exotics in place.

As always, don’t leave home without your data, and be sure to be ready to fire. There is plenty of money on the line, and you can bet they will all be ready to run.

Good luck!
