Tonight is the start for a big weekend of stakes races and begins with the $150 Molson Pace Invitational. This is the second year where the Molson Pace is being run as an Invitational.
One has to love Foiled Again, but at 10 years old sooner or later time catches up. I will be looking to beat him.
12th Pace - $150,000; Molson Pace - Invitational
1 - State Treasurer (7-5. Christoforu) - Last year's champion looking to repeat. Reels off three preferred at WEG. May be one to beat.
2 - Bettors Edge (8-1, Henry) - Draws needed post relief. Threat with a trip.
3 - Bandolitio (5-1, Macdonald) - Steps up slightly. Must get away well to be a threat here.
4 - Aprentince Hanover (7-1. Jamieson) - Finishes second to early favorite State Treasurer. Worth a look..
5 - Dancin Yankee (9-2, Miller) - Riding two race win streak. Expect another good effort.
6 - P H Supercam (3-1, Bartlett) - Road problems in last. May face same this week.
7 - Foiled Again (4-1, Gingras) - May be able to handle this field but no one beats Father Time. Sooner or later, time will catch him. Draws the extreme outside.
8 - Captive Audience (10-1, Filion) - Second tier will compromise chances if the fave doesn't get away first.
