2016 Woodbine Mile Contenders
The field has been set for the 2016 Woodbine Mile and while the race has drawn a field of eight, all eyes will be on champion Tepin as she takes on male rivals again and attempts to add another Grade 1 win to her impressive resume.
The overwhelming favorite at odds of 1-2 for trainer Mark Casse, Tepin has won her last seven races and is a perfect four for four this year. After capping off her Eclipse Award winning season in 2015 with a victory over the boys in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1), she went three for three before taking a trip to Royal Ascot where she stunned the world with a victory in the Queen Anne Stakes (G1). She has had three months to recover from that trip and has been training forwardly at Saratoga for her return to the races.
While her seven opponents will all need to run the race of their lives to dethrone the queen, Mutakayyef (GB) is the second choice at odds of 7-2 on the morning line. He will be making his North American debut and was last seen finishing a competitive third in Europe in the Juddmonte International Stakes (G1) and was a Group 2 winner over the summer. In addition to Mutakayyef (GB), Tepin will have to contend with French Group 1 winner Full Mast, a homebred for Juddmonte Farms who will be trying to prove he can contend with top competition domestically.
Here is the field for the 2016 Woodbine Mile along with morning line odds.
1. Tower of Texas, 20-1
2. Mutakayyef (GB), 7-2
3. Arod (IRE), 10-1
4. Glenville Gardens, 20-1
5. Full Mast, 12-1
6. Passion for Action, 20-1
7. Mr. Owen, 15-1
8. Tepin, 1-2
Did you know?
Wise Dan is the only horse to win The Woodbiine Mile and then the Breeders’ Cup Mile as he turned the trick in 2012. Perhaps the most memorable Woodbine Mile went to the gate in 1999. Quiet Reserve made a ton of noise when he paid the longest WIN price at $91.10 ($27.30 is next) and a $10,204.80 Triactor with Rob ‘n Gin in second ahead of Jim and Tonic – great horse names! Quiet Reserve would go on to finish last (14th) in the 1999 Breeders’ Cup Mile.
Anything can happen at the Woodbine Mile. Since 1997, just five of the seventeen post-time favorites have ended up in the Winners Circle. Wise Dan (2012 & 2013) plus Soaring Free (’04) Leroidesanimaux, (‘05 at a race record 124 pounds) and Shakespeare (’07 as a 6-year old) belong to that exclusive club.
