2016 Woodbine Mile Picks and Preview

Category : News - Fri 16/09/2016 - 18:50 EDT

Players trying to look beyond prohibitive favorite Tepin in the September 17 Woodbine Mile will surely have their work cut out for them as the superstar mare tackles seven rivals on the grass.

Tepin, a superstar filly with Hall of Fame credentials, has reeled off 8 consecutive graded stakes wins and appears poised to dominate her male counterparts as the 1/2 morning line favoirte. Tepin dominated the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile laset October and accomplished a historic feat shipping to England in her last start to take the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes by storm. 

Mutakayyef (7/2), will make his first start in North America after a successful and consistent 13-race career in England where the five year-old son of champion Sea the Stars never finished off the board, winning three races to go with 7 runner-up finishes and 3 thirds. This runner appears the main danger, but likely doesn’t possess the class or talent of the top one. Arod (10/1) looms a logical contender for a minor award.
