Amis Gizmo Tops Thirteen Contenders for $1 Million Queen’s Plate

Category : News - Thu 30/06/2016 - 12:41 EDT

On Sunday, Woodbine will host the $1 million Queen’s Plate Stakes, Canada’s most prestigious race. Restricted to horses foaled in Canada, the classic mile and a quarter contest has drawn a field of thirteen three-year-olds.

Trainer Josie Carroll will saddle two horses in the race including the favorite Amis Gizmo, tabbed at odds of 3-1 on the morning line. A chestnut son of Giant Gizmo, he is a half brother to graded stakes winner Amis Flatter and has won five of his six starts. Last time out, he won the Plate Trial in preparation for this race and has been training forwardly since then. Luis Contreras will be aboard and they will break from post position ten.

Leavem in Malibu a star on the rise

Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 is Leavem in Malibu for trainer Mark Casse.  A bay son of Malibu Moon, he has won two of his three starts and will be stepping up to stakes competition for the first time. After a third-place finish in his debut, he broke his maiden in his next start and followed that up with an allowance victory. All three starts have come in his home country. Gary Boulanger will be aboard and they will break from post position four.

Scholar Athlete stepping back up in class

Also in the field at morning line odds of 12-1 is longshot Scholar Athlete for trainer Graham Motion. A gelded son of Einstein (BRZ), he was purchased for $85,000 by West Point Thoroughbreds as a juvenile and has won two of his eight starts. He was last seen winning an allowance race at Belmont Park after a pair of poor efforts against stakes competition. Jose Ortiz will be in the irons and they are scheduled to break from post position twelve.
