Strong Field of Fillies Ready to Run in The Woodbine Oaks

The Woodbine Oaks for fillies often produces a contender for the Queen's Plate, the first leg of the Canadian Triple Crown.

The top Canadian-bred fillies in the country will take center stage in Sunday’s $500,000 Woodbine Oaks, to be run at a mile and an eighth over Woodbine’s All Weather track. While this race is prestigious in its own right, it may also serve as a prep race for a talented filly to take on male rivals in the prestigious Queen’s Plate in July.

Paladin Bay already a multiple-stakes winner

Paladin Bay is tabbed as the 2-1 morning line favorite for trainer Harold Ladouceur. The three-year-old daughter of Sligo Bay defeated a quality field, including the highly regarded My Conquistadory, in the Selene Stakes (G3) on May 17. The most experienced filly in the race with eleven total starts, she has four wins to her credit, all under jockey Gerry Olguin.

Race features a rematch of several old rivals

Also in the field is Lexie Lou, 3-1 morning line making her first start for the red-hot Mark Casse stable. Owned by Gary Barber and scheduled to be ridden by Patrick Husbands, the three-year-old daughter of Sligo Bay will get blinkers off for this race and did break her maiden without them as a juvenile. She is winless from two starts this year and was third as the favorite behind Wild Catomine (6-1) and Hot and Spicy (8-1), both of whom she faces here again.
