all in Breeders' Cup

With the Road to the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve beginning with the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes Sept. 14 at Churchill Downs, a points leader was established with victorious Dennis’ Moment, and perhaps, too, a legitimate early Derby favorite.

Brilliant horses bred and owned by Sam-Son Farm have galloped their way to victory around Woodbine’s sweeping turns since the iconic operation was founded in 1972.

Saturday’s Ricoh Woodbine Mile has attracted a competitive field of turf specialists who will vie for a $1 million purse and a spot in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Mile. ABR’s Penelope Miller was in Toronto on Friday morning to capture the scene as the Woodbine Mile contenders trained through a glorious sunrise for Saturday’s big race.
