July 5-7


A quick reference tool meant to help the newer fan (like me!)


A look ahead at weekend racing plus Fourth of July results

Published: July 4, 2013 at 10:18 PM

Canada's signature race of the year, some defending Breeders' Cup champions and speed, speed, speed all are on tap in weekend racing.

It's the Queen's Plate at Woodbine near Toronto, where the northern nation's top 3-year-olds slug it out for Canada's biggest Thoroughbred prize.

Out west, Game On Dude also has a lot of weight on for Saturday's Hollywood Gold Cup. If he can tote the poundage, Game On Dude will solidify his standing among the favorites for the Breeders' Cup Classic this fall. At Belmont Park, Saturday's Suburban for older horses and the Dwyer for 3-year-olds also will be noted by those watching the Classic contenders.

Longer-distance turf runners have a big weekend on tap, too, with the $500,000 United Nations Stakes at Monmouth offering a ticket to the Breeders' Cup Turf and a pair of Sunday races at Woodbine pointing to that track's multimillion-dollar turf features later in the summer.
Overseas action includes the Group 1 Coral Eclipse at Sandown in England and the Group 1 Deutches Derby in Hamburg.

Take a deep breath and dive right on in.  Read more at source
