There's a lot on the line in terms of money and prestige in weekend racing in France, Ireland and Canada.  TEN GRADE 1 races in Great Britain and Ireland, 2 at Woodbine in North America.

There are big races at Leopardstown and the Curragh in Ireland. TREVE, the defending Arc champion, will try to maintain her status as favorite for next month's renewal with a Group 1 trial heat in France. Dual Derby winner AUSTRALIA faces some old rivals in Ireland. Queen's Plate winner LEXIE LOU is back on the grass at Woodbine.

There are two St Legers -- one at Doncaster in England, the oldest Classic on the planet -- and the other at the Curragh in Ireland.  The winner of the American St. Leger, run last month at Arlington Park, The Pizza Man, is back in action this weekend.

In North America, turf action centers on Woodbine, near Toronto, with two graded races on the green on Saturday and three more on Sunday. The fun culminates in the $1 million, Grade I Ricoh Woodbine Mile, a qualifier for a Breeders' Cup Mile that already looks to be a race for the ages. Read more at source
