Hot Date: Thoroughbred Affair

AUGUST 15 Put on your Sunday best, find your seat in the Woodbine Racetrack grandstand and get ready to cheer your favourite three-year-old to victory in the Breeders’ Stakes horserace. This final piece in the sought-after Canadian “Triple Crown”—following the Queen’s Plate and Prince of Wales Stakes last month—is a 1.5-mile derby run over a turf track for a $500,000 purse. Among the top thoroughbreds expected to enter the starting gate are Big Red Mike—the 2010 Queen’s Plate winner will be chomping at the bit to fill the horseshoes of last year’s Stakes victor, Perfect Shower. Woodbine Racetrack, 1 p.m.; call 416-675-7223 for more information.
