Race 6 is the Shady Well Stakes, an event for two-year-old fillies travelling 5 ½-furlongs on the Tapeta, Woodbine’s main track.
The debut winner Aubrieta will get a lot of support in this second start for a top a jockey/trainer combo and is a logical contender. I respect her but will try to beat her with the #7 Silver Magnatized, who sports the Prince of Wales winning connections of trainer Kevin Attard and jockey Gary Boulanger.
Attard makes a key equipment change (taking the blinkers off) which should give his filly a more relaxed approach. Couple this with a nice outside spot in the gate and I can see Silver Magnatized landing in the catbird seat. She’s my top choice for a slight upset over a few others in here who I will put underneath in some exactas and trifectas.
My fictional plays on the Dark Horse Bets app with my $50 bankroll are listed below.
