POST POSITIONS DRAWN FOR 2012 PATTINSON CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL
I couldn’t be more excited – the one Race I live to see every year! Post Positions were drawn earlier today for Sunday’s $1.5 million Pattison Canadian International and thanks to our Friend TripleDeadHeat and his Photo above, here are our official Contenders.
Ten Gentlemen and one Lady will go head-to-head for fame and glory over Woodbine‘s gorgeous E.P. Taylor Turf Course, which is so close to the Grandstand you can almost reach-out and feel the action. Here are the Contenders:
1. Lay Time
3. Forte di Marni
5. Prince Will I Am
6. Wigmore Hall
7. Reliable Man
8. Joshua Tree
9. Al Khali
10. Imperial Monarch
11. Air Support
I know it’s disloyal of me to go against any other than Prince Will I Am as a proud Canadian and well, for namesake, my $2 is going on the lightly-raced Imperial Monarch. The three-year-old Irish-bred Colt might lack the experience of his Competitors, but he’s certainly got the Bloodlines, the Connections and the Preparation to make it happen. He’s coming off a Group I win in France back in July and rest assured (pardon the pun), he’s fresh.
Today’s Drawmaster was two-time Paralympic Gold Medalist and Champion Swimmer, Summer Mortimer. Click here to see which Contenders she likes!

The Races start Sunday at 1:00 PM and run till 6:00 PM, with a stunning Undercard of Races including the World’s finest Turf Fillies and Mares fighting it out to the finish in the Grade I E.P. Taylor Stakes. Woodbine Racetrack is only minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport and less than 30 minutes from Islington Station (Bus 37A). Get in!
Although they went quick, I still have one more $25 Gift Card to hand-out to one Reader who’s coming out on Sunday. To qualify, simply Tweet me @MRWILLW which Contender you think will the Pattison Canadian International before Friday, November 12, 2012! Readers must be 19 years of age to enter, but everyone is welcome at Woodbine!
