2016 Summer Stakes Race Preview at Woodbine Racetrack
Conquest Farenheit 2-1 - has just one career start for trainer Mark Casse and it was a successful one - a maiden score by five lengths on this track August 26 - a race that he earned an impressive 94 Beyer Speed Figure. He tries to make it 2-for-2 when he leaves from gate 6 Sunday with Patrick Husbands in the irons of the morning line favorite.
Good Samaritan 5-2 - legendary trainer Bill Mott sends out Good Samaritan for his second career start. His first resulted in a maiden score at Saratoga August 13. He looked good in that race and hopes to make a little noise in his stakes debut - from the outside post 7 as the second betting choice.
Harlan's Harmony 3-1 - has two career starts for trainer John Terranova with two wins. Last time out was a good win in his stakes debut - the minor Skidmore Stakes at Saratoga August 19. He posted an impressive maiden score at first asking at Belmont Park July 14. Harlan's Harmony hasn't been touched so far and will try to keep the streak going from post 3 Sunday. Jose Ortiz rides the morning line third choice.
Tiz a Slam 9-2 - Roger Attfield colt will hit the track for the third time having posted two wins in his two starts so far. Last time out the win came in an Allowance here August 28 after a maiden score at first asking - on this track August 1. Tiz a Slam looks to remain undefeated in his career as he steps into stakes company for the first time - from post 5 with Eurico Rosa Da Silva guiding him.
Channel Maker 8-1 - has a win and a third place finish in his two career starts for trainer Daniel Vella. He makes his grade stakes debut Sunday off a nice win in his stakes bow - the minor Vandal Stakes on this track August 14. His debut resulted in a third - on this very track July 24.
