A field of seven will take to the track in the Marine Stakes - race 8 on Woodbine's Sunday card. Post time is 4:52 PM. Let's take a look into the past performances of all seven entries for this G3 stakes - four of which are nominated for the Queen's Plate.
Well regarded and improving colt has just two career starts for trainer Malcolm Pierce with a win and a second-place finish. He makes his stakes debut Sunday after finally breaking maiden comfortably by 2 3/4 lengths with a respectable 78 Beyer Speed Figure last time out on this track April 28. He was second in his debut in the minor Vandal Stakes here August 14. Malibu Secret has been good against lesser competition and hopes to carry the momentum into his stakes bow. Eurico Rosa Da Silva has the mount on the morning line favorite.
Legendary trainer Bill Mott sends out Channel Maker for his eighth career start after his seven starts produced a win, a second and two third place finishes. He placed in his first three career starts on this track including a win over Malibu Secret in the minor Vandal Stales August 14 and a third in the G2 Summer Stakes in September. He went on to a seventh in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf and an eighth in the G3 Palm Beach Stakes at Gulfstream March 4. He has been just OK in two starts since - a second last time out in an Allowance April 26 followed a fourth in a similar race April 8 - both at Keeneland. Channel Maker is the most experienced entry in the field and hopes for a first graded stakes score from gate 6. Rafael Manuel Hernandez rides the second betting choice.
