This week we'll be enclosing the link to the Go Fund Me Page for Corey Lanerie's family, after the sudden passing of his wife, Shantel, the other day. They had an 11 year old daughter, and while many of you were extremely generous in donating to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in her honor, if you have a winner or two this week, I recommend this heartily. He is truly one of the nicest guys in the sport.

Graded Stakes - Woodbine - Queens Plate
1. Silent Poet
From an adjusted speed figure standpoint, #5 SILENT POET has improved with each & every start while having won in her lone try over the poly. There's a bullet move since the last ( a positive sign for one that rates a touch ), and sire was 1 for 2 over the carpet fibers ( a Grade 2 score ). The Tomlinson figure from the last sprint is just about the same as today's stretchout, and we love that Lasix is still out of the picture. You don't need to have TELEKINESIS to know that the #10 is a deserving favorite in this spot, what with the solid overall body of work ( going 1X or 2X, poly or dirt ). A must use in all your action. #7 DIXIE MOON has a 4:3-1-0 mark right here, and what the hell's wrong with that?
