The filly Moira won the Queen’s Plate over the weekend at Toronto’s Woodbine Racetrack, setting a new record in the process. Kevin Attard, the trainer of The Crowd’s favourite horse and jockey, achieved his life-long goal of winning the Queen’s Plate after six attempts, with the first win coming from The Crowd’s favourite horse and jockey.
Sunday was the 163rd edition of the Queen’s Plate, which is the longest-run thoroughbred stakes event in the country. The first jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown was held at 1 14 mile at the Woodbine Tapeta for Canadian-bred 3-year-olds on Sunday, August 21, 2022.
The winner is the big one
After her win in the CA$500,000 Woodbine Oaks last month, Moira was definitely one of the candidates for the crown on Sunday. After sitting at eight at the half-time point, the filly and Mr. Hernandez moved into third at the quarter-mile point behind Ironstone and the Minkster. After that, the filly simply took off and completed a record-breaking victory for the race.
The win is something that Mr. Attard has wanted to do for a long time and he shared that there were many emotions before the race. The trainer said that the horse had pre-race nerves due to the many people around her, and that she became nervous before the start of the race.
After crossing the final line, Mr. Hernandez said that the hose still had more in it. The double of Oaks-Plate has only been achieved by eight horses.
Sir for Sure got to third, with a second advantage over Hall of Dreams. Ironstone, Dancin in Da’nile, Rondure, Hunt Master, Duke of Love, and Causin’ Mayhem are the following. Hall of Dreams returned CA$10.60 and CA$7.10, while Sir for Sure paid CA$7.10 as well.
Safe Conduct was the winner of the Queen’s Plate last year, and the track reported an impressive betting handle. Over CA$ 3.5 has been accumulated by The Queen’s Plate, out of the CA $16.1 in total wagering volume for the card. The Wagering handle for the card in 2020 was the same as it was in 2011.
There are more exciting races out there
The second Canadian Triple Crown event will be the Prince of Wales Stakes, according to the full calendar of Woodbine Entertainment. There will be a race on September 13, 2022, at the Fort Erie Racetrack. The Breeders’ Stakes race, which takes place on October 2, 2022 at Woodbine Racetrack, is the third and final race.
Dan Moira won the 163rd running of the $1-million Queen’s Plate.
Out of six attempts, Moira is the first filly to win the Queen’s Plate, Canada’s richest race for three-year-old fillies. Even after crossing the final line, the hose still had more in it, as evidenced by the second Queen’s Plate victory for Rafael Hernandez. The double of Oaks-Plate has only been achieved by eight horses.
