Woodbine: "Hit Man" wires Woodstock field

EmailEssence Hit Man ($16.10) set the pace and kept on going to take the $150K Woodstock Stakes by three-quarters over the closing longshot D's Wando. Favored Wildcat Frankie didn't respond well to rating tactics, and trailed the seven-horse field of 3yos. The winner covered six furlongs in 1:08.66 under Chantal Sutherland.
