Awesome Slate will need to stay focused in Canadian Juvenile


Trainer Tim Rycroft is hoping to close out the Northlands Park meet by winning the $50,000 Freedom of the City on Friday evening and the $50,000 Canadian Juvenile on closing day Saturday. The undefeated 2-year-old filly Bootleggers Wife is the 1-2 morning-line favorite for the Freedom of the City. With good behavior, Awesome Slate could have been undefeated going into the Canadian Juvenile. Nonetheless, he is going to be heavily favored to win the one-mile race for 2-year-olds that drew 11 horses. Only 10 will be allowed to start, and Moonlight Malice will need a scratch in order to run.
