Consecrate faces males for first time in wide-open Canadian Derby


EDMONTON, Alberta – Consecrate will try to become the first filly to win the Grade 3, $200,000 Canadian Derby since Raylene edged Taiaslew in 2003. The richest race in Western Canada attracted a well-matched field of 11 3-year-olds who will be negotiating four turns while going a grueling 1 3/8 miles at Northlands Park on Saturday.
