Free to Sing appears set for first win

EmailETOBICOKE, Ontario - Free to Sing could break through in Wednesday's first race at Woodbine, a maiden special weight route, which is the only non-claiming contest on the eight-race card.

Free to Sing finished third in each of his three outings, all in maiden special sprints. Most recently, when favored traveling seven furlongs, he mounted a wide rally and was beaten 3 3/4 lengths.

Free to Sing, a son of Unbridled's Song, is a three-quarter brother to the successful sire Broken Vow, who is a multiple graded stakes winner going long.

The other possibilities in the opener are all longtime maidens - Grey Boundary, Puddle Stomp, and A P Valor.

Grey Boundary was a strong second under Emma Wilson in his last two-turn attempt Oct. 25. He never got untracked while racing wide over seven furlongs in his last start.

Puddle Stomp finished third behind Grey Boundary Oct. 25, and has worked a half-mile twice since then. Trainer Catherine Day Phillips and jockey Chantal Sutherland are a combined 5 for 32 at the meeting.

A P Valor has 1 second and 5 thirds in 14 starts. He earned almost all of his $54,300 bankroll on the grass, and his two most recent efforts on the Polytrack were subpar.

Wednesday's second race, an $8,000 claimer for fillies and mares, kicks off the pick seven, which has a carryover of $26,526.

Speedstorm will likely be favored off her daylight triumph under identical conditions Nov. 7. She has won 4 of 10 starts this year, including three scores on the Polytrack.

Class-droppers Curve of the Moon and Loula are also contenders in race 2.

Corpus Magnus is descending two notches off a typically good effort in the third, a six-furlong dash for $20,000 3-year-olds.

The Bob Tiller-trained entry of Vegas Venture and Are You Serious must be used in the fourth, a $40,000 claimer for older sprinters.

One Quiet Cat and Archie's Gal are both plunging from second-level optional $62,500 claiming company to $32,000 in the fifth. One Quiet Cat polished off $40,000 opposition in her next-to-last start.

The sixth race appears wide open, but the turf-to-Poly dropper Academist should be tough in the seventh. Smart Exploits merits top billing in the finale.
