Email

EARLY LIGHT
Trainer: Josie Carroll
Last race: Oct. 28, 5th
Finish: 1st by 2 1/2
Beyer: 71
After breaking from the rail, she was a thoroughly professional debut winner in a six-furlong maiden special for 2-year-old fillies. The full sister to Grade 3 Ontario Fashion winner Moonlit Promise could be a good one.

SHAMROCK ROSE
Trainer: Mark Casse
Last race: Oct. 29, 2nd
Finish: 6th by 7 3/4
Beyer: 53
She was shuffled back behind a wall of horses on the turn when meeting males in a one-mile allowance over yielding turf. She was previously in fine Tapeta form, including a second to Wonder Gadot in the Grade 3 Mazarine.

WESTMORELAND
Trainer: Malcolm Pierce
Last race: Oct. 27, 8th
Finish: 6th by 7 1/2
Beyer: 58
He had worked nicely after filling out the exacta in his much-improved second start, but was ineffective this day after a very wide journey. Expect him to rebound when he’s reunited with leading rider Eurico Da Silva.
