Woodbine: Pool Play breezes for Singspiel

Barbara D. Livingston
Pool Play will go 1 1 / 2 mile on grass in the Singspiel.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Trainer Mark Casse sent out Pool Play to breeze five furlongs in 1:02 here at Woodbine on Monday morning in preparation for Sunday’s Singspiel Stakes.

The Grade 3 Singspiel, a 1 1/2-mile turf race with a purse of $150,000, is one of four stakes races on the Queen’s Plate undercard.

Patrioticandpround, one of two Casse entrants here in Monday’s Dominion Day Stakes, was scratched and also is slated to contest the Singspiel.

I love 1 1/2 mile turf races. Isn't it kind of weird that there are zero graded stakes races restricted to three year olds in the United States at the distance of 1 1/2 miles? Shouldn't there be at least one? It's time for a track to get on that.

Amen Brandon. The TURF is where it's at except West Coast green concrete. Gotta love Belmont, Woodbine, Monmouth, Saratoga where they have real grass.

Pool Play ? The question is whether Mr. Attfield enters Forte Dei Marmi :-). Sunday 58 and 2/5ths on Woodbine's Turf Trng Track (if I remember correctly). Forte Dei Marmi the potential monster on long turf races the balance of year. Consider adding to your watch list. Good weekend to all.

Stick a Forte in Dei Marmi. Hes done.

If he was 'done' he wouldn't be working a black type 5F like that. We'll just wait and see. IF he goes in big field and IFa big price I'll take the risk you are incorrect. Good luck to you my friend.

zkid...........stick a fork eh ? Just watch Attfield move this one up as we get to the Fall races and then we'll get the price. Quite impressive perfprmance even if G3. He is master of bring the like of Perfect Shirl along and tose warriors like Forte Dei Marmi. Something left in the tank I believe........Micahdog
