ETOBICOKE, Ontario &ndash; Election Day is Monday in Toronto, and polls have shown a virtual dead heat in the hotly contested mayor&rsquo;s race between the Woodbine-friendly Rob Ford and George Smitherman. Saturday&rsquo;s $125,000 Bunty Lawless Stakes is also shaping up as a tight race, between Rahy&rsquo;s Attorney and Sand Cove, and Rahy&rsquo;s Attorney may have a slight edge in the one-mile turf route for Ontario-sired runners.\r\nRahy&rsquo;s Attorney enjoyed a career year in 2008, during which he won the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile and the Sovereign Award for champion male grass horse. He defeated Sand Cove over soft ground while taking last year&rsquo;s Bunty Lawless convincingly.\r\nRahy&rsquo;s Attorney&rsquo;s lone win in seven starts this year came in the restricted With Approval Stakes on Aug. 14. He&rsquo;s coming off a second in the $250,000 PTHA President&rsquo;s Cup at Parx Racing. He attended a pedestrian pace before taking control, only to give way late to Violon Sacre, who came back last weekend to win the Grade 3 Knickerbocker at Belmont Park.\r\nTrainer Ian Black said he was content with Rahy&rsquo;s Attorney&rsquo;s last effort, which came under jockey Stewart Elliot.\r\n&ldquo;I told Stewart Elliot that it looked like we were the only speed in the race,&rdquo; said Black. &ldquo;I said that he can go a half in 48, and still finish for you. When they went that slow, everybody had horse [left], and one ran us down.&rdquo;\r\nRahy&rsquo;s Attorney is being reunited with Slade Callaghan, who rode him in the &rsquo;08 Woodbine Mile.\r\nSand Cove has won three stakes in seven outings this year under the guidance of trainer Roger Attfield. Overall, the 5-year-old has registered 10 wins in 30 starts, which is similar to Rahy&rsquo;s Attorney&rsquo;s 11-for-33 record.\r\nLast time out, Sand Cove won the seven-furlong Overskate Stakes, which followed a subpar showing as the heavy favorite in another restricted stakes, the 1 1/16-mile Elgin.\r\n&ldquo;He doesn&rsquo;t very often throw a bad one,&rdquo; Attfield said. &ldquo;He came out of [the Elgin] with a little virus, so we gave him a little time off at the farm. We brought him back in, and he ran a big one.&rdquo;\r\nAttfield said he&rsquo;s looking forward to putting Sand Cove back on the grass, over which he&rsquo;s a two-time winner. &ldquo;Absolutely, especially if it&rsquo;s firm,&rdquo; he said.\r\nOnly three others were entered, including Guipago, who upset Society&rsquo;s Chairman while capturing the Sept. 6 Halton Stakes from off the pace.
