The Friday Show: Delayed Opening At Woodbine

Saturday was supposed to be opening day of the Thoroughbred meet at Woodbine racetrack near Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Instead, just as the 2020 season was halted prematurely by government order in the midst of a spike in the coronavirus pandemic, so too is the 2021 opening.

Jennifer Morrison, a longtime Ontario-based handicapper and turf writer (you can read her at, joins publisher Ray Paulick and bloodstock editor Joe Nevills in this week’s Friday Show to discuss how horsepeople are reacting to the latest setback – a lockdown, or stay-at-home order that has temporarily derailed live racing.

The Canadian lockdown comes at a time when more U.S. tracks are able to open to limited attendance and many Americans see light at the end of the dark COVID-19 tunnel, thanks in large part to the country’s vaccination program.

We’ve also got our star of the week and a Toast to Vino Rosso that looks at another first-crop foal by the Breeders’ Cup Classic-winning son of Curlin standing at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Ky.
