War Bomber Takes Toronto Cup At Woodbine

Over a mile on the E.P. Taylor turf course, War Bomber stalked the early pace, split horses, and took over the lead in deep stretch to take the Toronto Cup at Woodbine Race Track in Toronto, Ontario. Recently claimed from Mark Casse’s barn by trainer Norman McKnight, the Irish bred gelding followed up his victory in an August claiming race over the same track with another winning performance.

Breaking from post three, jockey Shawn Bridgmohan settled the 4-year-old son of War Front on the rail behind the front three early, as Azzurro lead the field of nine down the backstretch with Barnegat Light and Gretzky the Great following. Into the far turn, Bridgmohan moved off the rail, but soon ran into traffic, forced to wait for the stretch to make his move.

Into the Woodbine straight, War Bomber found running room, split horses, and accelerated, passing Gretzky the Great and a surging Artie’s Storm to win by two lengths. Artie’s Storm was second and Riptide Rock beat Gretzky the Great for fourth.

The final time for the one-mile Toronto Cup was 1:34.14. Find this race’s chart here.

War Bomber paid $41.30, $15.70, and $7.20. Artie’s Storm paid $4.20 and $3.00. Riptide Rock paid $3.20.

Bred by Coolmore, War Bomber is out of the Indian Ridge mare Sun Shower. He is owned by Bruno Schickedanz. War Bomber improves to three wins in five lifetime starts.
