Queen's Plate 2013 Results: Midnight Aria makes every furlong a winning one

This is the only picture I could find of the Woodbine grandstand. Yeah, it's a turf race. What ya gonna do? - Gray Mortimore/Allsport

Canada's biggest race goes to Midnight Aria.


Midnight Aria
broke cleanly from the gate and rolled through soft fractions over the Woodbine Polytrack on his way to winning the 2013 Queen's Plate. Up With the Birds, the morning line and post time favorite, ran near the rear of the field for much of the race, made a huge move coming three wide off the far turn, kept coming at Midnight Aria with every stride in deep stretch but ultimately ran out of real estate. Dynamic Sky finished a well-beaten third while filly Spring in the Air rounded out the superfecta.

Jockey Jesse Campbell and Midnight Aria couldn't have asked for a better trip around the Woodbine main track. After clicking off moderate splits of 24.63 and 48.58 through the first half mile, the rest of the field allowed the winner to go the next six furlongs in a pedestrian 1:16.14.

Midnight Aria is a three-year-old colt by Midnight Lute out of a Mt. Magazine mare (Shebandowana), trained by Nicholas Gonzalez and ridden by Jesse Campbell.
