Trio of Grade 1 Turf Stakes at Woodbine on Saturday: Entries, Post Positions and Odds

Woodbine Racecourse in Canada features three huge turf races on their Saturday card, all three of which could have major Breeders' Cup implications.  The Grade 1 E.P. Taylor features a host of talented horses that ran their last race in Europe, including Shalanaya (IRE), Laheleed (IRE), Silver Grey (IRE), Reggane (GB), Contredanse (IRE), Gallic Star (IRE), and Akarlina (FR)

I can't remember the last time I've seen that many European shippers entered in the same race.  My guess?  The word is out across the Atlantic that this year's North American turf horses are a bit on the thin side.

The Canadian International field will include Chinchon (IRE) - the winner of the United Nations at Monmouth in July who then shipped back to France to finish a well beatrn 6th in the Group 2 Prix Foy - along with other talented Euros such as Mores Wells (GB), Aiden O'Brien's Joshua Tree (IRE), and Redwood (GB) - winner of the Northern Dancer at Woodbine a month ago. 

Below are the entries, post positions and morning line odds for the Grade 1 Nearctic Stakes, the E.P. Taylor, and the Canadian International.

I'll have a preview of all three of these races on Friday.
