Breeders' Stakes Expert Picks
Mighty Heart will be a heavy favourite in the race, but he is unproven on the turf. His stablemate Belichick has drawn alongside and is bred for the grass, being by top Kentucky stallion Lemon Drop Kid. He was third in his debut on the grass, running behind top prospect Shirl's Speight, and gets back to that surface today. Belichick is still a maiden but will seek to end that in the Breeders' Stakes.

Handicapping the Breeders' Stakes
Mighty Heart is the horse everyone will be watching in the Breeders' Stakes. The son of little-known Dramedy broke his maiden in his third start, scoring by more than four lengths after he finally arrived at Woodbine. He had originally begun his career in Louisiana, where he didn't handle the turf well in just his second start.
From his maiden win, he finished third against some top horses in an allowance race, then surprised in the Queen's Plate at 13-1. He came right back to add the Prince of Wales on September 29 and is now a media darling in Canada.
But can stablemate Belichick beat him? Still a maiden, Belichick was second in the Queen's Plate at 26-1 odds. He is well-bred for the grass and has been improving every time the distances got longer.
Clayton was the favourite for the Plate Trial, which he won narrowly for trainer Kevin Attard. The son of Bodemeister was then third in the Queen's Plate and second in the Prince of Wales, but had some excuses for the loss. He has top rider Rafael Hernandez aboard but is also untested on the turf.
Enchant Me is a huge longshot at 50-1. Also a maiden, he has been running well on grass before unlike many of these horses. He is a son of turf star Magician and out of a Giant's Causeway mare. He would have to significantly improve to win but has the ability to surprise in the exotics.
Breeders' Stakes Predictions
Mighty Heart may find the turf and the distance too tough, which makes the race open to longer shots such as his stablemate Belichick. Turf form and distance are important factors, which make horses like Meyer and English Conquerer both able to win at big prices. Deviant was a turf stakes winner last year as a two-year-old in Louisiana and Told It All has been a winner twice in three tries on this course.
Woodbine Best Bets
The best bets at Woodbine are the same as most tracks: win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, and superfecta. There are also multi-race wagers, such as the Pick 4 and Pick 5. The more races you include in an exotic bet, the harder it becomes, but the bigger the payout.
To place a bet at Woodbine Racetrack, first, decide how much money you want to bet. Then select your horse or horses, and what kind of bet you are going to do. Place your bet by using the horse's number, rather than their name. Once the race is official, you can then see how much money you win back.
Woodbine Racetrack has a unique configuration in that there is an undulating outer turf course over 1 1/2 miles, an inner synthetic main track that can handle any type of weather, and then a smaller seven-furlong turf course that was installed in 2019. The Breeders' Stakes is run around the outer turf track.
