Queen’s Plate probable starters released

With just over a week until the 163rd running of The Queen’s Plate, Woodbine Entertainment today released the list of probable starters for the first leg of the OLG Canadian Triple Crown.

A total of 11 three-year-olds are on the list of probable starters, including Woodbine Oaks winner Moira. The Kevin Attard trainee will likely attempt to become the 38th filly to win The Queen's Plate. Only nine fillies have won the race since 1956, with Wonder Gadot  the most recent filly winner in 2018.

Marine Stakes (Gr. 3) winner Rondure  is also among the 11 likely starters. The Katerina Vassilieva trainee has turned in strong efforts in both of his starts this season and was the top ranked Plate contender prior to being bumped down to second after Moira's dominant Oaks win.
