The Woodbine Mile (event details) is set to take place this Saturday evening at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. This is a huge race this year with a lot on the line. Of course there is the $800,000 purse, but you also have to factor in the fact that the Woodbine Mile is part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series and the tagline for the race is “Win and You’re In”. So needless to say there is a lot of pressure on these horses to perform in order to claim the $480K first prize and a berth in the Breeders’ Cup Mile in November.
The bookies have Deauville as the 5-2 favourite heading into Saturday, but there’s a lot of quality horses in this large 12 horse field so it will be exciting to see what happens come Saturday.
The Woodbine Mile will be broadcast this year on TSN2 with and hour of coverage for the race between 6 and 7pm. The post time is at 6:34pm, so be sure to tune in no later than 6:30pm this Saturday to catch the race.

2017 Woodbine Mile Morning Line Odds
Here are the morning line odds for the Woodbine Mile (from the Woodine website). I should mention that the odds for horse racing are not fixed, which means they will change throughout race day as bets come in the various horses in the race. Check out our parimutuel betting page for more information about how the betting works in horse racing.
- Deauville 5/2
- World Approval 7/2
- Lancaster Bomber 9/2
- Dutch Connection 6/1
- Mondialiste 8/1
- Tower of Texas 12/1
- Conquest Panthera 12/1
- Long On Value 15/1
- Dragon Bay 20/1
- Arod 20/1
- Glenville Gardens 20/1
- Best Bard 50/1
As you can see Deauville is the clear favourite heading into the race, but World Approval, Lancaster Bomber, Dutch Connection and Mondialiste are all being given a legitimate shot at winning the race, while Conquest Panthera and Tower of Texas also have reasonably short odds.
Deauville is the deserving favourite with the horse being very consistent this year finishing in the top 3 in each of hist last 6 races. That said, Deauville only has one win in that 6 race span and I’m concerned he will add another top 3 finish without a race in Toronto this weekend. My favourite play is World Approval at 4/1 odds. He won a G1 mile race in the Fourstardave Handicap last month and has won two of his last three races. This short race should be perfect for World Approval.
