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 Delta Prince as the 5-2 favourite heading into Saturday, but there are plenty of quality horses in this field, including Oscar Performance at 7/2 after a poor performance as a favourite in the Arlington Million last month.
The Woodbine Mile will be broadcast this year on TSN2 with and hour of coverage for the race between 4 and 5pm EST. The post time is at 4:48pm, so be sure to tune in to TSN2 in the later afternoon to catch the race.

2018 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.
- Delta Prince 5/2
- Oscar Performance 7/2
- Lord Glitters 4/1
- Mr. Havercamp 6/1
- Divisidero 8/1
- Stormy Antarctic 8/1
- Good Samaritan 10/1
- La Sardane 15/1
- Vanish 20/1
As you can see Delta Prince is the favourite heading into the race, but Oscar Performance and Lord Glitters are both there with a good shot of winning the race, while Mr. Havercamp, Divisidero and Stormy Antarctic could also win without shocking anyone.
Delta Prince is the rightful favourite after a win in the King Edward-G2 and a second place finish in the Fourstardave Handicap-G1 this summer. Oscar Performance would have likely been the favourite heading into the race had it not been for a poor 9th place finish at the Arlington Million, where Oscar Performance went in as a favourite.
Lord Glitters has also had a great year, but seems to always come runner up in the 1 mile races.
My favourite play is Oscar Performance at 7/2 odds. He has won both 1 mile races he’s competed in during his career and it’s not uncommon for Oscar Performance to bounce back after a poor performance with a win. He finished 9th in the Breeders’ Cup Turf-G1 last year and bounced back with a win in the Poker Stakes-G3 1 mile race to start this year. He also finished 10th in the American Turf-G2 last year and bounced back with 3 straight wins. I’m not as down on the horse as many seem to be.
