Leroidesanimaux Wins Canada Gr1 Atto Mile
Meanwhile, on the track in Canada, thoroughbredtimes.com reports that brilliant galloper "Leroidesanimaux (Brz) stretched his winning streak to 8 races with a powerful 7 3/4-length victory" in the Gr1 Atto Mile Stakes at Woodbine on Sunday. Ridden by John Velazquez for trainer Bobby Frankel, this the 3rd Gr1 victory for Leroidesanimaux, whose ultimate target is the US$1.5 million Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile on October 29. "Because Leroidesanimaux is not nominated to the Breeders' Cup, he must be supplemented by owner T N T Stud to run in the Mile." The win boosted the earnings of Leroidesanimaux (a 1/2 brother to Gr1 winner Uapybo) to US$1,253,377. His record now reads 12 starts for 9 wins.
