The creation of the Breeders' Cup two-year-old turf races several years ago put a couple of late summer stakes at Woodbine front and center - the Natalma Stakes and the Summer Stakes. Using the Betmix Angler online handicapping software we find that Last Late Pace has been a very profitable approach to playing this racetype at the Toronto track. This Angle has pointed to the last three Summer winners (average win payout of $16.86) and to Victory to Victory, heroine of last year's Natalma at a $17.70 win mutuel.
