Woodbine quietly cards some of the more competitive stakes races in North America each weekend and Sunday’s 11-horse Bold Ruckus Stakes is a good example. Betmix Angler found a solid sample of 17 6-furlong turf stakes at the Toronto area track and the data shows that over one quarter of these contests are won by the horse with the best Average Late Pace in their last three races.
This angle is also trending in the right direction. Two of the 2016 Woodbine 6-furlong turf stakes produced double-digit winners using this approach, including last year’s Bold Ruckus hero Songs and Laughter ($11.40).
