The lone Saturday Grade 1 in North America is the Woodbine Mile north of the U. S. border in Toronto.
This year's edition has drawn a field of talented and hard-knocking turf milers so we scanned the Betmix Angler online handicapping database for some perspective.
Looking at the past 44 one-mile graded turf stakes at Woodbine, Jockey 1-Year Win % has yielded positive returns for handicappers.
This factor has pointed to 3 of the past 6 Woodbine Mile heroes, including last year's champ El Tormenta. His 44-1 shocker is a big reason the overall Win Return for this handicapping factor shows at a whopping $99.10.
However, this factor has also pointed to, among others, 2015 winner Mondialiste ($9.60) and Dixie Moon, the 13-1 runner-up in 2017.
