Redwood, a British-bred horse, will be looking for a second successive win at Woodbine Racetrack (TSN, 5:40 p.m. ET) at the $2-million Pattison International thoroughbred race on Saturday.
The four-year-old son of Breeders' Cup turf champion High Chaparral made a triumphant North American debut last month, winning the Grade 1 $750,000 Northern Dancer turf race at Woodbine. And Redwood did it in dramatic fashion, moving from seventh on the rail to capture a half-length win over Fifty Proof in the 1 1/2-mile contest.
Also on Saturday's card will be the $1-million, Grade 1 E.P. Taylor 1 1/4-mile turf race for fillies and mares as well as the six-furlong, $500,000 Nearctic, for three-year-olds and up.
The winners of the three events will secure berths in their respective Breeders' Cup contests on Nov. 5 and 6 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
Here are the odds for the International:
Redwood, 2 to 1
Chinchon, 7 to 2
Marsh Side, 4 to 1
Al Khali, 6 to 1
Joshua Tree, 8 to 1
Fifty Proof, 10 to 1
Mores Wells, 12 to 1
Simmard, 15 to 1
Memorial Maniac, 20 to 1.
