Woodbine already kicked off Queen's Plate week with its Canada Day card on Wednesday, but now it's officially Queen's Plate weekend with Friday's 9-race card at the Toronto-area oval.

It's hard not to look ahead to Sunday's blockbuster day of racing at Woodbine, but there are plenty of wagering opportunities between now and then, and I'll do my best not only to find them but also to capitalize on them!

The Players' Pool will be in action each day this weekend. Michael "The Champ" Beychok and I will "save" the bulk of our bankroll for the Queen's Plate card including the classic race itself and its 16-horse field, but we'll dabble a bit the next two days and try to catch lightening in one of the multi-race wagers and/or in the Jackpot Super High 5.

The ABC picks below reflect my opinions only, but you can get a good sense of who Beychok likes by viewing our tickets on the Players' Pool page.

And don't forget: Just like the advertising in the top left of this blog post says, ALL handicapping reports for Queen's Plate day (July 5) at Woodbine are absolutely FREE! Ultimate PPs, Daily Selections, Winner's Choice... if it's a Brisnet product for 05 at Woodbine then it's free to download (I say "Brisnet product" because Equibase, Trackmaster, and DRF PPs are not free even though they're available on

Enjoy a great weekend at Woodbine!
