On Sunday, probably the best horses competing on the Canadian all-weather tracks met up in the G2 Autumn Stakes 2022, where some of the anticipated contestants utterly failed to perform, unlike Who’s The Star who was simply superb. Thanks to his seemingly late turn of foot, he managed to triumph by half a length before War Bomber. Here our Autumn Stakes 2022 full recap
Autumn Stakes 2022
The afternoon’s main event at the Woodbine Racecourse saw a brilliant performance of four-year-old Who’s The Star (13-4). In the end, this chestnut started off as the favorite of the G2 race, held on the all-weather tracks and offering the purse of $175,000.
It was open to three-year-old and older horses who clashed over a mile and half a furlong distance, while Who’s The Star didn’t rush forward from the beginning. Under Emma-Jayne Wilson, the gelding settled in the last spot, where he remained basically until the final stretch. He was urged slightly to improve; however, he did it only in the closing stages when it seemed that somebody else would land the spoils, but the son of Tonalist showed a tremendous turn of foot.
Within a few seconds, he maneuvered between his rivals and caught the leading War Bomber (37-4) in time to score a tight victory. Who’s The Star crossed the wire in 1m 41.10s, leaving War Bomber behind by half a length, with Novo Sol (127-20) running on in third.
Who’s The Star recorded his second Graded victory and first at the G2 stage, while War Bomber delivered his standard performance. Former favorite – Treason (19-5) didn’t live up to the hype, and after being quite eager to show the way, he faded in the final stretch to take only fourth place.
