Deuces Are Wild

The number two figured prominently at Woodbine Friday as the Number 2 horse raced to victory in the first two races of the day at the big Toronto racetrack.

Alan Garcia rode Colleen’s Sailor, below, across the wire in the first race of the day.

The Roger Attfield-trained 7-year-old, who is also a great-grandson of the famous 1977 Triple Crown-winner Seattle Slew, helped Garcia take his first win of the day.
