Attention to all European racing fans and horsemen - Canada’s Define The World will soon have his bags packed, and he’s never been better!
The six-year-old son of Duke Of York-Venice Holiday turned in North America’s fastest mile of the season when he stopped the teletimer in 1:52.1 in Monday’s $45,000 Open Trot at Woodbine Racetrack. The victory was the fifth consecutive tally for the John Bax trainee.
Paul MacDonell put Define The World right on the engine, and the OSS graduate ripped through fractions of :26.4, :55.3 and 1:24.1 before uncorking a :28-second closing panel to win the featured event by 3-1/4 lengths over two-time O’Brien Award winner San Pail. Slave Dream, who was a winner in the Preferred class last Monday at Woodbine, was third.
Bred and owned by Al Libfeld of Pickering, ON, Define The World won for the sixth time this season and for the 30th time in his career. He’ll head overseas to compete in the Oslo Grand Prix in Norway on May 14 with a career bankroll that now stands at $1,463,070.
