Racing began at Woodbine Racetrack April 15. Kingview Farms’ Peggy O will represent the first starter of 2017 for trainer Catherine Day Phillips on April 23, in race 8.
Catherine sent out sets of horses for training on April 22 with owners Sean Fitzhenry, David Anderson and George Ledson coming out to watch from the rail on the main track.
Sean and Dorothy Fitzhenry’s homebred filly, Dixie Moon, (pictured above) by Curlin out of their mare Dixie Chicken (also raced and trained by Catherine Day Phillips) looked good training with Candice Dixon aboard.
Owners David Anderson of Anderson Farms Ontario Inc. and George Ledson are partnering (along with John Fielding) on a few horses in training with Catherine Day Phillips this year.
