THE CANADIAN TRIPLE

The Canadian Triple Crown differs from its U.S. counterparts in one major respect: While the United States triple is conducted entirely on dirt and the English on grass, Canada has chosen to mix it up, thereby demanding the most from its competitors. The Queen's Plate-G1C and Prince of Wales-G1C are run over the main dirt ovals at Woodbine and Fort Erie, while the Breeders' Stakes-G1C rounds out the demanding trio at 1 1/2 miles on Woodbine's Marshall turf course. To win the Canadian Triple, a horse must not only be tough, durable, and of the highest class, but also extremely versatile.

"Canada has a new hero today...He can't skate or throw a baseball, but he can sure motor. It's Peteski!"
-Rick Fraser, Toronto Star.

Peteski had never run on grass, but any possible doubts as to his ability to handle the new surface were eclipsed when he turned in an eye-popping seven-furlong turf drill of 1:22 4/5 prior to the Breeders', a move Attfield termed simply as "unbelievable."

"Peteski is living, breathing, quality speed..."
-Neil Campbell, The Blood Horse

Such was his reputation by late August, that only three Canadian-foaled rivals could be lured out to compete against him for the $218,333 purse. The race revealed no surprises. At 1-10 odds, Earle Mack's colt went right to the front out of the gate, opened up two lengths early, and ultimately "drew off under no urging in the stretch to win with ears pricked" by six lengths.

Peteski had tested himself that afternoon, winging freely on the lead, accelerating as the furlongs passed, and running his final quarter faster than his first.
