Down the Stretch for August 23, 2021Down The Stretch Podcast


For the 1st time in 2 years, racing fans were allowed into Woodbine to watch the Queen’s Plate, all of them conducting themselves safely as they watched Safe Conduct and Irad Ortiz win the 162nd edition of the Plate.

By a stroke of outrageous coincidence, Safe Conduct was actually the 2nd horse with that name to win a Stakes race last week. The other was a 2 year-old trotter at Mohawk. The Gold Cup and Saucer is the biggest harness race on Prince Edward Island and we treat you to the exhilarating Vance Cameron race call.

This podcast is jammed with Stakes races from Woodbine, Mohawk and Ajax Downs and we probe the human side of versatile jockey, Ismael Mosqueira. And hang into to the end to hear the heroic act of a jockey who, in mid-race, abandoned any chance of winning to save another rider from certain disaster.
