ETOBICOKE, Ontario -- The queen of the turf, Tepin, has taken her talents north of the border for Saturdays $1 million Woodbine Mile, but is she poised to bring her A game off a three-month layoff?Tepin is unbeaten in her last seven outings. Her memorable victory over males in last years Grade 1 Breeders Cup Mile enabled her to clinch the Eclipse Award for the champion female turf runner. This year, Tepin picked up right where she left off by winning all five of her races. Following a pair of graded stakes scores at Tampa Bay Downs, she took the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley by five lengths at Keeneland and then won the Grade 2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile.In June, owner Robert Masterson and trainer Mark Casse got ambitious for Tepins most recent start, shipping her to England for the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes going a straight mile at the prestigious Royal Ascot meet. Over soft ground that wasnt to her liking and without Lasix, she prevailed by a half-length in a gritty performance under regular rider Julien Leparoux.Tepin has been working at Saratoga, where she spent most of the summer under the watchful eye of assistant trainer Norm Casse.Shes always run well fresh, Norm Casse said. In that way, Im confident. Her works were the way that we like them to be. All indicators are shes ready. Im cautiously optimistic.The 20th running of the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile attracted a field of eight and heads a spectacular card that also includes the Grade 1 Northern Dancer Turf, the Grade 2 Canadian, and the Grade 3 Ontario Derby.The Woodbine Mile and Canadian are Breeders Cup Win and Youre In qualifiers. The Mile has yielded four BC Mile winners, including Wise Dan and Court Vision.The Woodbine Mile, the 12th and final race on the card, will be broadcast on TSN2 in Canada from 6-7 p.m. Eastern.

A late pick five has been added, with a $100,000 minimum.There is no show wagering on the Woodbine Mile.Key ContendersTepin, by Bernstein Last 3 Beyers: 102-107-107From the outside, post 8, she figures to track the projected pacesetter, Arod, before making her move.Shes very versatile, said Norm Casse. Ideally, wed like her to sit off somebody. I think she relaxes a little better that way. The slower they go early, the more effective her kick is late. If she gets comfortable early, shes going to be really tough to beat.The only filly or mare to win the Woodbine Mile was Ventura, who prevailed off a five-month layoff in 2009 for trainer Bobby Frankel.Mutakayyef, by Sea The StarsBy far the best of the Europeans invaders, the 5-year-old is coming off a troubled third behind the highly accomplished Postponed and Group 1 winner Highland Reel in the Group 1 Juddmonte International at York. He was previously victorious in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot.He was gelded over the winter and this year has won 2 of 3 starts.He has made a significant step up, said trainer William Haggas. He has improved since his gelding operation last winter. His form is strong, although not quite as strong as that shown by Tepin.Arod, by TeofiloHis fruitful 2015 campaign included a second to the brilliant miler Solow in a Group 1 at Epsom. His recent form was poor before a third-place finish in the Group 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood on Aug. 27.I was very happy with his last race, said trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam. My horses had been very sick, and he was the same, so, really, it was like his first run of the year.Assistant trainer Gary Hindmarch said Arod could lead the way Saturday.He likes to be in front, but if someone tears off, hes quite happy to sit behind, said Hindmarch. The ground is a key factor with him. He wants it like the road.Mr. Owen, by Invincible Spirit Beyer: 97He was a nonthreatening sixth in last years Woodbine Mile after getting away slowly and racing three wide on the turn. He has been idle since July 17, when he wound up second in the Group 3 Prix Messidor at Maisons-Laffitte in France.Full Mast, by Mizzen Mast Last 3 Beyers: 103-96-102He was a Group 3 winner in France before joining trainer Bill Motts barn this year.

Im trying to stay focused, stay confident, and go out there and give us a chance to win every night.I need to go out there and make the saves Im supposed to make and hopefully make a few Im not supposed to make.Connor McDavid scored on a breakaway in the second period and Milan Lucic added an empty-netter to help the Western Conference-leading Oilers improve to 7-1-0.Talbots only blemish this season was a 6-2 drubbing on Oct. 16 to Buffalo. Talbot allowed all six of those goals, but he has since rebounded impressively.After that game I told myself what I told myself last year: just go out there and try not to do too much, make the saves I am supposed to make, start there and then build off of that, he said. I did that the next night out. I am in that kind of groove right now and hopefully I can keep it going.Ryan Miller had 25 saves for Vancouver and fell to 12-1-1 in his career against the Oilers. The Canucks, 0-3-1 since starting the season with four wins, were shut out for the second straight game and havent scored since the third period against Anaheim on Sunday.We have to keep grinding away and get some goals, Canucks captain Henrik Sedin said. Its a long season. If you keep playing the same way over and over you are going to bury those (chances) sooner or later. Its a matter of us keeping it going and not change things just because were not scoring right now. Its going to come.A quiet first period erupted midway when Erik Gudbranson took exception to Zack Kassians check and traded blows with the ex-Canuck. Soon after boos rained down for locall product Lucic when the hulking Oilers forward took a roughing penalty, but the Canucks squandered the power-play opportunity.ddddddddddddThere was more end-to-end action in the second with Jannik Hansen getting a point-blank shot from the slot that Talbot turned aside. The Oilers goalie also made a spectacular glove save on Markus Granlund midway that had the large contingent of Oilers fans cheering.McDavid got the Oilers on the scoreboard when he took a backhand pass from Lucic and wheeled past the Canucks defense to slip the puck through Millers legs with 8:29 left in the second. It extended McDavids league lead in points to 12 (five goals, seven assists).I knew if I got it to him he was gone, Lucic said. I dont care who you match up against him, with his wheels, he is going to beat most guys up the ice and he showed it tonight.Talbot was equally impressive early in the third as he swatted away Henrik Sedins slap shot. At the other end, Miller faced down McDavid on another breakaway, but this time made a fast glove save to keep his team in the game.(McDavid) was hard to handle tonight, said Vancouver coach Willie Desjardins. He created three or four great chances just with his speed.Lucic added the empty-net goal with 1:20 left to put the game out of reach.Game notesMcDavid has at least a point in four straight games (two goals, four assists). ...
