Rahy’s Attorney carries Canada’s hopes in Mile Championship


TORONTO, November 21 - Rahy's Attorney, who captured the Grade 1, $1-million Woodbine Mile in September, looks to win one for Canada in the prestigious Mile Championship at Japan's Kyoto Racecourse on November 23.

The four-year-old gelded son of Crown Attorney will be racing for a winner's share of $952,000 plus a $950,000 bonus awarded to the winner of both the Woodbine Mile and the Mile Championship.


Owned by Ellie Boje Farm, Jim and Jean MacLellan, Mitch Peters and Dean Read, Rahy's Attorney has won seven of 18 lifetime starts, along with two seconds and four thirds. His purse earnings stand at $1,084,234.

This season, the Ontario-bred has two wins, one second and one third from seven starts. The bay's other 2008 score came in the Grade 3 Connaught Cup on May 25, a half-length score at 16-1.

Of the seven stakes events he has contested, Rahy's Attorney, the only foreign entry in the Mile Championship, has triumphed on four occasions.

He will break from post 10 in the 18-horse field and will be ridden by Woodbine-based jockey Slade Callaghan.

HPItv will cover three races from Kyoto, including the MileChampionship, which is slated as Race 11. Post time is 1:40 a.m. ET.
