The 6 year old horse is no stranger to Woodbine winning his two previous starts there. Turfiste has raced at 7 different tracks in the last year, on all surfaces and faced the challenges of one and two turn races. The Michael Catania trainee was part of the early pace and then held off late challengers in the $8,000 event at 7 panels. Owned by Nichange Enterprises, Ltd. and ridden by Matt Moore, the dark bay stopped the timer at 1:24.58 and paid $6.20 to win. Sired by Military, Turfiste has now won 8 races and finished in the money 15 times from 30 career starts, and has accumulated $235,000 in earnings.
