TheStakes will include female jockey Wilson, riding Big Red Bugsy.
She told the Toronto Sun that she’ll be ready to race.
“As far as I’m concerned, mental preparation is a big part of being a professional athlete. It’s something you have to be good at,” she said.
“I was mentally prepared for last Sunday being a very busy day and I did what I needed to make sure my energy level was at full capacity.”
“I like him,” Wilson said of her horse.
“He’s very young, it’s just his fourth lifetime start so (in terms of seasoning), he’s still very green and he’s still a bit of a kid … But he’s progressing. His last race was his best race and hopefully he’ll have the same mentality.”
