Lexie Lou captures the Queen's Plate

We Miss Artie takes fourth

Lexie Lou, with jockey Patrick Husbands aboard, won the 155th running of The Queen's Plate at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto on Sunday.

The Woodbine Oaks winner, the 3/1 second choice, covered the 1 1/4-mile race in an unofficial time of 2:03.94 on the polytrack at Woodbine Racetrack to earn trainer Mark Casse his first-ever Plate victory.

Ami's Holiday finished second in the 15-horse field, with Asserting Bear taking third in Canada's most prestigious race.

We Miss Artie, the 9/5 favourite, was fourth.

The second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown is the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes, which will go July 29 at Fort Erie Racetrack.

Husbands rode Lexie Lou to victory at the Woodbine Oaks on the same track just under a month ago.

The three-year-old is trained by Mark Caisse and owned by Gary Barber, the chairman and CEO of MGM.
