TORONTO -- Amis Holiday couldnt find a clear path to the winners circle in the Queens Plate or the Prince of Wales Stakes, so he got another chance in the Breeders Stakes. Seattle Seahawks Gear . Under a clean ride from jockey Luis Contreras on Sunday afternoon, Amis Holiday cruised by horses on the outside to win the $500,000 final jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. Second to Lexie Lou in the Queens Plate on polytrack and third to Coltimus Prime in the Prince of Wales on dirt, Amis Holiday validated trainer Josie Carrolls confidence by winning on the turf course at Woodbine Race Track. "I think it says a lot about this horse," Carroll said. "Not many horses can do all three and do them well, so I just think we have an exceptional horse." Amis Holiday, who beat long shot Interpol by three-quarters of a length, was the only horse to run all three legs of the Canadian Triple Crown. The morning-line favourite who went off as the second choice at odds of 2-to-1 showed no fatigue from his third race in seven weeks and looked to be on top of his game at 1 1/2-mile. After the Prince of Wales last month, Carroll had some reservations about bringing Amis Holiday back for the 124th running of the Breeders Stakes. He had never run on turf before, but she told owner Ivan Dalos it was worth seeing what Amis Holiday had to offer. "When I put him on the course he just lit it up. I said, Boy, weve got to take a serious look," Carroll said. "The last three days hes been wanting to eat meat. Hes been really serious. Here we are and he got it done." Amis Holiday got it done in 2:30.12, paying 6.70 to win, 3.80 to place and 2.80 to show. He impressed Carroll by saving some acceleration for the finish and galloping out strong. With Big Red Bugsy setting the pace as the early leader, Contreras kept Amis Holiday in stalking position "sitting behind the speed" but not too far back in the pack. "I wanted to keep him with the other horses, keep him busy," Contreras said. "I know my horse is very brave, hes been in trouble before. He was going great." Carroll told Contreras that "trouble always seems to find this horse and instructed him to use the big, wide turf course at Woodbine. The 28-year-old who won the 2011 Breeders Stakes aboard Pender Harbour did just that. "It was really well done on Luiss part," Carroll said. "I think because we run so few mile and a half races in North America, the jockeys dont ride as many and sometimes they think they have to take back, have to take back and when everybodys taking back youve got no pace in front and you cant close. "And I think he just really read this race well at every stage." Rolling along the outside down the stretch, Amis Holiday passed final-turn leader Squeeze the King and Interpol to hit the wire first. It was the horses "tremendous kick at the end" that Contreras said made it happen. Eurico Rosa da Silva, who rode Up With the Birds to last years Breeders Stakes title, thought he had a winning trip with Squeeze the King, who finished third. "When we got to the stretch, the pace was very slow, so I thought Im going to kick it in here because I had so much horse and I thought I was going to get the money," da Silva said. "But he ran a great race." Bangkok was fourth. Unikat, the post-time favourite at 2-to-1, finished last in the 12-horse field. Interpols jockey, Jesse Campbell, was thrilled the 18-to-1 shot made such a huge run to get up for second. "He was getting tired in the end, but he kept hanging in there," Campbell said. "He ran so hard. You have to be proud of him. The best horse won the race. Im tickled to run second." Carroll was glad to run second to Lexie Lou in the Queens Plate on July 6, even if a better trip mightve landed Amis Holiday in first with a legitimate shot at the first Canadian Triple Crown since Wando in 2003. "Its really tough to second guess a trip in the Queens Plate," Carroll said. "You cant take anything away from the filly that won that race. At the end of the day, she ran her race, she won it, she gets all the credit and we did it today." Rashaad Penny Seahawks Jersey . A criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court said his girlfriend told police they got into the argument early Thursday at his suburban Minneapolis home. Rasheem Green Seahawks Jersey . "Yes, Id like to get them in," Detroits rookie manager said. "Mother Natures going to have a say in that." Sure enough, the Tigers had their game against the Kansas City Royals postponed because of rain on Thursday. . His big 2-minute outburst in the fourth quarter Tuesday night is all that really mattered for the Dallas Mavericks.Danny Drinkwater insists he is ready to take his club form onto the international stage and make a late push for a place in England’s Euro 2016 squad. The midfielder has been a reliable presence in the heart of Leicesters table-topping team this season, and believes he can make the necessary adjustments to adapt to international football in time for this summers tournament in France.Ive been given a small chance here to show what Im capable of, so it is up to me to take it, Drinkwater told the media at a press conference at St Georges Park, having taken part in his first training session with the England senior team. Obviously international football is different, I understand that, but its just about doing your job, screening the defence, and as the ball turns over youve got to keep it. Im looking forward to the challenge.Respectfully acknowledging the competition for places in central midfield, with the likes of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson and others all pushing for a place in the side, Drinkwater added: I dont think England have ever been short of quality in midfield, or anywhere else on the pitch for that matter, but having competition for places always helps. Push yourself, and it can only benefit the country.Drinkwaters call up to the national team for the fixtures with Germany on Saturday and the Netherlands on Tuesday has capped a remarkable 12 months for the midfielder. England midfielder Danny Drinkwater takes a break during training This time last year he was not even a permanent fixture for his club, battling to find a place in a position dominated by the presence of Esteban Cambiasso, and also saw Matty James ahead of him in the pecking order.This season his form - alongside NGolo Kane - has been a major contributing factor in Leicesters push for the Premier League title, and rightly caught the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson.Asked if his England call-up was the icing on the cake after Leicesters incredible season, Drinkwater kept an important sense of perspective, with seven Premier League games remaining in which the title will be decided: There is a long way to go yet, so I dont think the cake is baked yet! Vardy (left) is put through his paces by England boss Roy Hodgson (right) Drinkwater was flanked at the press conference by his club team-mate Vardy - it is rare for two players to attend England press conferences together but the midfielder apparently felt more comfortable with a familiar face alongside him - and naturally, the subject of Leicesters Premier League chances arose on more than one occasion.It seemed as though both were enjoying the opportunity to take their minds off the pressure of the title race.My concentration now is England, and it willl be now until the game has finished on Tuesday, Drinkwater insisted. Shaquem Griffin Jersey. Everything back at Leicester is good, weve left it in a good place, and for now well focus on the Three Lions. England is all the focus we can have. After next Tuesday is finished, then well go back to thinking about Leicester. Jamie Vardy Vardy echoed the point: Its been unbelievable obviously, but in all fairness we do talk about this every week. Its not going to be hard at all [to focus on England this week], thats what we are here to do.England is all the focus we can have. After next Tuesday is finished, then well go back to thinking about Leicester.We understand people are going to ask about it when we are with our clubs, we are doing well at the top and we know people are going to keep asking - thats not a pressure, its something you cant get away from.Its just nice to have a week away and focus on England. Statistical Euro squad Who is in the Euro 2016 squad according to the stats? While Vardy is more accustomed to England duty than Drinkwater, he is still a relative novice at this level, having received his first call up to the national team last June.Despite the fact he has scored 19 Premier League goals this season, he is still not taking his place in the England squad for granted.I think Ive always got something to prove, Vardy admitted, when asked of the competition for places provided by Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck. Drinkwater (left) has been rewarded for his club form with an international call-up Theres quality throughout the team, and its down to each individual to put themselves in the gaffers mind, and see who he picks for the games.Youve always got to feel confident, it doesnt matter what position youre in, if youre picked for the squad youre in there for a reason, for the job youve been doing during the season, so Ive just got to keep doing that and keep working as hard as I can.Its going to be difficult for everyone, but having the competition that we have got, it can only benefit us and make us even better going forward. Well have to see how things go on the training pitch and when the gaffer picks the team its up to them to keep the shirts.
