TORONTO — Mondialiste came on in deep stretch to win the 19th running of the Grade 1 $1-million Ricoh Woodbine Mile on a wet, cool Sunday afternoon.

Jockey Feargal Lynch kept the 7/2 choice well back for much of the race before coming on strong late on a yielding Woodbine Racetrack turf — the result of rain throughout the day.

Mondialiste won in an unofficial time of 1:36.66 to earn a berth in next month’s Breeders’ Cup Mile at Keeneland in Kentucky.

Lea, the 2/1 favourite, was second ahead of Obviously in the field reduced to nine with the scratches of Za Approval and Grand Arch. 

Earlier, Canadian Emma-Jayne Wilson guided Ontario-bred Interpol, a 10/1 longshot, to victory in the Grade 1 $300,000 Northern Dancer Turf over a mile and a half while Woodbine’s Luis Contreras rallied Strut the Course to win the $300,000 Canadian Stakes, a Grade 2 1 1/8-mile grass event
