The co-feature on Woodbine Mile day was the $750,000 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes (G1) for older horses going 1 1/2 miles on the E.P. Taylor Turf Course. A field of 9 went to the gate on Sunday afternoon, with European invader Redwood sent off as the 9-5 favorite off a 2nd place finish in the Grand Prix de Deauville (G1) after winning the Glorious (G3) at Goodwood. In to challenge him included last year's winner (on appeal) Marsh Side as the 2-1 second choice, winner of the Sky Classic (G2) last out, and 7-2 third choice Spice Route, off his win in the Singspiel (G3).

Fifty Proof went to the lead on the clubhouse turn and he set a pace of 25.24, 51.20, 1:16.25, and 1:41.12 with Marsh Side pressing from a length behind. On the turn, Marsh Side tired to eventually finish 8th, allowing Fifty Proof to open up a 1 1/2 length lead on favorite Redwood at the top of the stretch through 1 1/4 miles in 2:05.42. Fifty Proof stubbornly held onto the lead to the 1/8 pole, but Redwood was up to the task, coming through on the inside to prevail by 1/2 a length in 2:28.97 over the firm turf course. It was another 1 1/4 length back to Windward Islands third.
