On top of world

It took seven years but Brian Lynch fi­nally earned his Queen’s Plate re­demp­tion. Shaman Ghost ral­lied to cap­ture the $1-mil­lion race Sun­day at Wood­bine Race­track. The three-year-old ch­est­nut fin­ished 1 1/4-lengths ahead of Dan­ish Dy­naformer in a bat­tle of the two race favourites, de­light­ing an over­flow crowd that pro­duced a record han­dle of $11.06 mil­lion, break­ing the 2013 mark of $9.7 mil­lion. In 2008, Lynch could only look in dis­ap­point­ment as Ginger Brew fin­ished sec­ond by a head to Not Bour­bon, earn­ing leg­endary trainer Roger Attfield a record-ty­ing eighth Plate vic­tory.
