Arepeatee back on the main

ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Arepeatee, fresh off a solid try in a turf stakes, will go back to the Polytrack in Wednesday's fourth race, a six-furlong allowance for Ontario-sired stock which have not won three races.

Arepeatee had a busy 2-year-old campaign last year, during which he won 1 of 8 starts. Aside from his maiden victory, the highlight of that campaign was a third-place in the $126,200 Bull Page, a six-furlong stakes for Ontario-sired runners

Arepeatee was third and sixth in his first two starts this year, both against nonwinners-of-two allowance stock. He cleared that condition going 5 1/2 furlongs May 19, when he closed strongly on the outside from well back to prevail in 1:05.49, a time that translated into a career best Beyer Speed Figure of 77.

Most recently, over yielding ground in the six-furlong Bold Ruckus Stakes, Arepeatee rallied belatedly from off slow fractions to end up third.

Chantal Sutherland will ride Arepeatee, who is named after trainer Bob Tiller's initials.

Wigamog has run three good races in as many starts this year. Wigamog graduated over $25,000 maidens in his season opener, and subsequently ran second in allowance company. He parlayed a wide stalking trip into a victory over easier Ontario-sired allowance opposition June 11, for which he got a 76 Beyer.

His trainer, Paul Buttigieg, has been winning at a 24 percent clip at the meet.

American Scout defeated Wigamog in his three-length tally over nonwinners-of-two allowance foes May 28. He competed at this level in his season debut April 25, when he wound up second while beating the upwardly mobile Bug's Boy.

Grittani figures to lead the way after breaking from the inside post. After wintering in Florida, he won a five-furlong allowance April 16, but has since fared poorly on turf and the Poly.

King Eddie is shortening up off a fading seventh-place finish in a route that was taken off the grass. He had a wide trip over an inside-biased track. He was previously a minor player at this level.

Montrose Avenue is also cutting back in distance after running hot and cold in a pair of two-turn races. He won his maiden on the front end over 6 1/2 furlongs last year, and should be forwardly placed.

Completing the field is Fifty Proof, who has been idle since capturing an allowance route in October.
