ETOBICOKE, Ontario — Thatlookonyerface blew up the tote board at 32-1 while prevailing in a three-way photo in the Grade 3 Marine Stakes at Woodbine on Saturday.

Thatlookonyerface benefited from a ground-saving ride from Gary Boulanger, who had the son of Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird the trailer in the six-horse field on the first turn.

Riker set honest fractions in the 1 1/16- mile route, with Bear’sway in close proximity. Greatest Game and Dragon Bay both rallied wide into contention on the far turn, as Thatlookonyerface closed inside.

Thatlookonyerface ($66.70) went around a tiring Riker at the eighth pole, before going back to the rail en route to a nose win over Bear’sway. Greatest Game was another nose back in third, a neck in front of Dragon Bay. The favored Riker wound up fifth.

“He fought all the way to the wire, and we got the right bob,” said Boulanger.

Thatlookonyerface earned $90,000 of the $150,000 purse for the partnership of Barry Butzer and trainer Dave Cotey.

Over a wet Tapeta surface, the final time was 1:45.14.
