LEXINGTON, Ky. &ndash; Aikenite was terrific in winning a seven-furlong allowance race last fall over the Polytrack at Keeneland, so it was something of d&eacute;j&agrave; vu Saturday when the 4-year-old colt powered to his first stakes victory in the Grade 2, $175,000 Commonwealth Stakes at Keeneland.\r\nWith John Velazquez riding for Dogwood Stable and trainer Todd Pletcher, Aikenite laid back early before packing his usual stretch punch, running off from the race-long leader, Cool Bullet, to prevail by 2 1/4 lengths. The Florida-bred colt by Yes It&rsquo;s True returned $4.60 as second choice in a field of five older horses after finishing seven furlongs in 1:22.35.\r\nCool Bullet, with Shaun Bridgmohan up, held second, another two lengths before Le Grand Cru. Wise Dan, the even-money favorite, made a brief middle move before flattening out to be fourth, while Taqarub was eased down the stretch to round out the order.\r\nAikenite was a rallying second in his only prior start this year, a March 5 allowance at Gulfstream.\r\n&ldquo;We&rsquo;ve been looking forward to running Aikenite here for quite a while now,&rdquo; Pletcher said.\r\nAikenite now has won 4 of 17 career starts, with the $108,500 winner&rsquo;s share lifting his career bankroll to $487,460. The graded stakes win was the eighth all time at Keeneland for Dogwood, making the syndication pioneer the 17th owner in track history to earn a gold tray. The stable&rsquo;s first graded stakes win here came in 1971.\r\nVelazquez and Pletcher also combined a race earlier with Stratford Hill to win the Shakertown, the first of four stakes on the Blue Grass Stakes card.
