Nearctic, Summer Stakes on Woodbine Card

Nearctic, Summer Stakes on Woodbine Card

Heros Reward, winner of last year's Nearctic (Can-II), returns to defend his title in the $500,000 event on the Woodbine lawn as part of the stakes program on Pattison Canadian International Day Oct. 4. In addition, eight 2-year-olds are to line up for the $300,000 Summer Stakes (Can-III) at one mile, with a berth in the Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf on the line.

Tucci Stables' Just Rushing, who missed by less than a length in last year's Play the King Stakes (Can-IIIT), would not be denied in the 2008 edition of the $215,600 turf event, as he shook clear in mid-stretch and went on to win by 1 1/4 lengths Aug. 23 at Woodbine.

Off Duty Stays on Clock to Pull Phoenix Upset

In his last two efforts, at Arlington and Turfway Park, 4-year-old colt Off Duty proved an affinity for synthetic surfaces. In the 155th running of the $250,000 Phoenix Stakes (gr. III), the son of Yes It's True used that footing to his benefit again, taking the six-furlong event by a half-length over Keeneland's Polytrack.

In Summation Settles for Draw in Arlington Sprint

Coming off a grade I triumph on Polytrack at Del Mar last month, it was no surprise that In Summation won the $150,000 Arlington Breeders' Cup Sprint Aug. 25 at Arlington Park as the 3-5 favorite. What was unexpected is that he had to share the victory with the pacesetter Piratesonthelake, who earned a dead heat.
