TORONTO, July 31, 2019 – Keep On Truckin, a two-year-old son of Society’s Chairman, looks to make his stakes debut a winning one in the $125,000 Clarendon Stakes, one of two ($100,000 Duchess) added-money tilts on Saturday afternoon’s card of racing at Woodbine.
Bred by Tim Meeuse and Arika Everatt-Meeuse, the Ontario-bred turned plenty of heads in his career bow on July 7 at the Toronto oval.
Sent off as the 3-5 mutuel favourite, Keep On Truckin was in high gear early, holding a half-length advantage at the three-sixteenths call of the five-furlong main track race. The chestnut was 2 ½-lenghts on top at the three-eighths mark, increasing his advantage to 6 ½-lengths at the stretch call.
At the wire, the Catherine Day Phillips trainee was 11 ¾-lengths clear of his closest rival.
