El Areeb checked in fourth as the 13-10 favorite in his Parx unveiling June 11, and reemerged in a sloppy off the turfer here Sept. 30, checking in second after blowing the break and coming with an impressive wide run. He put it all together with an 8 3/4-length romp over this track and trip last time Oct. 15. Emerging from the pack to show the way, the $100,000 KEESEP yearling turned $340,000 OBS March juvenile doled out splits of :22.43 and :45.48 before taking some heat turning for home. The grey quickly disposed of his pursuer, however, and galloped away with an impressive stride to score. The winner has a yearling half-brother by Gio Ponti and his dam was most recently bred to Morning Line. For more on the winning connections, click here.
