When Deweykeepumnwhy failed to qualify for the Ontario Sires Stakes' Mid-Summer Challenge, trainer Ronald Parsons dropped the two-year-old trotting colt down to the Grassroots level for two starts.

The move proved to be a wise one, as Deweykeepumnwhy picked up two straight victories. He toured Georgian Downs in 1:57.4 on July 30 and Mohawk Racetrack in 1:57.2 on August 8. The trotter will be jumping back up to the Gold Series level when the division makes its second stop at Georgian Downs on Saturday, August 17.

Deweykeepumnwhy will start from Post 4 in the fourth $42,000 Gold Series division and will take on three colts currently ranked in the Top 10. Second-ranked Utopia will start from Post 6; Special Agent Man, currently seventh, will benefit from Post 1, and eighth-ranked Aggressive will start from Post 7.

Cambridge resident Parsons conditions Deweykeepumnwhy for owner Norah Parks of New Lowell. Through five lifetime starts, the son of Deweycheatumnhowe has tallied two wins, one third and $15,628.

Mid-Summer Challenge champion Muscle Matters will be looking for his second straight victory from Post 6 in the third division for trainer Benoit Baillargeon of Rockwood and his partners Nunzio Vena of Bolton, Santo Vena of Brampton and Richard Thompson of London. Through three starts, the Muscle Mass gelding boasts a record of two wins and $98,800.

Dontcheatonmenow captured the Mid-Summer Consolation at Mohawk on August 5 and will be looking for his second victory from Post 6 in the second Gold Series division. The Deweycheatumnhowe colt is trained by Tom Durand of Puslinch for his partner Allan Smith of Oakville.

The two-year-old trotting colts will compete in Races 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 on Georgian Downs’ Saturday evening program, which gets under way at 7:25 p.m.
