After making a Grand Circuit splash at four, speedy pacer Poseidon Seelster has returned to the racetrack after a four-month break and appears ready to tussle with the top class at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Lining up in a field of five during the opening qualifier on a chilly Friday morning at Woodbine Mohawk Park, the now five-year-old gelded son of Sunshine Beach made every call a winning one in his first appearance of 2022. With driver Trevor Henry at the controls, Poseidon Seelster paced through panels of :30, :58.2 and 1:26.2 before opening up in the stretch with a :28.3 closer to trip the timer nearly seven lengths the best in a time of 1:55.
Owned by trainer Don Lindsey of Fergus along with Paul Kleinpaste, Orangeville, Garth Bechtel of Meaford and expat Will Alempijevic of Forest Hills, N.Y., Poseidon Seelster (Sunshine Beach - Porsche Seelster) made 12 starts as a four-year-old, won three and finished in the top three in half of his seasonal starts. He took his lifetime mark of 1:47.4 in a leg of the Graduate Series at The Meadowlands and finished second by a head to Cattlewash in the Graduate Final. The career bankroll of the OSS graduate stands at $256,080.
