Capt. Candyman Can
nipped Regal Ransom by a neck in a scratched reduced Sir Shackleton Handicap at Gulfstream Park on Sunday.
Our Edge and Nathan's H Q vied for early supremacy through quick splits of :21.86 and :44.22 with the latter gaining the advantage by 1-1/2 lengths after a half.
Capt. Candyman Can and Regal Ransom raced as a team behind the leaders and battled all the way to the wire in a thrilling finish.
Julien Leparoux rode the winner for Ian Wilkes and the slight favorite paid $5.60.
Nathan's H Q just held the show over Ibboyee. Disappointing second betting choice safe Trip finished 5h and Our Edge was far back in last. Coffee Boy, D'Funnybone, and Unbridled Heat scratched.
