Trained by Michelle Lovell and ridden by Kerwin Clark, Canon Man accomplished the about 5 1/2-furlongs over the grass rated “good” in 1:05 flat after establishing early fractions of 22.79 and 46.97, increased his career earnings to $150,900 with his fifth win in 10 lifetime starts and returned mutuels of $18.40, $10 and $5.60.
