Clarkland Farm and Gregory Foley’s Getaway Guy lived up to his name at Fair Grounds Monday, making the pace and then drawing off for a 4 3/4-length score in the featured $51,000 allowance optional claiming event contested at about 5 1/2-furlongs over the Stall-Wilson turf course.


Getaway Guy, trained by Greg Foley and ridden by Corey Lanerie, toured the distance in 1:05.02 after establishing early splits of 22.53 and 48.78, increased his career earnings to $49,780 with his second victory from five lifetime starts and returned mutuels of $9.80, $3.60 and $2.80.


W. S. Farish and Skara Glen Stable’s favored Close Ally, settled early, began a bid in the stretch to be clearly second best, paying $3 and $2.20 and finished 1 3/4-lengths in front of Ken Sentel and Merrill Scherer’s It Doesn’t Add Up, who returned $3.20 in the show position.
