Terry Hamilton’s Hammers Terror pounded out a popular 2 3/4-length victory in Thursday’s feature at Fair Grounds, an allowance $50,000 optional claiming for 2-year-olds at a mile and 70 yards that offered a purse of $49,000.

 

Ridden by James Graham, who was riding his third winner of the afternoon, and trained by Mike Stidham, who was saddling his second, Hammers Terror pressed the pace, took command entering the stretch and won while kept to urging. The Artie Schiller colt toured the distance in 1:44.72 and increased his career earnings to $66,512 with his third win in three lifetime starts. He paid mutuels of $2.80, $2.40 and $2.10 as the odds-on choice in the wagering.

 

Stidham confirmed after the race that Hammers Terror would be pointed to the Grade III Lecomte Stakes for 3-year-olds, also at a mile and 70 yards, on Road to the Derby Kickoff Day Jan. 21.

 

Raut LLC’s Adena’s Chance rallied late to be easily second best, paying $4.20 and $2.40 while finishing 4 1/4-lengths to the good of Gus King’s M One, who paid $3.40.

 

Ron Moquett’s Hard Nosed made the pace with splits of 23.92 and 48.05 before tiring.
