Allowed to settle early, Team Block’s Ice Climber commenced a rally outside the leaders when set down for the drive and wore down Last Call Racing Partnership’s Musicstreet Menace in the late stages to be best by a length in Saturday’s featured 1 1/16-mile $47,000 allowance feature over the Stall-Wilson turf course at Fair Grounds.

 

Ridden by Jamie Theriot, who was scoring his third victory of the afternoon, Ice Climber toured the distance over the yielding going in 1:48.62. The winner paid $8.40, $4.40 and $3.40 and increased his career earnings to $73,060 while scoring his third victory in nine lifetime starts.

 

Musicstreet Menace, never far back, gained the advantage briefly, could not withstand the winner but was clearly second best, finishing 1 3/4-lengths to the good of Alejandro Leon’s Carson Connection. Musicstreet Menace returned $5.60 and $4 and Carson Connection paid $5.80 for the show.

 

Joseph Rauch and David Zell’s Cedros made the early pace in fractions of 25.53 and 52.22 before tiring to eighth in the stretch
