Bellamy Stable’s Major Rules broke in stride to make the pace and prove best by 1 3/4-lengths at the wire in Thursday’s featured $49,000 allowance and $17,500 optional claiming six-furlong sprint at Fair Grounds.

 

Trained by Morris Nicks and ridden by James Graham, the winner tripped off the timer with early fractions of 21.20 and 44.11 before accomplishing a final time of 1:09.49. Major Rules returned mutuels of $6.40, $3.80 and $3.20 and increased his career earnings to $84,718 with his fifth win in 11 lifetime starts.

 

N.O. MSG Racing’s Alaco Castle, allowed to settle early, rallied to be easily second best, paying $4.20 and $3.40 while finishing 4 3/4-lengths in front of Our Blue Streaks Stable’s Only Boy, who returned $4.20 for the show spot.
