Mr. Bowling Knocks Down Rivals at Churchill Downs

Mr. Bowling, winner of last year's Lecomte (Grade III) at Fair Grounds, led the field of seven down the backstretch, entered the lane with a narrow advantage over Nicklaus Way and then kicked away from that rival to win the $56,430 Friday evening feature at Churchill Downs by one length.

Trained by Larry Jones and ridden by Alan Garcia, Mr. Bowling covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.00 on the fast main track. It was the second win of the day for Garcia.

Brereton Jones' homebred Mr. Bowling, a 4-year-old dark bay or brown son of Istan, collected $34,200 for Friday's victory and improved his career earnings to $249,948. His record stands at 4-1-2 from 11 starts.

Mr. Bowling returned $16.40, $8.40 and $4.20. Nicklaus Way, under Brian Hernandez Jr., returned $16 and $6 with favored Sabercat another 2 ¼-lengths back in third under Ricardo Santana Jr. and returning $3 to show.
