Dan Lynch, Ken Sentel and Merrill Scherer’s Santo Gato, away alertly and quickly in command, made the pace and drew off late to capture Friday’s $49,000 allowance grass dash at Fair Grounds by two and a half lengths.

 

Ridden by leading jockey Rosie Napravnik and trained by part-owner Merrill Scherer, Santa Gato toured the about 5 1/2-furlong distance over the firm Stall-Wilson turf course in 1:04.72 following early splits of 23.05 and 47.14. The altered son of Kitten’s Joy paid $23, $8 and $5.80 and increased his earnings to $110,180 with his second victory in 18 career starts.

 

Ike and Dawn Thrash’s Heir Joe found his best stride late to gain the place, paying $3.20 and $2.80 while finishing a head in front of Gainesway Thoroughbreds and Thoroughbred Legends Racing Stable’s Temp, who returned $6 in the show spot.
