John Stavropoulos’ Trelawny broke in stride to make the pace and then held on gamely in the late stages to capture Sunday’s featured $51,000 allowance/optional $40,000 claiming grass dash at Fair Grounds by a head.

 

Ridden by James Graham and trained by Tom Amoss, Trelawny paid $6.60, $3.60 and $2.60 as the choice of the fans and toured the about 5 1/2-furlong distance over the firm Stall-Wilson turf course in 1:04.05 after early splits of 22.48 and 46.39. The 5-year-old gelding increased his career earnings to $316,132 with his seventh win in 23 lifetime starts.

 

Sadie and Ronnie Moore’s Uno Ducksy, never far back, rallied late to be clearly second best, paying $4.20 and $3 while finishing a length to the good of Louie Roussel III’s Harvest Home, who paid $3.40 to show.
