LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Advice has spoiled Square Eddie's return
to racing, roaring from last to first to take the $300,000
Lexington Stakes at Keeneland.
Advice, trained by Todd Pletcher and owned by WinStar Farm,
overtook Square Eddie with a spectacular move in the stretch on
Saturday then held off Conservative by a length to pick up his
first win as a 3-year-old in the last major prep race for next
month's Kentucky Derby.
Advice, with Garrett Gomez up, covered the 1 1/16 miles over
Keeneland's Polytrack in 1:43.33 and paid $33.60, $15 and $7.80.
Square Eddie, making his first start in three months, stumbled
at the start but appeared to be in control after jockey Edgar Prado
guided him to the front at the turn. He couldn't sustain the lead,
however, and faded in the final yards to finish third.
