In a field including six first-time starters, Squire Creek (3, c, Uncle Mo-Covenant, by Speightstown) proved much the best, scampering home a six-length winner over the well-related 4-5 choice Wicked Again (Gun Runner) in the six furlong test at Fair Grounds Thursday. Off the blocks alertly, the 5-2 second choice vied for the early lead with Wicked Again through opening fractions of :21.65 and :44.92. Head-to-head with that rival turning for home, the $525,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga graduate edged clear in early stretch and blasted clear late en route to an easy victory. Final time for the sprint was 1:10.05. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,000. O-WinStar Farm LLC, Twin Creeks Racing Stables, LLC, 4 G Racing, LLC and Ortyl, Ronald. B-WinStar Farm (KY). T-Bad Cox.
