Email

  Soldat (8th, $19.40) pressed Typhoon Slew through the opening six furlongs, took over into the stretch and drove clear from 2-1 favorite Powhatan County to win the Grade 3, $100,000 With Anticipation Stakes for 2-year-olds.

  Soldat, coming, off runner-up finishes in a pair of maiden special-weight sprints for Kiaran McLaughlin, handled the stretchout and surface switch to win the 1 1/16-mile With Anticipation by three lengths. The colt by War Front ran the distance in 1:41.37 under Alan Garcia.

  Typhoon Slew held on for third over Air Support.
