Woodbine: Hotep wins Wando Stakes


Favored Hotep kicked in strongly through the stretch en route to a decisive score in the $112,600 Wando Stakes. With Patrick Husbands aboard, Hotep covered a mile and a sixteenth in a fairly quick 1:43.55 in the prep for the July 4 Queen's Plate.

In the 7th race, favored Southdale came close to the six-furlong Polytrack record when he won an allowance in 1:08.59. It was his first start in nearly a year.
