Abidon outduels heavy favorite


ALTOONA, Iowa - Abidon ($15.20), hooking up with 1-9 favorite Hesablumin midway through the final turn, prevailed by a nose in the $60,000 Iowa Stallion Stakes at Prairie Meadows.

Joel Campbell rode the winner, who covered the mile and 70 yards in 142.28. It was nine lengths back to the third- place finisher, CJ Ramrod.

The final three races on the 10-race card were not run because of a thunderstorm.
