Avanzare makes most of good trip in Washington Park


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – Gifted the easiest of early leads, Avanzare and jockey Chris Emigh made the most of it, surging when headed in deep stretch by the longshot Hattaash to win the Grade 3, $150,000 Washington Park Handicap by a head. The favored Mister Marti Gras, undone by a slow pace, rallied belatedly for third, a neck behind Hattaash.
