Benwill powers to victory in John Henry Stakes


OPELOUSAS, La. – Making just his second start in almost 11 months, Benwill stalked the early pace in Saturday night’s $60,000 John Henry Stakes at Evangeline Downs before powering clear turning for home to prevail by 2 1/2 lengths. Bauers Got Hours also staged a nice move the third quarter to cross the wire in second but came out turning for home to bother outer rivals. He was disqualified from second and placed sixth. Cavalero was elevated to the runner-up position via the disqualification, while Lucky Rave became the official third-place finisher.
