Candid Glen ($19.60) wins his third straight Connally Breeders' Cup Turf Saturday night at Sam Houston Race Park.

Candid Glen won the $200,000 for the third consecutive year on Saturday night when he darted clear by a length and a half over runner-up Red Mountain and third-place finisher Dynameaux in the mile and an eighth race, which was the richest of five stakes on the card at Sam Houston Race Park.

Attendance ontrack was 8,236, while handle on the 10-race card was $3,355,424.

Candid Glen($19.60), the first three-time winner of the Connally, sat closer to the pace than usual, settling in fourth while Runaway Choice led the field through an opening half-mile in 50.51 seconds with Maysville Slew and Dynameaux in close pursuit. Candid Glen advanced along the rail, split horses in the stretch, and went on to cover the distance over firm turf in 1:53.21.

Candid Glen's previous wins in the Connally had come in photo finishes, but the outcome was much easier to determine Saturday.

"I didn't have to come back and see if I'd won," said jockey E.J. Perrodin, who has been aboard Candid Glen for all three of his Connally wins. "He's just incredible. He gives you his heart."

Candid Glen earned $133,800 for the win, which improved his career earnings to $805,130. He has now won 9 of 33 starts for owner Glen Warren and trainer Andrew Leggio, Jr.

Testify gets second Turf Sprint

Testify($5.60) found another gear late and surged past pacesetter Wudantunoit to win the $50,000 Sam Houston Turf Sprint by three-quarters of a length. It was another length and three-quarters back in third to Ski Bum.

Testify, who also won the Turf Sprint in 2001, covered five furlongs over firm turf in 59.11 seconds. Jockey Roman Chapa was aboard for trainer Randy Morse.

Testify earned $30,000 for the win, which improved his earnings to $387,972. He has now own 9 of 26 starts for Robert S. Mitchell Trust.

Change of tactics wins Jersey Lilly

Presumed Innocent($15.20) changed her running style and rallied from off the pace for a three-length win over Sound Of Gold in the $50,000 Jersey Lilly. It was another three and three quarter lengths back in third to Distant Valley.

Presumed Innocent, who had set the pace in most of her two-turn races, settled about five lengths behind Sound of Gold, who ran the opening half-mile of the Jersey Lilly in 49.09 seconds with Distant Valley in close pursuit. Presumed Innocent began to advance on the final turn, and rallied up the rail to cover the distance over firm turf in 1:46.14.

Jockey Shane Sellers rode the winner for trainer Charles Simon.

Presumed Innocent earned $30,000 for the win, which was her seventh from 31 starts. She has now earned $312,040, and on Saturday was making her first start for McKee Stables.

Morgan sweeps Stallion Stakes

Trainer Tommie Morgan won both divisions of the $75,000 Texas Stallion Stakes for 3-year-olds when Call Me Lefty($2.40) rolled to an eight length win at 1-5 in the colts and geldings division, and Lady Mallory($4) won the fillies division by five and a half lengths over Hay Allison.

Call Me Lefty, pacesetter in the Grade 3 Lecomte last month at Fair Grounds, was content to sit in second behind Crab Creek early while that one led the field through an opening half-mile of 49.04 seconds in the mile and a sixteenth race. Call Me Lefty took over from there, and increased his lead through the stretch, covering the distance over a track rated good in 1:48.15.

John Jacinto rode the winner for Christine Moore Family Limited Partnership.

In the fillies division, Lady Mallory, racing without blinkers for the first time, rallied from last to first. Felipe Valdez rode the winner for owner Ed Few.
