Canterbury Park: Scooter Roach best


Scooter Roach prevailed over seven rivals in the $75,000 John Bullit Stakes at Canterbury Park.

The top five finishers were necks apart at the furlong pole of the 1 1/16-mile turf race. The even-money favorite, Scooter Roach turned back the bid of Dontbotherknocking to prevail by a head. Wally's Choice finished third, another 1 1/2 lengths behind.

Scooter Roach ($4), ridden by Jesse Campbell for trainer David Kassen, completed the 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.52 over firm going.
