Code of Honor proves uncatchable

Email

Code of Honour helped control the pace from the start before kicking clear by 2 1/2 lengths in the late going to capture Friday night's $50,000 Inaugural Stakes at Evangeline Downs.

Favorite Citizen, the 3-2 favorite, finished more than three lengths clear of And Music Came for second.

Trained by William Bennett and ridden by Diego Saenz, Code of Honour ($12.60) picked up his third career victory and his first stakes. A son of Omega Code, Code of Honour covered the six furlongs in 1:10.86 over a fast track.
