Columbus: Bevys Best all the way


Bevys Best took advantage of the speed-favoring surface at Columbus to claim his first stakes victory with a 5 1/2-length score in the $11,025 Hall of Fame Stakes on Saturday.

Bevys Best, trained by Larry Staroscik and with Armando Martinez riding, took control at the very beginning of the six-furlong sprint, posting a mild $8.40 upset over 6-5 favorite My Secret Star, who finished second.

Bevys Best covered the distance in 1:12.60 over a fast track.
