VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Crazy Prophet rallied from last to win the $50,000 British Columbia Cup Classic at Hastings on Sunday.

He paid $5.20 for winning the 1 1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds and up bred or sired in B.C. or Washington.  The Classic headlined the final day of racing at Hasting this year.

With Amadeo Perez up, Crazy Prophet was lagging behind the field while Power Corrupt posted a quick quarter-mile time of 23.24 seconds over a track rated good.  Power Corrupt opened up a clear lead at the six-furlong mark, but Crazy Prophet was starting to roll. He made a strong move while going four-wide around the stretch turn and took control of the race midstretch. The final margin was 2 3/4 lengths. 

Power Corrupt held on to finish second.  Sargent Rick rallied to finish third.

The final time was 1:49.93.

It was the second straight year the 4-year-old son of Rosberg won the Classic.

Trained by John Snow, he was coming off a runner-up finish going 1 3/8 miles in the Grade 3, $100,000 B.C. Premier’s Oct. 9.

“I was a little concerned about him coming back this soon after running so hard in the Premier’s” Snow said. “He was training really well, though, and he’s a petty fresh horse. We’re going to send him to California, where he will be trained by Blaine Wright.”

Baby’s Got Track wins Distaff Handicap

Baby’s Got Track paid $24.70 for her front-running win over Sailingforthesun in the $50,000 B.C. Cup Distaff Handicap. She was ridden by Silvino Morales for trainer Phil Hall, who won his first training title. The complexion of the 1 1/8-mile race changed dramatically when the second choice in the wagering, Exit City Slew, got off to a poor start.

Heavily favored Notis the Jewel never got involved while finishing fourth.

The final time was 1:51.53.

Jockey Hamel wins Debutante, Nursery

Leading rider Richard Hamel won both of the B.C. Cup races for 2-year-olds bred in B.C.

She posted a final time of 1:18.88 for 6 1/2 furlongs.

Weekend Wizard out-dueled Wise Market in the $50,000 Nursery for 2-year-olds. He paid $6.20 for his 1 1/4-length win over Wise Market, who was sent off as the favorite in the 6 1/2-furlong dash.

Trained by Craig MacPherson, he posted a final time of 1:17.37.
