Dos and Don'ts wins Sunland closing day stakes


Stalking the early pace under clever handling from rider Casey Lambert, Dos and Don'ts kicked clear in the final yards to capture Tuesday's closing day Daylight Spring Stakes at Sunland Park. Odds-on favorite Sky Jedi finished three-quarters of a length back in second followed by Accolades N Praise.

Trained by Johnnie Nall, Dos and Don'ts ($8.20) has won his last three starts, including a maiden score at Santa Anita last fall. The son of Petionville covered the six furlongs in 1:09.31 and picked up his biggest payday to increase his career earnings to over $86,000.

Also on Tuesday, Chocolate Mountain surged in deep stretch to take a neck victory in the $50,000 Getaway Handicap at 870 yards. Trained by Wesley Giles, the 3-year-old son of Panther Mountain won his third straight race at the distance. The 4-5 favorite dug in with determination to defeat Cach D Fish in a driving finish.
