Fear No Evil foils two favorites


AUBURN, Wash. - Fear No Evil ($21) went to the front at the start and held on tenaciously to prevail by a head over Gallon in Sunay's $50,000 Auburn Stakes for 3-year-olds at Emerald Downs. The winner covered six furlongs in 1:09.60.

Margo's Gift, a slight favorite over Gallon in the wagering, finished another length back in third in the field of six.

Fear No Evil was ridden by Leslie Mawing for trainer Frank Lucarelli and owner Chris Randall. He earned $27,500 for his second win from six career starts.
