Grand Contender joins exclusive club with Lone Star Handicap win


GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - Grand Contender became just the third horse in Lone Star Park history to sweep the meet’s two richest dirt races when he rolled to a four-length win over Donoharm in the Grade 3, $200,000 Lone Star Park Handicap on Monday. Last month, Grand Contender captured the Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile to join a club that in 17 years had been populated by only Dixie Dot Com (2001) and Master Rick (2013).
