Hastings: Stratoplan best


VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Stratoplan, ($5) moved to the top of the 3-year-old division at Hastings with a comfortable five-length win in the $64,700 Burnaby Breeders' Cup.

Stratoplan broke alertly under leading rider Nicola Wright, and then settled in behind Gamblin Caper and Roscoe Pito, who were setting sprint-like fractions. Wright called upon Stratoplan just past the three-eighths pole and he easily went by the leaders by the time they reached the quarter pole.
