Ikan romps in Magic City - again!


CINCINNATI, Ohio - The outcome of the $50,000 Magic City Classic for Alabama-breds was never in doubt as Ikan lived up to his billing, winning the one-mile event at River Downs by 13 lengths, 5 1/2 lengths less than last year.

Trained by Randy Nunley, Ikan dueled for the first half-mile before drawing off on the far turn under Bill Hollick.

Magic De Naskra, who was up close early, finished second, a length and a quarter in front of Booger Street in third.

Ikan returned $2.40 to win and ran the mile in 1.39.30 over a good track.
