Prairie Meadows: Beau Watch holds on


Under Alex Birzer, Beau Watch ($22.60) took the lead on the backstretch and held off the late charge of Whimsy to score a neck victory in the $50,000 Wild Rose Stakes at Prairie Meadows.

Beau Watch, trained by Eric Reed, covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.29. Whimsy finished four lengths clear of the 3-5 favorite, Platinum Ballet, who flattened out through the stretch.
