Sam Houston: Agrivating General in stretchout


In his first start around two turns, Agrivating General ($7.40) settled behind the pace early in the $30,000 Magnolia then powered to a neck win over favorite Doc D.

Agrivating General settled in fifth behind pacesetter King Zonic early in the mile-and-70-yard race for 3-year-olds, then rallied strongly to complete the distance in 1:41.56. It was Agrivating General's his first in a stakes and second win overall from four career starts.
