Singin Vicar back to his best in Aspen


Singin Vicar was a two-time stakes winner last year at Arapahoe Park and picked a fine time to recapture his best form on Sunday when he rallied for a half-length win over defending champ Brahms Haze in the $39,915 Aspen Stakes.

Singin Vicar returned $34.80 after covering the six furlongs for statebreds in a sharp 1:09.62. John Rochabrun rode the winner for Willard Burbach and trainer James E. Jones.

Last year at Arapahoe, Singin Vicar won both the Colorado Derby and the Colorado Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Derby. The win Sunday was his first since taking the Colorado Derby in July 2008.
