Email

Street Magician led at every call to win the $100,000 Karl Boyes Memorial at Presque Isle Downs Sunday evening.

Trained by Michael Trombetta, Street Magician set a track record, covering the 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:02.24 over the Tapeta surface. Street Magician returned $7.20 to win.

Jockey Julian Pimental sent Street Magician to the front when the gate opened on the field of six. Pimental asked the 5-year-old son of Street Cry for his best in upper stretch and he drew off to win by 2 3/4 lengths. Favorite Tempo Five finished second, a neck in front of Rouse the Cat in third.

Ten horses were entered in the event, but four late scratches Carnack's Choice, Drunken Love, Honest Trip, and Man of Danger left a filed of six. Castles in the Sky stumbled at the start and unseated jockey Scott Spieth.
