Sunday stakes recap (8/4/02)


In other Sunday stakes:

* Clearly a Queen won the Grade 3 Eatontown Handicap by a nose over Laurica at Monmouth Park. In other supporting stakes on the Haskell card: Autonomy split horses with a furlong remaining to defeat Revved Up by three-quarters of a length in the $65,000 Battlefield. Entitlement improved his turf record to three wins in four starts with a victory in the $65,000 Lamplighter Stakes for 3-year-olds on the turf. The New Jersey-bred Summer Swing displayed his tremendous late kick when he closed from sixth to catch True Passion and win the $65,000 Teddy Drone Stakes by a neck.

* The Christophe Clement-trained Calista defeated the Bill Mott-trained Stylish to win the $100,000 Spicy Living Sweepstakes at Rockingham Park. Ridden by Joe Hampshire, Calista registered her second victory in the U.S. for Clement and kept Stylish from becoming the fifth runner to win the Rockingham Breeders' Cup and the Spicy Living in the same meet.

* Turtle Bow took advantage of the late scratch of Banks Hill to win the Group 2 Prix d'Astarte at Deauville in France. A daughter of Turtle Island, Turtle Bow led at the three-sixteenths pole under Christophe Soumillon and defeated Dedication by a half-length as the 5-2 favorite. It was another two lengths back to Proudwings, the 3-1 second choice. The winning time for the mile was 1:40.50. Andre Fabre scratched Banks Hill after rain on Saturday night left Deauville's straight mile very soft.

* Kaieteur posted a mild 9-2 surprise with a two-length score over Noroit in the 1 1/4-mile Group 1 Bayerisches Zuchtrennen in Munich, Germany. Imperial Dancer was third with Equerry fourth. Trained by Brian Meehan, Kaieteur was clocked in 2:09.85 on soft ground.

* Colterkind, a $12,500 claim on May 24, completed a rocket ride to the top of the local handicap division with a nose victory over Road Afleet in the $60,000 Governor's Handicap at 6 1/2 furlongs at Emerald Downs. Colterkind, who posted his fourth straight win, led throughout under Sandi Gann to prevail in 1:14.60 as the 3-1 second choice in a field of seven. Road Afleet, the 9-5 favorite, had two lengths over third place finisher Jumron Won.

* Doubly Fun ($6) captured her third consecutive Ms. Southern Ohio Stakes at River Downs. She won the stakes for Ohio-bred fillies and mares by four lengths.

* Mr. Technique ($8.80), a troubled third in his debut when he was spooked after seeing the ferris wheel on the turn at the Solano County Fair, scored a wire-to-wire victory in the $52,770 Redwood Empire Stakes at the Sonoma County Fair.

* Hadif's Allstar, the favorite, outlasted Princess Birdeye in a spirited stretch duel to prevail by a head in the $40,000 Rebel Stakes at Louisiana Downs.
