Thistledown: Cakewalk for Cat Singer


Cat Singer stalked pacesetter Tri Uimet into the stretch, went up to make the lead, and drew off to a 6 3/4-length win over his nine rivals in the $75,000 Governors' Buckeye Cup at Thistledown.

Acts Like a King rallied from mid-pack to be second, 1 3/4 lengths clear of Count on My Word.

Ridden by Rodney Prescott, Cat Singer got the 1 1/4 miles in 2:05.94 over the fast strip and returned $3.20.

The race was marred when Not Broke Yet broke down after being a clear second 40 yards from the wire.
