Turfway: Double Affair in a thriller


Saturday's $50,000 Tejano Run Stakes at Turfway Park in Florence, Ky., appeared contentious on paper, and proved competitive on the track.

Three horses finished nearly together, with Double Affair eking out a head victory over Frazee's Folly and Two Point Two Mill.

Jockey Jeff Johnston squeezed Double Affair through an opening on the rail in the stretch, and he caught pacesetter Frazee's Folly in the final strides.
