Uncaptured draws away to win the Swynford Stakes by 3 1/4 lengths at Woodbine.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Uncaptured extended his unbeaten record to four races Sunday at Woodbine with a comfortable score in the $168,900 Swynford Stakes for 2-year-olds.

Uncaptured tracked the dueling leaders Five Iron and Dan the Tin Man in seven-furlong sprint and then went by them nearing the eighth pole before drawing clear to win by 3 1/4 lengths in 1:22.49.

Patrick Husbands rode Uncaptured, who banked $113,400 for owner John Oxley and trainer Mark Casse. Uncaptured paid $2.40 for the victory.

“He was going seven-eighths for the first time, and he left [the gate] aggressive,” Husbands said. “By the time he came out of the chute, he relaxed. He’s just a class horse.”

Five Iron prevailed in the front-end battle, and Dan the Tin Man checked in third, ahead of Platitude. The scratch of Brilliant Comet led to only win and exacta wagering on the four-horse race.
