ST. PETERSBURG - D'Arcy Kennel's Kinloch Brae, a 19-1 shot, pulled a major surprise by winning the $85,000 Sprint Classic on Saturday night at Derby Lane, the St. Petersburg greyhound track.
A 31-month-old red brindle male out of a litter by Craigie Mo Town and Greys Free Style, Kinloch Brae won by 21/2 lengths in box-to-wire fashion. Winning time for 550 yards was 30.35 seconds. First place paid $25,000. It was the first stakes win for Kinloch Brae and fourth Sprint Classic triumph for owner-trainer Mick D'Arcy.
Kinloch Brae paid $41.80, $14.60 and $9.40 as the sixth wagering choice. Djays Itchintogo ($7.80 and $4) was second, 4 lengths in front of Flying Macbeth ($5.60). Red Dirt Road was fourth, followed by Ballet Lady, 3-5 favorite Flying Stanley, Flying Fabian and Brady Thomas. The 4-5-7-8 superfecta returned $6,049.20.
Santa Anita: Monterey Jazz played the old come-and-get-me game in the $1-million Santa Anita Handicap and lost badly. Heatseeker chased down the speedster in the stretch in Arcadia, Calif., to win the Big 'Cap for older horses by three-quarters of a length. Monterey Jazz, the 12-1 wagering favorite, charged to the lead under Russell Baze and built a 12-length advantage at the three-quarters pole on the all-weather surface that had favored pacesetters. But the 4-year-old dark-brown colt who led a strung-out field down the backstretch had challengers galore on a reformulated artificial track. Heatseeker, who was fourth most of the way, took the lead past the eighth pole and finished 1 1/4 miles in 2:00.42 under Rafael Bejarano's left-handed whip. The Ireland-bred horse paid $16, $7 and $4.80. Also, Colonel John held off the closing charge of El Gato Malo to win the $200,000 Sham Stakes for 3-year-olds by a half-length. Ridden by Garrett Gomez, Colonel John covered 11/8 miles under a light drizzle in 1:50.15 on the all-weather surface and paid $5, $2.40 and $2.10.
Trotting horse dies: Windsong's Legacy, the trotting Triple Crown winner in 2004, died at age 7 in Manalapan, N.J. The Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey said Windsong's Legacy died at Perretti Farms in Cream Ridge, where he was in his fourth breeding season. The association said a ruptured aorta or heart attack was suspected.
