FEAR THE COWBOY Takes Evangeline Mile

FEAR THE COWBOY turned the tables on Graded stakes winner Great Minds to capture the $100,000 Evangeline Mile S. by 1/2 length.The 4-year-old colt by COWBOY CAL sat behind the leaders until the far turn, went three wide to secure the lead at the top of the stretch and held off the runner-up over a sloppy, sealed track. FEAR THE COWBOY was coming off a solid win here in May, and the race before that finished runner-up to Great Minds in the Borgata S. He’s now won three of five starts in 2016, and last year took Gulfstream Park’s Three Chopt Road S. by 3 1/4 lengths. Lifetime record: 13-5-3-1, $201,919. O-Kathleen Amaya & Raffaele Centofanti.
