Fast and Accurate Wins Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park
The $500,000 G3 Spiral Stakes was contested Saturday, March 25 at Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky. Three year olds took to Turfway Park's All Weather Track for the winner's share of the purse and the 50 qualifying points toward the Kentucky Derby in just over a month's time. Kendall Hansen's 24-1 longshot Fast and Accurate continued his upward trend and prevailed by three quarters of a length. Another longshot Blueridge Traveler gutted out a good second place finish at 35-1 odds and gained 20 qualifying points with Convict Pike getting in for third at 10-1 odds. 5-2 favorite Kitten's Cat finished a disappointing fourth in the field of 11 with Bronson, Giant Payday, Soglio, 4-1 second choice Parlor, En Hanse, King and His Court and Colonel Samsen completing the order of finish. Shiraz scratched.
