Captain Trevor left with two others off the gate and settled behind Sugar Factory as that one captured the top. From the outside, race-favorite Workin Ona Mystery roared first over to challenge the leader with a half of :57.
Sugar Factory struggled but kept the lead until Captain Trevor came out of the pocket to replace Workin Ona Mystery as that one tired and faded by three-quarters in 1:24.1.
Captain Trevor was all out in the stretch, passing the rest and keeping ahead of a fast-closing Blood Money, who paced enough to get second ahead of Lyons Johnny JNR, who passed Sugar Factory to get third.
Stag Party scratched from the race.
Captaintreacherous is the sire of Captain Trevor, who is owned by Brittany Farms LLC, Marvin Katz, J. Grant and Captain Trevor Racing and was bred by Bay’s Stable and Riverview Breeding.
Trainer Tony Alagna said the colt is “tactical, a handy horse, really laid back and easy to drive,” calling Captain Trevor’s last few efforts “phenomenal.”
The winner paid $9.80 to win.
