Onthedeanslist wins the Col. Bradley Handicap at the Fair Grounds meet at Harrahs Louisiana Downs.
Team Valor Stables' Onthedeanslist set the pace, then held off the charge of odds-on favorite Fort Prado to capture the $75,000 Col. E.R. Bradley Handicap for older turf horses Sunday at the Fair Grounds meet at Harrah's Louisiana Downs.
Onthedeanslist, ridden by Corey Lanerie, set modest fractions of :24.85 for the first quarter-mile and :49.30 for the half, while Fort Prado was last, eight lengths off the pace.
Jockey Robby Albarado made his move with Fort Prado in the turn for home, but he would not have enough to overtake Onthedeanslist, who proved best by three-quarters of a length.
Onthedeanslist, a 6-year-old son of Honor Grades trained by Ralph Nicks, completed about 1 1/16 miles on the Franks turf course in 1:44.17. He paid $15.40, $3.80, and $3.40. Fort Prado, who was seeking his sixth win of 2005, returned $2.20 and $2.10. Middleweight paid $3.80 to show.
The win was the ninth in 21 lifetime starts for Onthedeanlist, who increased his career earnings to more than $297,000.
