Three Wonders stalked unchallenged early leader Field Cat from second position before sweeping by that rival in the final furlong to win the $250,900 Kent Breeders' Cup Stakes (gr. IIIT) by 1 1/4 lengths Sunday at Delaware Park. Over firm turf, Three Wonders completed the 1 1/8 miles in 1:48.95 with Pat Day in the irons.
Field Cat came home second, 2 3/4 lengths ahead of Dawn of the Condor. Handsome Trick finished fourth, followed by Polish Miner, Unrecorded, Blaze and Blues, and Yeowzer.

Three Wonders returned $14.40, $6.60, and $4.60. The winning exacta combination paid $69.20. (Chart, Equibase
