Left alone on the lead, lightly raced Alezzandro got brave in the stretch run of Sunday's CAN$500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes under Todd Kabel and went gate to wire for a 1 3/4-length win at Fort Erie.
Leonnatus Anteas, Canada's champion 2-year-old colt in last year and fourth choice in the wagering for Sunday's 148th running of the Queen's Plate at Woodbine, has been scratched.
Leonnatus Anteas and jockey Jono Jones pulled away from heavily favored Mike Fox in mid-stretch to impressively win the $250,000 Cup & Saucer Stakes for Canadian-bred 2-year-olds Sunday at Woodbine.
