Sun Power Top Two Return in Edgar


STICKNEY, IL  -- The final stakes race of the 2013 Illinois thoroughbred season runs on Saturday as the $125,000 Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity will be contested at 1 1/16 miles on Hawthorne’s main track.  The Edgar will go as race seven of the nine race Hawthorne card.  The Edgar drew a field of nine, which included the top two finishers of the Sun Power stakes from November 9. 

            The winner of the Sun Power and 2-1 morning line favorite in the Edgar is Larry Rivelli trained Rambling Richie.  Sent off as the second choice in the Sun Power, Rambling Richie cleared the lead and then drew clear late to defeat a competitive field.  The Edgar will be the first time Rambling Richie goes two turns as jockey E.T. Baird will be reunited with this one.

            The favorite in the Sun Power and second choice at 5-2 in the Edgar is Jim DiVito trained Solar Flair.  The winner of the Troy Our Boy stakes at Fairmount in September, Solar Flair tried to go two turns in the Grade 3 Bourbon at Keeneland but faded after flashing speed in that start.  He came back into the Sun Power and was sent off as the 8-5 choice.  Rating along the rail in that start, he closed late to finish second behind Rambling Richie.  Francisco Torres comes in to ride Solar Flair for the Edgar.
