At other tracks

Tampa Bay Downs: Leading rider Daniel Centeno capped a sensational Oldsmar meet with his seventh stakes victory aboard Live Oak Plantation's Revved Up on Saturday in the $75,000 Chris Thomas Turf Classic. Centeno, top rider of the past two meets, gave Revved Up a rail-saving trip in a 2-length victory over Victory Alleged.

The 4-5 favorite in the field of 10, Revved Up paid $3.60, $3.20 and $2.60. Victory Alleged returned $10.40 and $6.20. I'm Only Laughing was another 11/2 lengths behind and paid $5.

The Downs had its third-highest co-mingled handle in track history at $7,499,057 with 10,690 fans on hand. The track's live racing season concludes today.

Arlington Park: Fort Prado, winner of the 2006 Tampa Bay Breeders' Cup at Tampa Bay Downs, became a millionaire with a second-place finish in the $100,000 James B. Tafel Illinois Owners Stakes in Arlington Heights. Owned by Team Block and trained by Chris Block, Fort Prado lost to Lord Carmen ($19) by 2 lengths as the even-money favorite.
