Great Challenger, a 2-year-old colt by Conway Hall, easily won the $90,000 Lexington Breeders Classic final Friday night (Sept. 12) at The Red Mile. The time was 1:56.3.

Driver David Miller moved Great Challenger to the front midway down the backstretch, taking control of the race from Sand Vic. After a half in :59, Great Challenger pulled away with a final half in :57.3. Sand Vic held on for second while Adams Hall took third.

The Breeders Classic final was full of top pedigreed colts. Great Challenger is a brother to Hambletonian winner Amigo Hall and Adams Hall is out of the great matron Amour Angus, dam of Andover Hall and others.

Great Challenger was making just his fourth career start. "Our plan was to get him ready late, for Lexington stakes," said Jim Campbell, who trains the colt for owners Arlene and Jules Siegel.
