Concord Point wins $750,000 W.Va. Derby

Favorite Concord Point led wire-to-wire and won the $750,000

West Virginia Derby by a length on Saturday.

Bob Baffert-trained Concord Point ran the 1 1-8 mile dirt track

at Mountaineer Casino Racetrack & Resort in 1:51.1. Martin

Garcia, who rode Lookin at Lucky to wins in the Preakness and

Haskell Invitational, was aboard Concord Point and held off a

challenge from Exhi down the stretch.

Concord Point won for the fourth time in six career starts and

paid $3.60, $2.80 and $2.40 in the Grade 2 race for 3 year

olds.

Todd Pletcher-trained Exhi, a winner at Turfway Park in March

and the Lexington Stakes at Keeneland in April, finished second and

returned $4.40 and $3. Third-place Nacho Friend was more than eight

lengths behind Exhi and paid $3.40.
