Exaggerator did not disappoint yesterday, taking an early lead at the first turn and holding off Sunny Ridge by a neck in the Delta Downs Jackpot Saturday.
The 4-5 favorite, ridden by Kent Desormeaux, covered the 1 1/16 miles on a muddy track in 1:46.48, earning 10 points in the Road to the Kentucky Derby Series.
It was his third win in five starts, his last race being a disappointing fourth in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile. His points put him second in the series behind Nyquist.
Harlan Punch finished third.
