Icon Ike Rallies to Win the Sam-Son Purse

LEXINGTON, KY (April 25, 2012) – Fletcher and Carolyn Gray’s homebred stakes winner Icon Ike returned to his winning ways when he captured the featured $58,000 Sam-Son Purse for 3-year-olds before a crowd of 10,684. Icon Ike was fifth in the Transylvania (G3) at Keeneland on April 6.

Trained by J. Larry Jones, Icon Ike was the 3-1 co-second choice for the 5½-furlong allowance race on the turf course. The Yes It’s True colt and jockey Robby Albarado made a four-wide move on the final turn and reeled in the leaders down the stretch to win by 1¼ lengths in 1:03.32 over 20-1 shot Blings Express.
