=== Kindergarden Kid rallies to win Sycamore Stakes ===
 Lexington,  KY (Sports Network) - Kindergarden Kid, ridden by Julien Leparoux,
 rallied  down the  stretch to catch Ioya Bigtime and win the $100,000 Sycamore
 Stakes at Keeneland.
 Racing  fifth in  the seven-horse field for most of the race, Kindergarden Kid
 found  another  gear with 100 yards  to go and overtake the front-running Ioya
 Bigtime at the wire.
 Trained  by Mike  Maker,  Kindergarden Kid  posted a  neck  victory over  Ioya
 Bigtime  with  Miami Deco holding  onto third. Finishing fourth was Rahystrada
 followed  by  Seton Hall and  Canaveral. Musketier, the 5-2 favorite, finished
 last in what was probably his final career start.
 The time for the 1 1/2-miles was 2:31.80 on a firm turf course.
 Kindergarden Kid, claimed by Maker for Ken and Sarah Ramsey in August, won for
 the  first time  this year and picked  up $60,000. The victory broke an eight-
 race losing streak and boosted his career earnings to $383,959.
 The  5-year-old  gelding was coming  off consecutive  thirds in the Joe Hirsch
 Turf  Classic at Belmont Park and the Kentucky Turf Cup at Kentucky Downs. The
 gelding has now won five of 21 lifetime starts.
 Kindergarden  Kid returned $8.00, $3.80 and $2.80. Ioya Bigtime paid $3.80 and
 $3.00, and Miami Deco paid $4.80 to show.
