NEGRIL POINTS WINS AT FORT ERIE

Jockey Steve O'Brien urged Negril Point to the front almost from the start of Sunday's Fort Erie Race Track feature race -- a 6-furlong sprint for a purse of $6,100 -- and led throughout.

Estrella Del Cielo, with jockey Valerie Thompson, closed strongly on the far outside to finish second, just ahead of Sleightantagonism, ridden by Linda Fields.

Negril Point, who had finished second in his only other Fort Erie start, paid $21.50 to win and combined with Estrella Del Cielo for a $170.30 exactor.

Racing continues at Fort Erie today, Victoria Day in Canada. Post time for the first of 10 races is 1:30 p.m.
