LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Billings-owned Frac Daddy romped to victory in the $150,000 Ben Ali Stakes on Saturday at Keeneland.

The gray 4-year-old, owned by Carter Stewart and Ken Schlenker of Magic City Thoroughbred Partners, took charge with a strong move on the final turn and pulled away down the stretch in the 1 1/8-mile Polytrack event.

This was the 84th year for the Grade 3 stakes race -- and the win was worth $90,000.

The Kentucky-bred Frac Daddy, which went off at 5-1 odds in the 10-horse field, returned $13.20, $6.80 and $5.

Trained by Ken McPeek, Frac Daddy ran in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes last year.

On Saturday he was ridden by Alan Garcia and won by nearly five lengths over Stealcase. His winning time was 1:49.61.

It was Frac Daddy's first victory since an Oct. 17 allowance race also at Keeneland.

He has four wins and five seconds in 14 starts and has earnings of $515,280.

Frac Daddy was bought for $50,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sale in 2011.
