In Preakness 2018's fourth race, Square Shooter wins against small field

Morning-line favorite Square Shooter pulled ahead of American Sailor midway through their 5-furlong race before finishing strong to win in the fourth event Saturday at the Preakness.

Just five of the 12 horses expected to race on the turf did so, with the Potts Wayne-trained 6-year-old claiming its 10th win in 30 career starts against the field of entrants 3 years old and above.

Square Shooter paid $5.60 to win. Runner-up Big Bella Brown paid $3.80, while third-place Grandiflora paid $2.80.
