    FORT ERIE, Ont. Cheap Jordan 13 Online . -- Racing fifth through a half mile, jockey Miguel Mena knew Uncaptured had the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes in the bag. Canadas reigning horse of the year came from fifth to overtake River Seven in deep stretch for an impressive one-length win in the second leg of Canadian thoroughbred racings Triple Crown on Tuesday night at Fort Erie Racetrack. "I rode him like a good horse with confidence," Mena said. "I waited and waited and said I was going to wait as long as I could. "I just got to the half-mile pole and he grabbed the bit and I said, Its over. When I got to the outside, I mean, he was flying." Uncaptured, the prohibitive 2/5 favourite made a five-wide bid on the final turn and simply took off. The three-year-old son of 04 Kentucky Derby runner-up Lion Heart effortlessly tracked down leader River Seven and stormed into the lead at the 1/16ths pole and cruised to his first win as a three year old. "He ran by us like we were standing," Steve Bahen, the jockey for third-place finisher Niigons Glory, said of Uncaptured. "Hes a nice horse and thats why he was horse of the year." Uncaptured broke from the gate in second but fell back to fifth in the six-horse field. He stayed there through three-quarters of a mile before finishing the 1 3/16-mile race in 1:55.49 on a fast dirt track for the $300,000 winners share. "He was galloping behind those four horses just waiting for me to ask him," Mena said. "Hes such a cool horse, he doesnt worry. "If you put him on the bit he grabs it. If you sit on him, hell do whatever you want." Trainer Mark Casse won this race for the second straight year -- he did so in 2012 with Dixie Strike -- and third overall after doing so in 09 with Gallant. But Casse, Canadas top conditioner five times, said this victory was an anxious one. "I was very surprised, I was shocked," Casse said of Uncaptureds trip. "Going down the backside I kept saying to myself, He really likes the dirt. "Miguel lets him go along, then he picks him up and then (Uncaptured) takes off. Im like, Im hoping thats what hes doing." River Seven held on for second with Niigons Glory taking third. Jagger M, Power Phil and Rackman rounded out the six-horse field. "We were really pressed into the second turn," said Eurico Rosa da Silva, River Sevens jockey. "But my horse ran very bravely and ran a good race." Dynamic Sky and filly Spring in the Air, both also Casse horses, were late scratches. Casse had entered four horses in the race -- fourth-place Jagger M was the other. He has endured much criticism for entering multiple horses into events but Casse said the Prince of Wales race was a prime example of how quickly fortunes can turn in horse racing. "In no way, shape or form am I entering horses trying to show off," he said. "Ive been doing this 34 years and everything is possible so I just try to cover my tracks. "Its better to be in the race wanting to scratch than be outside wanting to be in it. I had every intention of running Dynamic Sky as well as Uncaptured and (Saturday) morning (Dynamic Sky) trained and came back and was lame." Uncaptured began the year as a legitimate 13 Kentucky Derby contender but earned his first win of the season in five starts. Three times he had to settle for second, including his last start, the $100,000 Matt Winn Stakes on June 15 at Kentuckys Churchill Downs when he was edged by Code West in the 1 1/16-mile dirt event. Uncaptured was Canadian thoroughbred racings top horse and champion two-year-old male in 12 after winning six-of-seven starts, including five stakes events. The lone blemish was a fifth-place finish as the 2/5 favourite in the Grade 3 $224,800 Grey Stakes won by River Seven on Woodbines polytrack. Uncaptured continued his impressive run on dirt, earning his third win in four races on the surface, with the other decision being a second. Overall, he earned his seventh victory in 12 career starts and boosted his lifetime earnings to $960,000. Queens Plate winner Midnight Aria didnt run Tuesday night, leaving Wando as the last Triple Crown champion in 2003. The final Triple Crown race is the $500,000 Breeders Stakes, a 1 1/2-mile turf event Aug. 18 at Torontos Woodbine Racetrack. And Casse said Uncaptured will definitely skip that event. "No, he likes the dirt," Casse said. "Dynamic Sky was better (Tuesday morning) so Im hoping he can make the Breeders." For the second straight year, a cloud of uncertainty hangs over Fort Erie Racetrack. Racing at the 116-year-old facility was only made possible after a one-year transitional funding agreement with the Ontario government. The situation for 2014 remains unclear, thus creating more doubt regarding the Prince of Wales future at the venerable track. "I can remember being here last year and hearing this might be the last time hear and I said, Ah, I wouldnt bet on that one," Casse said. "Hopefully this is not our last one. "It would be a shame if it is." Air Jordan Retro 13 For Sale . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago.

All this with a new coach in Frank Vogel, hired after Scott Skiles sudden resignation.The Magic team that takes the Amway Center court Wednesday in the season opener against the visiting Miami Heat is going to be hardly recognizable to the team that finished in April. Orlando has seven new players and heightened expectations after a four-year playoff drought.Everybody is ready, Magic forward Aaron Gordon said. Offseason is great, but this is what we live for. This is what we live to do. Its so much fun.

Dwyane Wade surprisingly left for the Chicago Bulls after 13 years in Miami. LeBron James left two seasons ago for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But they still have the steady hand of veteran point guard Goran Dragic running with Whiteside to help fill that void.As the teams battle changes and adjustments to new rosters and new teammates, the Magic and the Heat will be trying to feel comfortable in their new skins.Its going to be an 82-game process, Magic coach Frank Vogel said.
