New Farm homebred Hot Heir Skier (c, 3, Wildcat Heir--Uphill Skier, by Appealing Skier)
held on for a 3/4-length victory despite drifting out late in Monday’s Jimmy Winkfield S. at Aqueduct. The 5-2 shot raced between rivals in a three-way battle for the lead through fractions of :22.92 and :46.52. He kicked clear of Oliver Zip (City Zip) in upper stretch and looked home free before racing erratically, as Oliver Zip rerallied to just miss and Charleymillionaire (Sky Mesa) closed for third in a tight finish. Hot Heir Skier, who was coming off a 3 1/4-length maiden win at Laurel Dec. 26, completed the six furlongs in 1:11.25. JIMMY WINKFIELD S.
