Solid return for Plate hopeful

Pyramid Park, the 5th choice in the winterbook odds for the June 25 Queen's Plate rallied to be a close second in his first start as a 3-year-old Sunday afternoon at Woodbine.
The son of Tethra was a bit slow to get going in the ankle-high slop, was tapped on the neck with jockey Slade Callaghan's whip, and then settled in for a rail run to the turn in the seven-furlong allowance race.
The colt floated off the rail and rallied in the four path down the stretch but came up 1 1/2 lengths short of catching speedster Initforthemoney.
"I thought he ran pretty well for his first race of the year over that kind of track," said Callaghan. "He took a little while to get a hold of the track so he did struggle a bit. I did think he was going to punch in a little more in the stretch but he didn't really like the track."
