FRANKLIN — Twin Creeks Racing Stable moved Law Professor from California because of the greater options offered with more racetracks in the East and Midwest. It proved a good move as the 4-year-old Constitution gelding won his first start for New York-based trainer Rob Atras, taking Thursday’s $400,000 FanDuel Tapit Stakes on opening day of the FanDuel Meet at Kentucky Downs.

“It was incredible. I couldn’t believe it,” Atras said by phone of winning his Kentucky Downs debut. “I never expected to win first time at that track.”
