NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Ecton Park edged by Answer Lively, the Breeder's Cup and Eclipse Award winner, for a photo finish win in Sunday's $125,000 Risen Star Stakes.

Ecton Park, second choice in the wagering, threaded his way through the field of 12 colts and rebounded from jostling along the rail and completed the 1 1-16th miles in 1:44.83.

Trained by Jerry Quinn and ridden by Shane Sellers, Ecton Park took home $75,000, the winner's share of the purse, and paid $11.80, $5 and $4.80.

Answer Lively, the 3-5 favorite who broke through the middle of the pack to finish second, paid $3 and $2.80, and Kimberlite Pipe returned $19.20 to show.
