ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A musher from Eureka is in the lead in the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race.

According to the race tracker on the Yukon Quest’s website, Brent Sass left the Circle checkpoint early Monday morning, about 90 minutes ahead of the second place musher and defending champion, Allen Moore of Two Rivers.

Moore actually arrived earlier in Circle, but rested for about five hours. Sass blew through the checkpoint at 3:25 a.m.
