ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Reigning champion Dallas Seavey held the lead Wednesday morning in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

The 28-year-old musher spent two and a half hours on the trail from Takotna (tak-KAHT'-nah), reached Ophir (OH-fer) at 2:16 a.m., and after a five-minute stop, departed again at 2:21 a.m.

That was about three and a half hours ahead of Noah Burmeister, who left Ophir just before 6 a.m. after a 15-minute rest.

John Baker was 10 minutes behind Burmeister.

Brent Sass, Nicolas Petit, Ken Anderson and other mushers were taking longer breaks in Ophir before a 90-mile run to Iditarod.

Wednesday is the fourth day of the 1,000-mile race to Nome.

The winner is expected to reach the finish line about nine days after the start of the race.
