A great finish in the Chandelier see’s Smokey Stover claim another big win this weekend.

Chandelier Stakes – Grade I [BC] [KYO]
1 1/16 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $300.00 Filly 2 Year Olds.

1st   Dali The Viking               Smokey Stover  Chirinos R

The trainer had a huge day today and this daughter of Dalitierri added to their success with a great late finish to win by a neck. She had taken her time to clear maidens but it looks clear now that she just needed some ground to show her true self and she stayed every inch of this trip today and will now go to the BC a real hope.

2nd   Sharp Suit               Rampage Stable  Rosario J

Lost nothing in defeat running a huge race for second after taking the Sorrento Stakes in her last start. She will renew rivalry with the winner in the BC and this was close enough to say it could go either way in November.

3rd   Book Of Aggravation  Estero Farms  Lanerie C J

Flew home for third to be beaten less than a length this was a good effort going forward and will have pleased her trainer with this great effort.

4th   Blazing By               Mb Stables  Saez L

Went to the front with the wide gate speed push but never really got in or looked comfortable and in the end just whacked away for fourth.
