The Chandelier Stakes – GI [BC]
SA Race 8 1 1/16M – Dirt
Two Year Olds Fillies
1st Relax, trained by Mb Stables
A perfect five for five in her career now with this win here. She stalked the pace within a length for most of the way and then edged clear in the final stages to win by a length. She ran the distance in 1:42.13 and she earned $180.000 for the win.
2nd Interpoint, trained by Night Rider Stables
A very good run from this filly also as she came rolling late to get up for the second place spot. I wasn’t sure if she would be able to get the distance but she handled it nicely by coming off the pace and making one run. She ran very well to get up for second.
3rd Skygazer, trained by Rampage Stable
This filly also ran a decent race right here as she had a tough trip from an outside post. She went to the lead down the backside and that was just bad luck because the pace was pretty quick and she had to hold them off. She still was game and ran a very good third.
3rd Steady Acquaintance, trained by Nakamura Stables
A very tough trip for this filly also as she broke good and went straight to the lead from the outside post. She did drop back going into the backstretch and she was in a good spot. She was a little flat down the stretch but she at least got up for a dead heat third.
I think it is pretty obvious that we have a special filly on our hands with Relax as she is now five for five in her career. She has went through every challenge with ease but her biggest test is her next start in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies. Congratulations to Relax and Mb Stables.
