CD Race #6 $300.000

3+ F&M 122/124 Lbs 1-Mile

Course Record-1:33.90 (Hollywood Eclipse-2021)

Stakes Record-1:34.69 (Eternal Jammer-2012)

1st: #3 Terra Command (Threshold/J. Lezcano 124): Broke best and quickly assumed command at the head of the single-file line of six.  Was left uncontested on the lead through solid fractions and was never anything but a winner.  Became a little leg-weary inside the final furlong but found the wire in time.

2nd: #6 League Of Legends (Smokey Stover/J.R. Velazquez 122): Broke 2nd in the line of six and remained there until being passed on the turn.  Re-rallied up the rail to secure the place, but could not get to a desperate winner late.

3rd: #2 Always A Virgin (Tinkey/T. Gaffalione 122): Broke fourth in the line of six.  Was the first to break ranks as she made an early move at the five-eighths pole.  Moved into second on the turn but could not sustain the rally and had to settle for show honors.

Terra Command is a 5yo, Lest Ye Command mare.  She now has nine wins from 29 starts and earnings of $875.090.  Congratulations to Terra Command and Threshold for winning the G3 Chilukki!
