Belmont: Sensibly Chic turns tables

Email

Receiving a perfect stalking trip from John Velazquez, Sensibly Chic was able to reverse two prior losses to Bank Audit by rolling to a 3 3/4-length victory in the Grade 2, $150,000 at Belmont Park.

Bank Audit, who had beaten Sensibly Chic in the Distaff Breeders' Cup at Aqueduct in March and the Genuine Risk Handicap here in May, rallied belatedly from eighth place to finish second, three-quarters of a length ahead of Ender's Sister.

It was the first graded stakes victory for Sensibly Chic, a 5-year-old New York-bred trained by Tim Tullock.

Sensibly Chic made a three-wide bid for the lead around the turn, took control turning for home, and drew off. She covered 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.31 over a fast track and returned $7.10 as the favorite. Tullock said Sensibly Chic would be pointed to the Grade 2, $500,000 Princess Rooney at Calder on July 9.

* In the $80,350 , Paradise's Boss reverted to his solid 2004 form after two poor races to begin his 5-year-old campaign, coming from off the pace to upset by five lengths. Paradise's Boss ($70.50) covered 2 1/2 miles in a course-record 4:33.95.

Class Yankee got up to be second over Mixed Up, the 8-5 favorite, who jumped poorly over the last two fences.

Xavier Aizpuru rode Paradise's Boss for trainer Jack Fisher and owner Mrs. Henry Stern.
