Chancey Light wins the $50,000 Georgia Peaches Stakes at Calder on Saturday.

Trainer David Brownlee nearly pulled off a sweep of Saturday's $50,000 Georgia Peaches Stakes at Calder, sending out the first-, second-, and fourth-place finishers.

Chancey Light led the Brownlee brigade, finishing full of run to register a three-length victory over stablemate Spicy Light. Dansetta Light just missed completing the sweep when she finished a head behind Wekiva Mist for third.

"I thought we had finished one-two-three, but this is just fine," said Brownlee.

The Georgia Peach was restricted to progeny of stallions nominated to the Georgia Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association.

Chancey Light, ridden by Manoel Cruz, lagged at the back of the pack during the early stages of the one-mile Georgia Peaches. She advanced along the hedge down the backstretch, overtook the tiring Wekiva Miss near midstretch, and won going away.

Spicy Light also lagged off the contentious pace. She saved ground around the second turn, then finished strongly to be second. Wekiva Light held off several early challenges for the lead, edged clear in early stretch, but weakened in the final furlong.

The three-prong Brownlee entry returned $3.80. The victory was the fourth in 21 career starts for Chancey Light, who is owned by J.D. Farms and Peggy Dellheim. All three of the Brownlee runners as well as fifth-place finisher elegant Light were also bred by J.D. Farms.
